It’s annual tradition for the Oakland Raiders to be searching for coaches this time of year. We’ve gotten accustomed to it during the last decade. However it’s not officially a coaching search until the name Marc Trestman reappears.
The search is on!
Silver and Black Pride is among the outlets reporting that the Raiders have reached out to Trestman for the open offensive coordinator position. Of course Trestman was an OC in Oakland once upon a time in a very distant era in which the Raiders were Super Bowl participants. That’s seems like ages ago.
However it’s been another tradition in recent years for Trestman’s name to pop up whenever there is a job opening in Oakland. Over the years Trestman has been rumored to be in the running for positions as high as head coach of the Raiders.
Another rumor making the rounds on Trestman was that he was offered the Bears head coaching gig. Trestman himself has since shot down that rumor first started by former Cowboys coach Jimmie Johnson. So it would appear he is very much on the market still.
Over the weekend the first name in Oakland’s offensive coordinator search trickled out. Mike Martz interviewed and now apparently so too has Trestman. So the search is officially on. As more teams see their season end more names will no doubt surface.
