ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Raiders have interest in Stanford defensive coordinator Jason Tarver regarding the same role in Oakland.

Tarver is actually co-defensive coordinator at Stanford and also oversees the Cardinal’s inside linebackers. At Stanford, Tarver helped replace Vic Fangio, who left to join Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers staff in 2011. Ironically, the 37-year-old Tarver spent the previous decade working in the Niners’ organization as an outside linebackers coach and offensive assistant.

The Raiders have also shown interest in Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt Jr. for the defensive coordinator job vacated by Chuck Bresnahan’s expired contract.
