Packers DC Capers on Raiders' list of candidates
By Jason La Canfora
The Oakland Raiders have extending their list of potential head-coaching candidates to Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers, according to a league source.
McKenzie, who was introduced by the Raiders on Tuesday, said he has a short list of candidates, but the offensive or defensive background of a coach will not influence the choice, and head-coaching experience isn't a prerequisite. He will give his head coach authority to hire his own staff.
Regardless, McKenzie is likely to be bringing more Packers personnel with him to Oakland. Teams are not permitted to interview Packers coaches until after their season ends.
