Oakland Raiders Winston Moss

Moss Interviewed With Oakland, But Mornhinweg The Favorite

Winston Moss

It seemed like almost a foregone conclusion the Green Bay Packers would lose assistant head coach Winston Moss to the Oakland Raiders. That may not be the case anymore.

The Raiders, who are looking to replace Hue Jackson as head coach and recently hired former Packers director of pro personnel Reggie McKenzie as general manager, already interviewed Moss. The interview reportedly took place on January 14 after the Packers finished a walk-through in preparation for getting their asses handed to them by the New York Giants.

The Raiders will also interview Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice, but Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg appears to have emerged as the favorite. That’s good news for the Packers.

After losing offensive coordinator Joe Philbin to the Miami Dolphins, the team’s coaching staff could have virtually been emptied if both Philbin and Moss filled their new coaching staffs with Packers assistants.

    Raiders are in trouble if they hire Mornhinweg. I remember writers in the Milwaukee paper saying after he crashed and burned at the Lions that anyone who spent any time around him knew he didn’t have what it took to be a head coach.

    Mornhinweg is Marty McFly, the Elder, before Junior went back and changed time.

    Could you imagine introducing THAT guy to the black hole??

    You got the likes of Darth Raider and the guy with skulls for shoulder pads in front of you, and you’re like, “Hey, folks, here is your new head coach, your new leader- Marty McFly… ERR… Mornhinweg!”

    Okay, McFly senior was actually George McFly… give me a break.

    The 80’s were a long time ago and there has been a lot of booze and drugs since then.
