Moss, Perry Remain on Raiders' Radar

Ten days after winning Super Bowl XLV, here is an updated look at the state of the Packers' coaching staff.

Some quick-hitting Green Bay Packers coaching news:

-- Only one defensive coordinator job remains open, in Oakland, making it more likely – but not a certainty -- that the Packers' defensive staff will return intact.

Until a few days ago, there were three openings, but new Tennessee coach Mike Munchak hired Jerry Gray and Arizona hired Pittsburgh secondary coach Ray Horton. Packers safeties coach Darren Perry and inside linebackers coach Winston Moss had been linked to the Arizona job, and both names have been mentioned in Oakland. Perry coached the Raiders' secondary in 2007 and 2008 before joining the Packers in 2009; Moss played for the Raiders from 2001 through 2004 and interviewed to be the Raiders' head coach in 2009 but owner Al Davis decided to remove the "interim" tag from Tom Cable.

The Raiders could go with Chuck Bresnahan, who was hired last week as simply a defensive assistant. He was their coordinator when they won AFC West titles from 2000 through 2002.

-- The Packers' only coaching defection has been esteemed receivers coach Jimmy Robinson going to Dallas to be the Cowboys' receivers coach/assistant head coach. Quarterbacks coach Tom Clements was an option to be offensive coordinator in Cleveland, a source had told Packer Report, but new Browns coach Pat Shurmur said he will serve as the coordinator. All of the offensive coordinator openings around the league have been filled.

-- Coaching administrator Curtis Fuller is no longer listed on the coaching list at Packers.com. Fuller, 32, a former NFL safety, was assistant special teams coach in 2009 before being replaced by Chad Morton.
