Morninhweg interviewing with McKenzie today


Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is interviewing with general manager Reggie McKenzie for the Raiders coaching vacancy today, according to NFL.com.
Mornhingweg has spent the past nine seasons with the Eagles, the past eight directing one of the league’s most-productive offenses. He coached the Detroit Lions in 2001-02, when he compiled a 5-27 record.
Mornhinweg attended Oak Grove High School in San Jose and coached for the 49ers from 1997-2000.
In other news, the Miami Dolphins settled upon Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin to be their new head coach, which leaves Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and Dolphins secondary coach Todd Bowles still on the open market.
McCoy canceled his planned interview with McKenzie on Wednesday so that he could concentrate on the Dolphins job. McKenzie reportedly wasn’t thrilled by McCoy’s change of plans.
Philbin’s hire also figures to quicken McKenzie’s pace if he has any intention of hiring one or more Packers coaches. Philbin no doubt will consider bringing along Winston Moss, Darren Perry and Tom Clements.
Moss is thought to be the front-runner for the Raiders coaching job, though he has yet to be interviewed.
Bowles and Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen are the only two candidates for the Raiders job known to have interviewed. ESPN’s Adam Schefter maintains that the Raiders interviewed New Orleans Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. one week ago, though Saints general manager Mickely Loomis said it didn’t happen.

    I always liked Waufle, he is a intellectual. But coaching NFL players is not exactly like teaching in college. It takes a different skill set. And then again you need smart players. Al was never big on drafting “smart” players.

    al d. (# 692) i believe he had 2 drops also. anyway F–K crabtree. F–k the forty- niners. bottom line dhb isn’t what’s wrong with the raiders.

    satele,garbage. carlisle,garbage. barnes,garbage. seymore, garbage. suck bresnahan, garbage. his defense,garbage. run defense,garbage. pass defense, damn near garbage.

    700. Exactly. Then you’ve got guys like Steve who have a clear bias toward “Hubert”. Seems to have a genuine dislike for the man.

    Considers him a lying self serving ladder climber.

    Pretty sure some of that comes from people close to him but none the less seemed like a decnet guy who did not lose the locker room and got fired because Mark had his mind made up to revamp.

    We’re definitely going to a 3-4 now with Wauffle leaving.

    I can see that…
    Funny is, where did Spags go again?


    Exactly, I thought we had a strong chance of getting Spagnuolo as DC because we had Wauffle. But McKenzie obviously wants to focus on a 3-4 defense. Which I don’t have a problem with. But yeah, the re-uniting of Spags/Wauffle was writing on the wall.

    Everyone knows the D sucked,but don’t you think we could have won at least one more game if our offense hadn’t been outscored 3 to 1 in the 2nd half of games?

  • space man spiff

    post:699, the thing is when mr.davis died. he had his moment to take control. he did ala: carson palmer trade. yet there was no leadership on his part. i like hue jack,

    but he should have came in and said i’m the boss. somewhere that wasn’t established. (record for penalties). everybody in the league knows we have know we have know discipline and we can’t stop the run . this is what kills us every year.

    hue jack knew, said those areas would be addressed under his watch. HE FAILED. time to move on .

  • raiderzmaverick

    Yeah, if our “D” didn’t give up 2 touchdown leads, I do think we could have won lefty.

    If Hue wasn’t such a great coach, why the hell did Mark fire him?


    Maybe he didn’t. Maybe Reggie was telling the truth when he said it was his call and it wasn’t about Hue, it was about Reggie “bringing in his own guy.”

    Or maybe Mike Silver was right and Mark is in over his head.

  • space man spiff

    if…. we can establish a defense that can play solid. stop the run pressure the quarterback,consistantly to help the pass defense. build an offensive line to give palmer time. like gannon had.
    establish kevin boss more in the offense (which hue jack didn’t do). we’re not that far away. until my next post…………. ” peace out b—-es !

    Again and as usual, we will end up being the last org. to hire our new coach.

    Not a departure from Mr. Davis.

    Traditionally we wait till last so the bargainning chips are in our favor. That’s why they come so cheap.

    And Chucky, bet we got hime for a steal. Probably keep him as he makes good financial sense.

    That’s not seriously what you want is it? For Raiders to get the best deal for a HC and DC?

    I thought we were leaving those days behind and we were gonna get “good” coaches ? Not who we can get the cheapest.

  • space man spiff

    chris in ny: mike silver has always been a raider-hater. he would love nothing more than to see us fail ,then write some mickey mouse column. he’s a punk. that’s the bottom line.

    al davis punked him back in the day, and he ain’t over it. f–k mike silver. now i’m gone …..peace out
    b–ches !
