Many raised the question about who would want the Oakland Raiders coaching job. At least one qualified candidate other than Tom Cable has stepped forward.

Former Raiders assistant coach and current Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, brother of Ravens coach John Harbaugh, told the San Jose Mercury News that he would listen if Raiders owner Al Davis called.

“I talk to Mr. Davis now and then,” Harbaugh told the paper. “I love talking to him. I consider him a mentor, and it was always special every time he would pull me aside with the Raiders or call me on the phone. He’s the best. Nobody can talk football like Mr. Davis. Every time I talk to him, I always glean something about football.”

Then asked what he would do if Davis called to talk about the Raiders coaching job, Harbaugh said, “I’ll always take a call from Mr. Davis.”

So there’s one more candidate — a logical candidate — for the Raiders.
