The Oakland Raiders have narrowed their coaching search to three and Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is not among them, according to CSNBayArea. The Associated Press has filed a similar report.

A person with knowledge of the situation said the Raiders are down to Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen, Green Bay assistant head coach Winston Moss and a "mystery candidate." ESPN says the team is negotiating with Allen to fill the job.

Mornhinweg and Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. are no longer in the running, according to the source. Former Vikings head coach Mike Tice, scheduled to interview today, will not be interviewed.

Moss, a former Raider who has ties with new general manager Reggie McKenzie, has been presumed to be the front-runner all along.

Scuttlebutt at the Senior Bowl still has Mornhinweg as a possibility in Indianapolis, although the Colts have not asked permission to talk to him. Owner Jim Irsay has said that the Colts are expected to have a coach in place by the end of the week.
