Report: Raiders contacted Harbaugh

Posted · Add Comment

Add another name to the list of coaches who won’t be working for the Raiders next season.

Oakland reached out to Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh about becoming their next head coach, but Harbaugh was not interested, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.

This news comes as an interesting twist (but probably not by Raiders standards) since Tom Cable is still-as of the current moment-the head coach in Oakland.

In addition to Harbaugh, the team has reached out to CFL coach Marc Trestman. The Raiders are also reportedly interested in Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson as an offensive coordinator candidate. Jackson is scheduled to meet with the Raiders today.

It should come as no surprise that the Raiders are dominating the headlines regarding the coaching carousel yet again.

I guess that’s what happens when you lose 11 or more games seven years in a row.
