Are The Chances High That Marty Mornhinweg Leaves?

New, comments

In the past week we've heard Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's name tossed around as a possible head coach candidate for both the Raiders and the Colts job. This has led several fans here to assume that he's more or less gone. But, the reality of the situation right now doesn't seem to the support that.

For one, as Les Bowen reported yesterday, the Colts haven't asked the Eagles for permission to interview Marty and there doesn't seem to be any indication that they will right now. Speculation, rather than sources seem to have fueled that rumor. Pundits connected the dots from Ryan Grigson, a former Eagles front office guy, to Marty and before you knew it he practically had the job.

In Oakland, we know that he did in fact interview, but the Raiders have sought permission to interview as many as six candidates for that job... for now. So there's no reason at this point to believe Marty is a finalist or even among the favorites for that gig.

Now it is important to note that this is all fluid. The Colts could ask to speak Marty today. The Raiders could hire him tomorrow... But right now, there does not appear to be a strong indication that Marty is likely on his way out of here.
