As the football-following world awaits word regarding the status of the Raiders’ coaching staff, Jason La Canfora of NFL.com reports that former Giants defensive line coach Mike Waufle will interview in Oakland for a “similar position.”
If by “similar” La Canfora means “same,” it could be bad news for current defensive line coach Dwaine Board, who joined the team in 2009.
Board played for the 49ers from 1979 through 1987, and he has worked as a coach with the 49ers (1990 through 2002) and the Seahawks (2003 through 2008).
Waufle served six seasons with the Giants. He spent the six seasons before that with the Raiders. Prior to joining the Raiders, he coached for 19 years at the college level.
