According to Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, the Raiders job is wide open to anyone who is deemed qualified to bring the Men In Black back to greatness. This is what he had to say:
According to league sources, Bowles was assured the Raiders job isn't earmarked for longtime Green Bay Packers assistant coach Winston Moss, whom many have linked to the job.
Bowles, whom the Dolphins would like to keep as defensive coordinator -- if not their head coach -- has strong ties to new Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie. The Raiders announced the dismissal of coach Hue Jackson on Tuesday, the same day they introduced McKenzie as their GM.
Bowles also is a candidate for the Minnesota Vikings' defensive coordinator position, according to sources. Dolphins players have told me they strongly support Bowles to be their coach.The Raiders also want to interview Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers and offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, according to sources. Philbin, like Bowles, has interviewed for the Miami job
Now, I'll be one of the first to say that I like Todd Bowles. I like the look in his eyes and I like his demeanor. He seems like he has the ability to bring swagger to whoever he is around. What does the Nation think?
