The Raiders, looking to fill their defensive coordinator position, have interviewed Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and former Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys defensive assistant Kris Richard, a person familiar with the process confirmed Friday.
Bradley, who helped build the Seahawks famed Legion of Boom defense as the defensive coordinator from 2009-2012, has been with the Chargers since 2017. In between the Seahawks and Chargers jobs, he served as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2013-2019.
Richard worked under Bradley as the Seahawks secondary coach from 2010-2012 and eventually served as defensive coordinator in Seattle from 2015-2017. He was the Cowboys secondary coach and defensive play-caller in 2018 and 2019.
In Dallas, Richard worked with Raiders interim defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, who is expected to remain on the Raiders’ staff upon the hiring of a permanent defensive coordinator.
