Report: Raiders coaching candidate backs out

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, January 18th, 2012 at 6:55 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy has removed himself from consideration for the Raiders head coaching vacancy, according to the Denver Post.
McCoy was set to interview with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie on Wednesday. Instead, McCoy informed McKenzie that he isn’t interested, canceled the interview and boarded a plane for New York for a second interview with Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross about their coaching vacancy.
McKenzie also was scheduled to interview Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen in Denver on Wednesday. No word on if that one went off as planned.
The word from Miami is that McCoy considers himself to be the front-runner for the Dolphins job, and he didn’t want to do anything to jeopardize that by entertaining other suitors.
McKenzie, according to the Miami Herald, wasn’t real thrilled with McCoy’s change of heart.

    This must be why Jamista follows him like others follow Teblow’s. It can’t be the scandals and the reprimands. Too bad Jamista can’t get it up even chowing a handful of viagra.

    Can we puleeeese stop with the Gruden talk?

    Why would a guy making really big bucks with his announcing job come back here as coach?
    =====================================

    Those guys don’t make “that” much as analysts. Probably “only” a $300-400,000/yr. Which isn’t bad considering they only work part of the year. A HC at this level is going to make multi millions. But as I have said in here for years, Gruden drove two franchises right into the ground. He is not going to be offered a third any time soon. Regardless of what you guys think.

    _____________________________________________________

    Unconfirmed “google” reports say that Gruden makes $4.3M a year for Monday night football. (Just google it, plenty of unconfirmed sites) Other sites said that Michael Strahan and Tiki Barber made between $2-3M as TV analysists.

    do we need 1500 posts to get anymore new news???

  • Forrest Hump

    If we are using wrestling characters it goes like this.

    GM- Randy “Legend Killer” Orton (self explanatory)

    HC- The Undertaker- Only wears black and never quits.

    DC- Goldberg- We need that kind of intensity in our defense.

    OC- Bret “The Hitman” Hart -The Excellence of Exuction is exactly what keeps our O on track.

    SP Teams -Stone Cold Steve Austin- And thats the bottom line.

    PR- The Rock (If ya smell what we are cooking)

    There you go kids.

    Sorry, Dutch…. this is lost on me.

    I was far too fked up to remember/take seriously that movie. I do remember them smokin a doob with ol W though.

    =============================================

    Who knows. Boy that is an awful lot of money. That is more than they made playing. Which does not make a lot of sense to me. I could see the guys on the Network Pregame shows making more than the color guys who do one game, and certainly the MNF and SNF guys would make more, but multi-multi-millions? I find that hard to believe. But maybe…..

  • mack-madden

    Forrest Hump i like your list except…

    FCK steve austin.

    he is a pretty boy.

    id replace him with the nature boy.

    WTF is going on around here? I didn’t know this was a Raiders meet WWF 80′s & 90′s blog!

    Give me Randy Savage for HC,
    Paul Mr. Wonderful Orndorff for OC,
    & Hercules for DC.
