Yep, the guy partly responsible for the league's fourth-best offense (the Eagles averaged 399.1 yards per game this past season, trailing just the Saints, Packers and Patriots) is a candidate for head coaching vacancies in Oakland and Indianapolis.

Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg's name first popped up last week as a possible replacement for Jim Caldwell in Indy — and that was before Caldwell was fired. On Tuesday, Caldwell was officially given the axe by new GM Ryan Grigson, who has ties to Mornhinweg from their days together in Philly.

Now, Mornhinweg is being touted as a possible candidate in Oakland, after Hue Jackson was fired at the end of another disappointing season for the Raiders.

Mornhinweg's last stint as a head coach didn't go well. He was fired in 2002, after two dismal seasons in Detroit. The most notable act of his tenure was his decision to kick off in an eventual overtime loss.
