Mornhinweg: Interviewed in Oakland & left without offer

This was reported by Silver & Black Report:

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg interviewed with the Oakland Raiders on Friday for their head coach vacancy.

The former Detroit Lions’ coach talked to Reggie McKenzie and traveled back to the east coast without an offer. Joe Philbin is off the market agreeing to become the new coach in Miami, but that will not preclude the Silver & Black from talking to others.

McKenzie will conduct a few more interviews before he settles on his first coach.

Mornhinweg was speculated in Indianapolis, but SBReport.net has learned that the Colts have not reached out to the Eagles for permission to talk to their coordinator.

In two years as Detroit’s head-man, Mornhinweg compiled a 5-27 record. One event that highlighted his tenure was an overtime contest against the Bears, in which he elected to kick then to receive. The Bears scored on their first possession in sudden death extra time and the coach was ravaged in the media and by the fans.

Since, he’s been an important staffer on the Eagles, even at one point replacing Andy Reid from his play calling duties.

Depending on what happens this weekend, coordinators/staffers Perry Fewell (Giants) and Ed Donatell (49ers) could get a look from McKenzie.

I like that Mr. McKenzie is diligently searching for our next head coach. I believe that we won't have a coaching staff assembled until after the Super Bowl
