Default Green to Oakland?

In the latest sign Al Davis might finally be ready to break with the past and hire a sideline boss with previous NFL head coaching experience, ESPN.com has learned the Oakland Raiders owner will meet with Dennis Green early this week, likely on Monday.


The former Minnesota Vikings head coach, now an ESPN studio analyst, interviewed for the Washington Redskins' vacancy on Friday and Saturday. He also met with Arizona Cardinals officials last Wednesday about their head coaching position.


Green will be the second potential candidate with previous NFL head coaching tenure to interview with Davis. The Raiders owner visited with Chiefs offensive coordinator Al Saunders, head coach in San Diego 1986-88, in Kansas City on Friday afternoon.


Only once has Davis ever hired a coach with previous NFL experience. That was in 1997, when he brought in Joe Bugel, who had been a head coach in Arizona 1990-93. He was fired by Davis after one season and a 4-12 record. The current opening was created last week when the Raiders fired Bill Callahan after just two seasons.


Traditionally, Davis hires former NFL coordinators or position coaches. The perception is that Davis does not want a head coach who might become too powerful or who might debunk the owner's suggestions.


But given the Raiders' current situation, with the franchise perhaps at a crossroads, Davis might find experience a coveted commodity.


As first reported by ESPN.com last Thursday night, senior assistant Bruce Allen, who handles most of the contract negotiations in Oakland and also managed the Raiders' cap, has interviewed for the Tampa Bay general manager position. Should he land the Buccaneers job, Allen could take Raiders standout personnel scout Mike Lombardi with him.


Coupled with the mid-season retirement of longtime Davis confidant Al LoCasale, and the dismissal of Callahan, the football operation could be in a significant state of flux.


Davis has flirted with the notion of hiring Green in the past. The two talk frequently and, as Green once noted, "have danced the [mating] dance a lot in the past." The relationship dates back to Green's stint as Stanford's head coach.


Green, 54, posted a record of 101-70 with the Vikings and took the team to the playoffs eight times in 10 seasons (1992-2001) with the club

Green coudn't keep Moss under control, he's going to have an even harder time with a team full of attitudes, punks and problems. He won't last 2 seasons, if he gets the job. And something about seeing him in the silver and black just feels wrong.

I think people sell Green short. He went to the playoffs 8 out of 10 times with numerous QB changes. He also went to 2 NFC title games which is a lot more than any other canidate out there (save Fassel) has done.

I agree with what you just said, and to top it off, woodson, wheatley have been sad and disappointing and the raiders need to fix the qb situation. Green could come in and fix this program, hell he can't do anyworse with them then they did this year.

It has also been reported that Green wants a dual coach/GM role. Can you see Al Davis giving up some power to Green?

no way the idiot Davis would give up any power......Green is an underrated coach, but this situation would not be a good fit for him.....they will go with a coach that Davis can have absolute control over.....a young assistant wanting a head coaches job.....Green will end up in Atlanta, i believe.....
