Raiders interview another candidate for head coaching job

Share

The Raiders interviewed Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur on Friday, according to a report by the Boston Globe.
Earlier this week, the Raiders interviewed Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell for their head coaching position. It’s unclear whether Shurmur met with the Raiders in person or conducted his interview by phone.
Tony Sparano spent the final 12 games of the season as the Raiders interim coach after he replaced the fired Dennis Allen in late September. He also is a candidate for the job, though on a full-time basis.
Shurmur posted a 9-23 mark as the Cleveland Browns coach in 2011-12. He has spent the past two seasons with the Eagles as the leader of coach Chip Kelly’s wide-open offensive attack.
Shurmur has worked with the likes of Nick Foles, Mark Sanchez and Michael Vick the past two seasons, with Foles and Sanchez enjoying sustained success.
The Raiders also are interested in interviewing the following candidates: 49ers tight ends coach Eric Mangini, Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.

    Who?

    If Reggie had any foresight or better judgment he wouldve hired Bowles as HC when he first interviewed him before DA.

    Now? Bowles is hot commodity….

    He’ll brew up yet another 2003-2011 turd pie for you, I’m sure.

    Scroll back a couple of hours of chat.

    your momma

  • Steve

    Mark is a necrophiliac?

  • GG
  • I don’t believe it.
    There is a former Male prnstr named Mark Davis, that has to be the confusion.

  • Myopinion

    It was a tweet from I guess a pornstar. Not his girlfriend just her and mark in a pic. And she put something like” I can die happy, I’ve met mark davis”.

  • It is not a list of players 30 GM’s “missed” because you know, they actually drafted them.
    Players are slotted to go in certain spots. These guys are top 10, first rounders, mid round picks, late round picks.
    Other teams drafted Pro Bowlers. Some drafted big time starters. Seahawks drafted starting Offensive lineman on their SB team.
    We got Juron Criner and Miles Burris.

  • Rick Worth

    My Momma used to say to me “life is like a box of donuts, you never know what you all get”. True story.

  • I have to see it, nothing on twitter in the last week with a simple “Mark Davis” twitter search.
    I would think the prnstar was talking about Mark Davis, the famous male prnstar.

  • Rick Worth

    Has anyone ever seen Mark with a chick? Curious. And no not my Ma.

  • Got it, Bonnie Rotten.
    She is a Raider fan.

  • Myopinion

    Saw it when I scrolled back. Probably midnight or so.

  • Got it know, it was on instagram.

  • GG

    They must be serious about Del Rio….bevell and shurmur had more informal ones apparently….

    ————

    The Oakland Raiders have requested permission to interview Broncos defensive coordiantor Jack Del Rio on Sunday.

    The Raiders contingent will interview Del Rio in the Denver area.

    Del Rio, 51, was head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2003 until late in the 2011 season. He has been the Broncos’ defensive coordinator the past three seasons. Denver’s D ranks third in total defense this season.

    He was raised in the East Bay region of Hayward, Calif.

    Once again, Mark’s MO appears to be surrounding himself with former Raiders and locals, and fans of, and we’ll probably see Williams drafted for the same reason. Really bad way of putting together a staff, and drafting.

  • Dakota

    I can’t image why he would be interested in the raiders after watching the donks kick our tails for three years…..must be his inner raider fan and family pressure coming through for us.

  • GG
  • GG

    So…

    Del Rio HC
    Koetter OC
    Smith DC

    ??

  • Dakota

    That would be incredible compared to what we are used to.

  • Mr Football

    Yep its going to be a long time until the Lakers get out of the cellar. Shame on how badly they suck now.

  • GG

    Mark will no doubt fvck it up by coming to the interview disheveled in that white wrinkly top with the smell of Bonnie Rotten’s pvssy still permeating thru it.

  • RaiderDebo

    You’re going to be very disappointed. Cincy is gonna win big.

  • Mr Football

    Decent and definately upgrades over current.

  • Dakota

    With pustules ringing his lips where he, well, you know.

  • GG

    Good bye, Tony.

    Hey Charlie.

  • GG
  • new post!!!

  • HC search seems going in the right direction, but there is no amount of coaching that can offset 52-0 and 47-17.
    It all comes down to how we do in player acquisitions and if Carr can go from 30th in the NFL in passing into the early 20’s at least.

  • Charlie

    Of course I support whoever will be the HC in Oakland.
    The only guy I did not like was Lance. Bright football mind but far too immature with a lack of NFL experience.
    Del Rio is a good guy. Problem is like all the others that are on our list of NFL experienced HC’s,he got fired when his talent deteriorated in Jacksonville.
    The common theme I keep stressing is talent. We have had exactly ONE OFFSEASON where we were on somewhat equaal footing with the rest of the NFL.
    RM’s TWO drafts have been solid. RM does not control who becomes a FA nor will we throw away money on a long term deal for a questionable guy. i.e. We would gladly take Suh for the league minimum on a one year deal because his character issues become much less of a risk if they appear in Oakland. Will we bring a guy like him on with big guarnteed money??? Very Doubtful.
    Extreme example used to make a point.
    That is why we are building through the draft and that approach takes years.
    It is also why I support it. We will not continue down the same path from 2003-2011 that led to our demise. I for one am glad we are finallynot making the same mistakes over and over and over expecting different results.

  • Charlie

    Player acquisitions for the next TWO years.
    We have far too many holes for one offeseason worth of work.
    From everything I see Carr is on the right progression. His progression will in large part be determined by the player acquisitions I mention earlier.
    See Dallas and Zach Martin and the other first rounders on the Oline. Building the Oline not only protects Carr but it will give him a running game.
    Yea a WR playmaker would be nice but I see no one in the draft that is worth our first ronuder. First pick Dline second pick oline BPA after that.

  • masterblaster

    Looks like wiz will be leaving so we really need new center and guard and right tackle. Watson is a bust and “sick bay cowboy” Kalif barnes is a yellow flag on every other play Howard moved to guard and he is mediocre We need at least three O linemen either in the draft of draft free agency. This is one spot on the team that you cant just keep plugging in has beens and unprovens. They need to work as a unit and ours does not. The Run Blocking is hilarious at best.

  • masterblaster

    Del Rio when he was a JAG HC did ok with what he was given. A team comprised of Brunel and his Holly Roller followers who had Tom Coughlin removed by the owner who also was a member of Brunnels Holy Roller Bible thumpers.

    Jack had to just do what he could under the circumstances and once bosellie became injury prone thier O nosedived. Brunell was always a choker in big games. Weaver always sticking his nose in behind the coaches back.

    I actually give him credit for actually doing what he did without having real say so on team players draft starting positions.

    But I do not like the fact that he was a yes man to the owner in every way. We need a guy like TOM THE CABLE GUY! Not saying him as he is already interviewing elsewhere but a take no sheit guy that will but heads with the two clowns above him

  • masterblaster

    Lets talk Tony as HC. Who will he bring in as OC and DC?

  • masterblaster

    he is a chick

    Crappy calls for days.
