Raiders Ask Bears Permission to Speak to Mike Tice About Coaching Job

The Chicago Tribune reports that the Raiders want to chat with recently Bears OC Mike Tice about their head coaching job.

According to a club and NFL sources, the Raiders have requested permission to interview recently promoted offensive coordinator Mike Tice for their head coaching position. In accordance with NFL rules, the Bears must grant permission, unlike the move they made Monday when they blocked secondary coach Jon Hoke from interviewing with the Vikings for their defensive coordinator position.

Tice served as the head coach of the Vikings from the end of the 2001 season to 2005, compiling a 33-34 record including the postseason. The Raiders have already interviewed former Dolphins interim coach Todd Bowles. McKenzie is expected to interview Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, Broncos coordinators Mike McCoy (offense) and Dennis Allen (defense) and Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, defensive coordinator Dom Capers and linebackers coach Winston Moss also have been mentioned as possible candidates.
