Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles has interviewed with three teams about head coaching jobs this month and a fourth team is now interested in speaking with him.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Raiders have requested an interview with Bowles. He’s already met with the Jaguars, Bears, and Vikings, but is not among the candidates who have been brought back for a second interview in Jacksonville and Chicago.

The Raiders are also interviewing General Manager candidates and they have not made any call about bringing back interim head coach Rich Bisaccia. Patriots inside linebackers coach Jerod Mayo has also been identified as a candidate for the job.

Bowles wrapped up his third season with the Buccaneers with Sunday’s loss to the Rams. He has four years of head coaching experience with the Jets, but finished that run with a 24-40 record.

UPDATE 2:44 p.m. ET: Schefter added that the interview is set for Thursday in Las Vegas.

  1. Bowles? Please no. Did you see how well his D did at the end of the Ram game? Does he not know who Cooper Kupp is?

  2. Cover Zero when you have a weak secondary and you are facing Cooper Kupp……. Please NO! Stay your tail in Tampa!

  3. Who is leading this process? Is Mark Davis just pulling names out of a hat? I’m curious who or what is coming up with these candidates.

  4. Keep Bisaccia. At least you can always tell he has a pulse, and he did a good job this year.

  5. Todd bowles, leslie Frazier, and the Raheem have all proven they are not head coach material

  6. Raiders are trying to fix something that isn’t broken. Keep Bisaccia and hire Eliot Wolf as GM.

  7. Bisaccia is a proven winner, good coach, and the players love him. There is no-one better out there to coach the Raiders. Why bring in a coach with losing records or unproven? Don’t fix it if it ain’t broken. Beef up the roster and let them win.

  8. Harbaugh is staying in Ann Arbor. Charles Woodson has stated the raiders will not be the one to take him from Michigan
