Despite a report from Pro Football Talk.com about the potential that Falcons receivers coach Terry Robiskie is a candidate for the vacant Oakland Raiders head coaching position, a report by Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee indicates there isn’t “anything to the speculation.”
Pro Football Talk.com cites FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer as the source of its report. Per that report, Robiskie has already begun lining up a staff of potential assistant coaches. Jones has cited the AJC and the Raiders themselves as his sources. Robiskie has yet to interview for the position.
Robiskie is finishing up his first season with the Falcons. He has two previous stints as head coaching, serving as interim head coach for the Washington Redskins for the final three games of the 2000 season and the final five games for the Cleveland Browns in 2004. Prior to joining the Redskins in 1999, he spent seventeen seasons as an assistant with the Raiders.
