10 Candidates to Replace Greg Knapp as Oakland Raiders Offensive Coordinator

The Raider Nation’s long national nightmare is over. The Oakland Raiders announced that offensive coordinator Greg Knapp has been released along with three other coaches.

Head coach Dennis Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie now have to assemble of list of possible candidates to replace Knapp and actively try to interview as many as they can. Allen made it clear in his postseason press conference that he wouldn’t be tied to any scheme.

It seems more likely that Allen will be looking for a coach that will tailor the scheme to the offensive players which likely means an Air Coryell-inspired offense and power running game over a West Coast offense and the zone-blocking scheme.

Who might fit as an offensive coordinator in Oakland? Glad you asked…
