Oakland Raiders interview Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio for coaching position

The Oakland Raiders interviewed Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio on Saturday for their head coaching vacancy, a person with knowledge of the interview told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Del Rio, a former USC standout who grew up in the Bay Area, previously was the Jacksonville Jaguars coach for nine seasons. He had a 68-71 regular-season record and made the playoffs in 2005 and 2007.

The Raiders also have interviewed Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Seattle Coach Pete Carroll told SiriusXM NFL Radio earlier this week that Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell also interviewed for the job.

Oakland is also reportedly interested in interviewing San Francisco assistant Eric Mangini and Indianapolis offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.


Doug Marrone, who last week opted out of his contract as Buffalo Bills coach, is the fourth confirmed candidate to interview for the New York Jets coaching position.

The team also interviewed Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn, Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and assistant head coach-offensive line coach Tom Cable. San Diego offensive coordinator Frank Reich is expected to meet with the team.

The Jets are also interested in Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles and Baltimore offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.
