Raye will interview for 49ers’ OC job

San Jose Mercury News blogger Dan Brown is reporting that Jimmy Raye is interviewing for the 49ers’ offensive coordinator position. Raye was the offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams in 1983 and 1984 and helped mold young running back Eric Dickerson. Dickerson set an NFL record with 2,105 rushing yards in 1984.

Raye, 62, is the second candidate with a multitude of experience to interview for the position. The 49ers also had talks with Dan Reeves. The 49ers had a second interview with Hue Jackson, 43, on Tuesday, but there have been reports that coach Mike Singletary would prefer a veteran presence on the sidelines.
