The #Seahawks are expected to interview #Raiders RBs coach Kirby Wilson for their vacant OC job, source said. One of the most respected position coaches, Wilson last interviewed for an OC job in 2014. Now Seattle takes a look.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 20, 2021
According to the tweet, this is Wilson’s first interview for an offensive coordinator position since 2014. The 59 year old has spent time with seven teams during his NFL career, which dates all the way back to 1997. He was hired by the Raiders in February 2019 as their new running backs coach.
He’s only ever been a running backs coach in the NFL, having had that title with the Patriots, Washington Football Team, Buccaneers, Cardinals, Steelers, Vikings, Browns and now the Raiders.
Even going back to his days coaching in college, Wilson has never been an offensive coordinator at any level.
