The Raiders are looking for a new coach and general manager. They’re currently focusing solely on filling one of those positions.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, the Raiders have not interviewed any coaching candidates this week.

The PFT coach/G.M. tracker only shows interviews and requests for the G.M. position.

The players want interim coach Antonio Pierce to take the job. Maxx Crosby, a defensive end, plans to request a trade if Pierce does not receive it.

Some think it eventually will be Mike Vrabel, given his ties to prospective part owner Tom Brady. Others think Jim Harbaugh could be in play. For now, it seems that Raiders owner Mark Davis is looking only at filling the G.M. job.

Does that mean the G.M. will hire the coach? At a minimum, it suggests the G.M. will have plenty of power and influence over the process of hiring the next coach.
