Raye is latest coach to interview for 49ers' offensive coordinator job

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Jimmy Raye is the eighth candidate to interview with the San Francisco 49ers as their search for an offensive coordinator stretches into its fifth week.

Raye, 62, most recently was the New York Jets' running backs coach, but he has been an NFL assistant for 32 years, including a stint on the 49ers' staff in 1977. He has been an offensive coordinator seven times for six franchises, including 2004 and 2005 with the Oakland Raiders.

Raye had an interview one day after Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson received his second interview for the job that has been vacant since 49ers head coach Mike Singletary fired Mike Martz on Dec. 30.
