The thing that kills me is Norv was available and even wanted to come here when we made this hire. One of the best OC of all time and we passed for this guy.

We're in a no win situation too. If Norv does better (and he will) we shot ourselves in the foot by passing on him. If he does better than Norv then he'll get hired as a HC somewhere.

He's with the browns, he has a RB and a LT. After that it's all downhill from there. If the Browns offense is better than ours this season is a complete fail.

Norv turned the Raiders down flat out.

Quote:
Olson interviewed with the Raiders along with Marc Trestman and Mike Martz. Reggie McKenzie also said they asked Norv Turner about his interest in the job and he turned it down, opting to take the same position with the Browns. The Bears eventually hired Trestman as their head coach. That left just Martz and Olson and since neither had been offered the job as of last week, the thinking was they would continue seeking interviews.


Quote:
#Raiders McKenzie says he talked to Norv Turner about OC spot early in process, but Norv said he was not interested (per Paul Gutierrez twitter)

Its disappointing if Martz and Olson were the only true options for the Raiders. Dennis Allen pretty much put his job on the line with this Olson hire. I can't see him surviving another 4-12 season.
