The Oakland Raiders coaching search continues. They've been connected to a number of names, including both Denver Broncos coordinators and Philadelphia Eagles assistant coach Marty Mornhinweg, and now news comes down that the Raiders have requested permission to interview Mike Tice of the Chicago Bears.
Tice was previously the Bears offensive line coach before taking on the duties of offensive coordinator after Mike Martz retired. The Raiders need to formally request permission to interview Tice but the Bears can not deny that request because this would be a promotion for Tice.
Tice was previously a head coach with the Minnesota Vikings from 2001-2005 where he amassed a 32-33 record.
The Raiders coaching search started last week after they fired Hue Jackson. They reportedly have interest in both of the Broncos coordinators, Mike McCoy and Dennis Allen, as well as Mornhinweg. They've also been connected to two Packers coaches -- Winston Moss and Dom Capers.
