Could a former player lead the team's defense as a coach? In this picture from 1993, then linebacker Winston Moss of the Los Angeles Raiders tackles Minnesota Vikings running back Charles Evans during a game at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Raiders won the game, 24-7.
Now that the Super Bowl is over, the Raiders can officially hire a defensive coordinator.
That is if the team is looking to raid the Green Bay coaching staff for the next leader of its defense.
Both men have connection to the Raiders, a trait that Mr. Davis seems to look for. Moss once played linebacker for the Raiders while Perry is a former assistant.
Both coaches have also received plenty of praise recently for coaching units that include All-Pro Charles Woodson and AJ Hawk and Clay Matthews.
The Raiders were prohibited from interviewing either Green Bay coach while the season was still in play.
