The Oakland Raiders could be turning to a familiar face to fill the vacant defensive coordinator position.
Chuck Bresnahan, who was with the Raiders from 1998-2003, has drawn the attention of Al Davis.
The pair have already spoken according to the Oakland Tribune’s Jerry McDonald, but it’s unclear as to how serious the talks actually were.
Bresnahan originally joined the Raiders in 1998 as defensive backs coach and was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2000 where he served until 2003.
After departing the Raiders he spent four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. He most recently has served as the the defensive coordinator for the Florida Tuskers in the UFL.
Jacksonville Jaguars defensive line coach Joe Cullen is also rumored to be in the running for for the Raiders DC job.
There was speculation Tuesday that Cullen would be interviewing for the job in the coming weeks, but such speculation proved to be erroneous.
Although an interview is not scheduled as of yet, Cullen and Davis could still be speaking in the near future.
