Raiders Coaching Search Hits New Low

The Raiders search for a new coach hit an all-time low as James Caan turned down the position. Al Davis became enthralled with Caan after catching his performance as Coach Sam Winters in The Program. An embarrassed Caan had to explain to Davis that it was only a movie role.

"I don't care if it was just a movie, I liked the cut of his jib," Davis said. "I saw enough in that movie to know that Caan could really coach in this league and restore the greatness of the Raiders."

Other candidates for the job now include Hayden Fox and Bud Kilmer. (But if Davis wanted a real young hot shot, he'd go for Lance Harbor... after he graduated.)

I'm not sure about Hayden Fox, but I'd give my vote to Coach Nickerson.

I was thinking ESPN's Sean Salisbury

Hayden Fox would be a great hire, only if he can bring Luther and Dauber with him as a part of his staff.

You would think Dauber and Luther would be a given, but you know how Al loves to pick the assistants.

I hear Dennis Green is available

Even he won't interview with the team.

The Rock showed an ability to turn around the lives of a bunch of misfits in that recent movie that no one saw. Who's going to forward the DVD to Davis?

I think Parcells is angling to get the Raiders' job. His career has been spiraling ever since he left the Pats; coaching the Raiders is the natural next step.
