Default Matindale winks at broncos

MARTINDALE WINKS AT THE BRONCOS
Posted by Mike Florio on January 20, 2009, 7:05 p.m.
Not long after Tom Don Martindale’s name landed on the coaching landscape with the same “who the f–k is he?” thud that met the arrival of names like Lane Kiffin and Tom Cable, it turns out that the Raiders’ linebackers coach won’t become the next head coach of the team.

Steve Corkran of the Oakland Tribune reports that Martindale is close to accepting a job with the Broncos.

Martindale has spent five seasons with Oakland.

their LBs and CBs are the only good part of their team, I like anything that makes a division rival weaker.

MOBILE, Ala. — Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels, with the help of defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, has filled out his defensive staff in recent days.

Wayne Nunnely, whose contract was not renewed by the San Diego Chargers, will coach the defensive line, Raiders assistant Don Martindale will coach linebackers and longtime NFL assistant Ed Donatell the defensive backs.

McDaniels could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

Martindale had interviewed with Raiders brass earlier this month after his contract expired — the Raiders routinely sign their people to one-year deals that must renewed — but the team publicly denied a report he had interviewed to be head coach.

Some in the league said Martindale had hoped to be the Raiders’ defensive coordinator.

Donatell served as a defensive coordinator with the Packers and Falcons earlier in his coaching career but spent this past season as the University of Washington’s defensive coordinator.

He is also a former Broncos assistant, having worked on Mike Shanahan’s staff during the team’s two Super Bowl wins during a 1995-99 stint.

Donatell endured one of the more difficult seasons in college football history in 2008. The Huskies defense finished 116th out of 119 Division I teams, leading to the firing of head coach Tyrone Willingham and all his assistants, including Donatell.

Donatell has also coached the secondary for the New York Jets.

With the flurry of hires McDaniels has made on the offensive side of the ball — adding offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and wide receivers coach Adam Gase and retaining offensive line coach Rick Dennison and running backs coach Bobby Turner from Shanahan’s staff — the Broncos staff is almost entirely in place.

If you were on the Faders and somebody threw you a rope, would you grab it?

He passes the eyeball test of a linebackers coach.

This is great news. He did a fantastic job coaching the Raiders LBers.

Special teams coach from KC, LB coach from Oakland and the Defensive Line coach from San Diego.

Interesting... kind of Obama esque.

Excellent hire. A lot of Raider fans I know on other forums wanted him as their DC. He's that good.

I like that coaches of division rivals are making lateral moves just to join our coaching staff. Granted Oakland is in the process of replacing Kiffin so it makes sense that his old staff would be looking for new jobs.

If I was staying on the Faiders, hell yes I would grab that rope! Then I would tie it around my neck and jump from the top deck so I hang outside Geezer Al's suite.
