Raiders Rumors: Jack Del Rio interviews for coaching job, Sparano remains a candidate

The Oakland Raiders interviewed former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach and current Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio on Saturday for their vacant head coaching position, per a source cited by the Associated Press.

According to the AP report, "a person with knowledge of the interview said the Raiders met with Del Rio as they seek a full-time coach. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not releasing details on interviews. The interview was first reported by the Denver Post."

Del Rio coached the Jaguars to a 68-71 record in nine seasons on the job, including playoff apperances in 2005 and 2007. He was fired with five games remaining in the 2011 season, and has served as the Broncos' defensive coordinator since 2012.

Interim head coach Tony Sparano remains a candidate at this juncture as well after leading Oakland to victories in its last three home games. In addition, the Raiders have already interviewed Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Seattle Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell, per multiple sources.
