    Eagles Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg interviewed with the Oakland Raiders on Friday.

    Now that both Bay Area football teams seasons have come to an end, it's time for the front office of the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers to turn their attention to rebuilding.

    The first step for the Raiders return to excellence centers around the team's new general manager picking a head coach.

    And reports are that Reggie McKenzie may be looking at an ex-49ers coach to lead his team in 2012.

    Former 49ers offensive coordinator and current Philadelphia Eagles coach Marty Mornhinweg interviewed for the Raiders vacant head coaching position on Friday.

    The 49-year-old has head coaching experience in addition to offensive coordinators roles that he has played.

    Mornhinweg was the head coach of a disasterous Detroit Lions team in 2001 and 2002. He compiled a record of 5-27.

    The Raiders have also reportedly interviewed several other candidates for the position.
