Could Martindale Be the Next D-Coordinator?

From: SF Chronicle

One assistant who could stay is Raiders linebackers coach Don Martindale, who multiple team sources are naming as the leading in-house candidate to replace Ryan. Martindale is out of a contract Tuesday and could follow Ryan to the Browns. However, Davis has always been big on Martindale and extended his deal two years ago to keep him from going to Stanford as a defensive coordinator. So, why would Davis even be looking for a defensive coordinator when a head coach isn’t in place? It isn’t unprecedented. In 2006, he hired offensive coordinator Tom Walsh before Art Shell was named coach.
