A press conference is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. this afternoon.
It will air on Comcast SportsNet California and will also be streamed LIVE right here.
The Raiders fired head coach Dennis Allen on Monday night, but have yet to announce an interim replacement.
Sources have confirmed to CSN Bay Area that the Raiders will choose between offensive line coach Tony Sparano and senior offensive assistant Al Saunders.
Owner Mark Davis prefers Saunders, and general manager Reggie McKenzie likes Sparano in that role.
A source told CSN reporter Fallon Smith that McKenzie will ultimately make the final call, but that Davis is pushing hard for Saunders.
The Raiders have a press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. on Tuesday. The announcement on an interim coach could be made then.
Sparano and Saunders have head coaching experience.
Sparano was 29-32 as Miami Dolphins head coach from 2008-11, and was New York Jets offensive coordinator in 2012 before joining the Raiders.
In addition to his duties on offensive line, he was the team’s assistant head coach under Allen.
Saunders is an NFL lifer. He has been coaching at the NFL level since 1983, including a three-year stint as San Diego Chargers head coach.
Ironically, he took over a team in-season, after Don Coryell resigned following a dismal start.
He’s been an offensive coordinator or assistant head coach or offensive consultant for most of his coaching career. He was the Raiders offensive coordinator in 2011 and has been in his current role since 2012.
