Report: Raiders To Conduct Interview With Mystery NCAA Coach

The Raiders are still looking for a defensive coordinator, but they’re moving on from Mike Smith – at least as it relates to their interviewing process.

According to Dianna Russini of NBC-4 (Washington D.C.), the Raiders had hoped to have a DC in place by the weekend, but will interview an unnamed college coach on Sunday.


With college recruiting in full swing, agents rarely share when a college coach interviews elsewhere.

During a segment this morning on 95.7 The Game, ESPN’s Adam Schefter described the Raiders’ DC search as “all over the place” but didn’t offer potential candidates.

It doesn’t appear anyone on the outside has a beat on where this is headed – and if any do, they’re obviously not talking.
