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.

Rumors have been swirling that Al Davis and Hue Jackson were eying two members of Green Bay's coaching staff to bring in as potential defensive coordinators.

Reports have the Raiders interested in interviewing Packers' secondary coach Darren Perry and linebackers coach Winston Moss.

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.
