Has Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg emerged as one of the favorites to become the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders?
That seems to be the case from a variety of reports over the weekend following Mornhinweg's interview with new Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie on Friday. ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing multiple sources said Mornhinweg was "impressive" in the interview. The National Football Post's Dan Pompei said Mornhinweg is a "strong candidate."
Mornhinweg worked with McKenzie in Green Bay and was the quarterbacks coach when the Packers won the Super Bowl with Brett Favre.
The candidates are almost split evenly with those with an offensive background and those with a defensive background, but reports in the Bay Area suggest McKenzie and Mark Davis, Al's son, might be looking for an offensive coach. The presumed favorite had been Packers assistant head coach/linebackers coach Winston Moss.
