Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy is supposed to interview for the Raiders head coaching vacancy in Denver today with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie. If so, it might not mean much.
McCoy reportedly is one of three finalists for the Miami Dolphins coaching vacancy. One of the others is Dolphins interim coach Todd Bowles, who interviewed with McKenzie at the start of this process.
In other news, Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice is scheduled to interview with McKenzie on Tuesday about the vacancy created by the firing of Hue Jackson on Jan. 10.
As for the Raiders assistant coaches, those under contract now are free to seek employment elsewhere, given the Raiders didn’t notify them Tuesday if they are going to be kept around.
League rules specify that coaches under contract are to be notified by the third Tuesday after the regular season ends if they aren’t going to be kept around or might be terminated.
McKenzie said that he will let the head coach make the determination on which coaches are asked back. Given the Raiders don’t have a head coach, no decision has been made.
No word yet on whether McKenzie has set up an interview with Green Bay Packers assistant head coach/linebackers coach Winston Moss.
Moss is thought to be a favorite for the job, based upon his strong relationship with McKenzie, as well as the fact that McKenzie has told people in the past that he intended to hire Moss as his head coach if he ever got in a position to make such a call.
