Oakland Raiders Head Coach Candidates: Winston Moss The Early Leader

The Oakland Raiders are in express mode to try and land their new head coach. General manager Reggie McKenzie already has the guy in mind to replace the departing Hue Jackson.

Look for Reggie McKenzie to bring in former #Raiders linebacker Winston Moss to replace the fired Hue Jackson as new head coach.

For the past five years, Moss has been up in Wisconsin as one of the assistant coaches for the Green Bay Packers. Moss has worked with the linebackers the past few years, particularly on the inside. He helped develop Nick Barnett into one of the team's most productive linebackers, developed Desmond Bishop into a Pro Bowl-caliber linebacker this season, and has also worked with guys like Brandon Chillar and A.J. Hawk to help make them solid producers in the middle of the defense.

It'd be an interesting hire. Moss has never been a head coach and has never coached at a level higher than linebacking coach. Can the Raiders get the solid results they're seeking?
