With Hue Jackson out in Oakland, we’re left to wonder who the next head coach of the Raiders will be.

It sounds like Raiders G.M. Reggie McKenzie will gut the Raiders and pick a coach from the Packers staff with which he’s comfortable.

We’ve seen various reporters come up with various candidates, but they all mention the same favorite: Packers assistant head coach/inside linebackers Winston Moss.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentions Packers secondary coach Darren Perry, quarterback coach Tom Clements, tight ends coach Ben McAdoo as other options in Oakland. But Moss is viewed as the favorite.

Based on his long history with the Packers, McKenzie is surely rooting for Green Bay to keep winning and make it impossible to actually hire any of the Packers assistants for another month.
