Raiders to interview Mornhinweg

The Sports Xchange

Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has received permission to interview for the head coaching vacancy with the Oakland Raiders.

Mornhinweg could be in demand, as reports also link him to the opening in Indianapolis created on Tuesday when Jim Caldwell was fired.

Mornhinweg's connection to the Colts is a longtime working relationship with newly appointed general manager Ryan Grigson.

Grigson was with the Eagles from 2003-2011, overlapping almost exactly with Mornhinweg's arrival in Philadelphia as assistant head coach. Mornhinweg was head coach of the Detroit Lions from 2001-02 but was fired after going 5-27.

He also has ties to the Bay Area and worked for the Packers in 1995 and '96, when Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie was a young scout in Green Bay.

After leaving the Packers, Mornhinweg was the offensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers from 1997-2000. He starred at Oak Grove High School in San Jose, Calif., before becoming a four-year starter at Montana.
