The Oakland Raiders have asked for permission to interview Denver Broncos coordinators Dennis Allen and Mike McCoy for their vacant head-coaching position, according to league sources.
The Raiders recently added Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers to their list of candidates to fill the opening created when the team fired Hue Jackson last week. New general manager Reggie McKenzie is also expected to consider Packers assistant head coach Winston Moss for the position.
Now that the season is over for both the Packers and Broncos, coaches from those teams can now interview with other organizations.
Miami Dolphins interim coach Todd Bowles interviewed with the Raiders last Friday.
McCoy has received interest around the league and was scheduled to interview with the Dolphins on Monday. The St. Louis Rams had previously considered Allen before hiring Jeff Fisher.
