The Raiders have a new head coach. The team announced on Thursday that former Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio will man the sideline in Oakland.
Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio seemed to be a front-runner for a few good jobs in 2014 and that will be no different this year with five positions still vacant. Del Rio is set for a second interview with the Raiders.
Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis has brought in consultants like John Madden to sit in on interviews while he looks for his next head coach. Davis realizes he isn’t "an X’s and O’s guy."
Maurice Jones-Drew wants to return to the Oakland Raiders for his 10th season in the NFL. Does the team want him back? The former Jaguars star had a down year with the silver and black.
Maurice Jones-Drew might not be a Raider next season, but the veteran running back still is enthused by Oakland’s hiring of Jack Del Rio.
Any questions about who the Oakland Raiders lead back will be in 2015 were dashed Tuesday when new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said he wanted to tailor the running game to Latavius Murray’s skill set.
Mike Smith may not be out of work for long. The Oakland Raiders are expected to interview the former Falcons coach for their defensive coordinator opening, Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday night.
Bill Musgrave will be the Raiders’ new offensive coordinator. Musgrave comes to Oakland from the Philadelphia Eagles. Musgrave has ties to new head coach Jack Del Rio from their days in Jacksonville.
Former Jets and Browns coach Eric Mangini will be interviewing for the Raiders’ defensive coordinator position. Is a union with new head coach Jack Del Rio in Oakland a good fit?
Jack Del Rio’s last job included a Hall of Fame quarterback with a long list of achievements. But the new Raiders coach isn’t asking his new signal-caller, Derek Carr, to be Peyton Manning.
