Brad Biggs, the Chicago Tribune reporter, is reporting today that The Oakland Raiders have requested to interview the Bears’ newly promoted offensive coordinator, Mike Tice.
According to a club and NFL sources, the Raiders have requested permission to interview Tice for their head coaching position. In accordance with NFL rules, the Bears must grant permission, unlike the move they made Monday when they blocked secondary coach Jon Hoke from interviewing with the Vikings for their defensive coordinator position. Tice did not reply to messages from the Tribune.
The news of Mike Tice being promoted to fill recently departed Mike Martz’ position was met with mixed reviews from Bears fans. I can only assume that if Tice in fact does interview with the Raiders and not land the head coaching position, it will not be all peaches and cream at Soldier Field next year for him.
