Let the Raiders-coaching-candidates rumor mill begin to grind.

According to a Tweet from ESPN's Chris Mortensen, new Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie will interview former Miami Dolphins interim coach Todd Bowles for the Raiders' head coaching job.

Bowles, a defensive coach who played safety for eight seasons in the NFL and replaced the fired Tony Sparano late in the season, has reportedly interviewed for the job in Miami and garnered interest from St. Louis after talking with Dallas last season. The Dolphins went 2-1 under Bowles, defeating Buffalo and the New York Jets and falling to New England.

Still, it is believed McKenzie has his sights set on a member of Green Bay's staff -- Winston Moss? Darren Perry? Joe Philbin? -- but they are busy until the Packers' Super Bowl run is complete.

The Raiders had not responded to a message seeking comment.
