Packers assistant Moss has yet to be contracted by Raiders

Winston Moss says his four seasons with the Raiders were some of the best times of his 11-year career as an NFL linebacker.

And if Moss' old team calls, he'll listen.

The Green Bay Packers assistant head coach says he has not been contacted about the Raiders' head coaching vacancy as of Monday afternoon but would welcome the chance to talk to them.

"If the Raiders were to call and ask, I'll be ready to speak with them," said Moss, who also coaches the Packers' inside linebackers. "But nothing's changed from last week. I feel good where I'm at. If there's an opportunity that comes up in the future, we'll probably cross that bridge at that time. But at this present time, right now, not a lot to talk about."

Now that the Packers' season is over, thanks to Sunday's stunning 37-20 loss to the New York Giants, Moss and a few of his fellow Green Bay assistant coaches are free to speak to teams looking for coaches.

The Raiders also have interest in several members of the Green Bay staff after hiring Packers director of player personnel Reggie McKenzie as general manager last week. McKenzie created the vacancy by firing coach Hue Jackson. Moss, like McKenzie, also played for the Raiders from 1991-94.

"I think whatever I've taken from the past with the Raiders, and Al Davis not being there any more, you've got to say going forward that it's going to be different," Moss said. "it's going to be different from the standpoint of, Reggie wants to go in a new direction, so I'll sit down and speak with Reggie to get his vision, what direction he wants the organization to go in. That's going to play a lot in to it."

In addition to Moss, NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora has reported the Raiders have Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers and offensive coordinator Joe Philbinon their list of candidates. Many league observers also told La Canfora they believe secondary coach Darren Perry could end up as the next defensive coordinator in Oakland.

Philbin also interviewed for the head-coaching positions with the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins.
