Oakland Raiders to interview Al Saunders - Inside Bay Area

More at Inside Bay Area: “The Raiders are making another run at Al Saunders. This time, it will be for the offensive coordinator vacancy created by the departure of Greg Knapp to the Seattle Seahawks.
Saunders was just fired by the St. Louis Rams as part of the purging of the Rams staff by new coach Steve Spagnulo. He is scheduled to interview with the Raiders as soon as today.
"We anticipate giving him an interview within the next day or two," Raiders senior executive John Herrera said Tuesday afternoon.
Raiders managing general partner Al Davis interviewed Saunders for the head coaching vacancy before he settled upon Art Shell. Saunders was hired by the Washington Redskins that season.
He returned this season to the Rams franchise that he helped reach the Super Bowl in the 2000 season. However, new coach Steve Spagnuolo already is interviewing prospective replacements for Saunders.
Saunders is regarded by many as one of the most innovative and gifted offensive coordinators in the NFL. One of his prized pupils, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner, came of age under Saunders with the Rams. Warner is set to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.”
