On Monday, it was reported that the Denver Broncos' defensive coordinator Dennis Allen and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy would be the candidates for the Oakland Raiders' vacant head coaching position. John Fox later confirmed that during his end-of-the-season media presser. It now appears that the coordinators won't need to travel for their interviews:

Allen and McCoy have both been connected to other head coaching positions this season. Mike McCoy reportedly interviewed for the Miami Dolphins' vacant position on Monday and had been connected with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Allen had been targeted by the St. Louis Rams, but that team went with Jeff Fisher, who had spurned the Dolphins.
McKenzie was hired in early January as the Raiders' general manager, the first the team had since Al Davis took over the duties decades ago. McKenzie came over the Green Bay Packers where he was the director of football operations. While many expect Winston Moss, a Green Bay Packers assistant coach, to be the frontrunner for the position, he has not yet been contacted about the position yet.
