Tice the latest reported candidate

Share

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.

    DD,

    Report: Knicks will target Matt Giordano next summer

    To solve all their Defensive issues obviously.

    Gio named Global Cultural Ambassador ???

    oh snap!

  • DMAC

    Haven’t you heard already.

    Gio was hired as our secondary coach this morning.

  • DeuceDeuce

    No Wikipedia must mean a lot of the Blog “Pro’s” cant come on?..

  • ohioraider

    Hell, let’s bring in Jim Caldwell while we’re at it. And I still say Marty Morningwood is a big stiff.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Thats debatable… I mean the Colts secondary was pretty awful, but their defense was at times more competitive than ours

    ***

    BCZ,

    come on man. I’d rather have Kevin Ross or Rod Woodson as DC than that dude. Have the Colts ever had a decent secondary? Even when Bob Sanders was healthy, they were giving up tons of yardage, TD’s and big plays – weren’t they?

    But you said all jokes aside… Then that?

    I dont know what to believe..

  • Richard Bentley

    What a bunch of nonsense. Nobody (including all you posters) have no idea what Reggie is going to do (or is really doing), so you sit there and blow things out your a–. When he finally does hire someone, maybe you can think up something that makes sense. Maybe that last sentence is a little optimistic.

  • DMAC

    Exactly

    Is that because he’s an early riser?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Question:

    If Mike Zimmer were named HC of the Oakland Raiders, who would he bring along as OC & DC?

  • RaiderRockstar

    Ohio,

    look at Caldwell’s resume and get back with me

  • RaiderRockstar

    if McKenzie is owner and Moss will be HC …

    can we hire Ted Hendricks as DC ???

  • DMAC

    FK!!!

  • RaiderRockstar

    high of 40 in Podunk today, suckas!

  • RaiderRockstar

    it’s Wednesday. can we start playoffs talk?

    who is going to win this weekend and go to the SB?

    I hope Giants versus Ravens (repeat of SB 2000) … but think Pats versus 49ers!

  • R8ER MIKE

    Can’t be true cause the Raiders have notified the whole defensive staff yesterday that they will remain on staff.

    Mike,

    that saying gets overused in Podunk as well, but it is true

  • DMAC

    I did say I was spoiled w/ this Cali weather.
    lol
    By the way I’m in Oakland.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Tru,

    well they are all on the Raiders website!

    who cares?

    we’re going 12-4 next season with or without Chuck B, baby 😛

  • RaiderCrunch

    Bout 32 right now, probably drop down to 27 tonight. Cold, but aint that bad. If the 50mph plus winds hit, could take it down some more, gettin colder, but still bearable.

  • RaiderCrunch

    Amy or Marks first question has to be: Why is he still here?

  • Just hire W Moss, and stop wasting time.

  • realtruraider

    It does seem strange that we haven’t heard anything about the whole coaching staff, wasn’t yesterday the deadline to notify coaches if they will be retained or not?

    Yep. Hire Gruden, Moss or Kromer and get on with it.

    I understand if McKenzie wants to pick the brains of the coaches of our opponents this past season, but damn…why waste time with Morningwheg or Tice?

    Might as well talk to Mad Mike Martz while he is at it.

    He should also talk to Scott Linehan and Todd Haley!

    Sheesh

  • lefty12

    I love what Reggie is doing.Picking the brains of those associated with the offenses we played last year to get a better feel of how our defensive players are thought of.

  • DKnight007

    The only guys on that D staff that should be maaaaaybe considered to stay are Waufle and Woodson.

    The rest can kick rocks. Sorry Biekert.

    I can tell McKenzie what they are saying to him.

    “Your defense coordinator makes too many mistakes, and the overall scheme sucks and the whole defense is vanilla.”

    #########################################################
    Didn’t Reggie say at the press conference the new coach would pick his own staff.As soon as he said that it meant the current staff was out.It is possible some might be re-hired by the new coach.

    Poor Viqueens.

    At least he isn’t on Reggie’s short list of HC possibilities!

  • realtruraider

    Fk BSPN, I heard a few of those fker’s say that out of the coaching jobs still open, Oaklands is the least attractive. I mean C’MON MAN really. They will never give us any respect until we make them. I was hoping it would be this year.

    Did I just get “Dakota’d” by Rockstar?

    MCKENZIE WILL DO ALL THE HIRE’N & FIRE’N IN ONE PRESS CONFERENCE..THIS IS WHO IS IN,THIS IS WHO IS OUT.HAVE A NICE DAY…

  • lefty12

    Reggie’s supposed strength is evaluating players.What better way to start those evaluations than to get feedback from opposing coaches who coached against them last season?If he hired a HC,he wouldn’t be able to pick those guys brains.

  • Schefter just tweeted that we interviewed Allen today. Nothing about McCoy though, which makes me wonder if he hasn’t already been offered the Dolphins job.

    —————————————-

    If this what’s happening then it’s a smart move. Although I don’t see what Mornhinweg has to do with that since we haven’t played the Eagles in a few years. So who’s to say that’s the reason for the Tice interview if he’s interviewing guys like Mornhinweg as well who didn’t have that experience against the Raiders in 2011.

  • realtruraider

    On the Scott Vanpelt Show the two dudes were debating if they were Tice would they leave the Bears OC job to take the Raiders HC job. To me its a no brainer but Im a die hard Raiders fan and BSPN are Raider haters so who knows.
