Packers Assistants Out; Raiders Will Hire Dennis Allen
The Oakland Raiders interviewed Green Bay Packers assistant head coach Winston Moss and defensive coordinator Dom Capers for their open head coaching vacancy, but it doesn’t look like either of them will get the job.
The Raiders are in negotiations with Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen. Unless those negotiations break down, and there’s no reason to expect they will, the Packers will likely keep two valuable members of their coaching staff.
The one wild card in the mix remains the Miami Dolphins, who hired former offensive coordinator Joe Philbin to be their head coach. While Capers won’t be going anywhere, Philbin or another team looking to fill their staff could hire Moss to be their defensive coordinator.
Other Packers coaches that may get consideration around the league for promotions are safeties coach Darren Perry, cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt and receivers coach Edgar Bennett.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
