On the same day that a vacancy opened with a franchise now run by Ryan Grigson, a man who has spent several years working with Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, the former Lions coach’s name has arisen in connection with another head-coaching job.
The Raiders have requested permission to interview Mornhinweg, according to Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network.
Mornhinweg becomes the seventh candidate for job that was, per reports originating elsewhere, supposed to have only three or four candidates — and that was supposed to be resolved via a “quick decision.”
Instead, the process has bogged down. The reported candidates are Mornhinweg, Dolphins interim head coach Todd Bowles, Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen, Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, Packers assistant head coach/inside linebackers Winston Moss, and Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers.
That’s a few more than three or four. And that’s not the kind of situation that will lead to a quick decision.
