Tice the latest reported candidate


Mike Tice, anyone?

The current offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears and former head coach of the Minnesota Vikings is the latest coach the Raiders have expressed an interest in, according to the Chicago Tribune, which reported Oakland had requested permission to speak to Tice.

Tice coached the Vikings from the end of the 2001 season through the 2005 season and had a record of 33-34.

Chicago’s offensive line coach, Tice was elevated to offensive coordinator following the season by Lovie Smith, replacing Mike Martz.

The Raiders have made no public comment on their coaching search since general manager Reggie McKenzie took over on Jan. 6.
