New Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio is aiming to put together an All-Star coaching staff for his first year with the team, and former Chicago Bears head coach and noted quarterback Marc Trestman might be his next target.
Here's NFL Network's Ian Rapoport with the report:
The #Raiders are slated to interview one of their top OC choices — ex-#Bears coach Marc Trestman — in the next day or so, per source.

Trestman's last offensive coordinator job? In 2002-03 with Oakland, when he helped build the Raiders offense into one of the most-feared units in the league during the team's Super Bowl run after the 2002 campaign.
He would later take the CFL's Montreal Alouettes to three-straight Grey Cup Championships, winning two-straight, before the Bears hired him as their head coach. The Bears finished 8-8 in 2013 with the 2nd-ranked total offense in the NFL, but a porous defense and reports of unrest led to a 5-11 season in 2014 and Trestman's ouster from the team.
