Oakland Raiders Coaching Search Adds a Disturbing Name

It won't come as any surprise that every employed by the Packers is a possible candidate in Oakland. This is the first rumor I've heard involve defensive coordinator Dom Capers though.

LaCanfora adds in print that he heard through a league source the plans of Capers' interview. Of all the people mentioned to date, Capers is my least favorite. He has had some tremendous success as a defensive coordinator, but he has a horrible track record as a head coach.

In eight seasons as a head coach Capers has had over a .500 record one time. The one time was in his second season as a coach in 1996 with the Panthers. That team ultimately lost to the Packers in the NFC Championship game.

Capers is one coach that doesn't need to be retread. I'd prefer someone young, energetic, hungry and raw over Capers. We'll see what happens. I'd be surprised if Capers winds up with this job.
