Mike Tice will not interview for the Oakland Raiders heading coaching vacancy, the team announced Monday evening.
This news comes as a surprise. While not considered a frontrunner, many assumed he would go through the interview process as others had.
This indicates that Tice will stay with the Bears, and they will neither need to hire a new coordinator, or put new father-to-be Jay Cutler through the process of working with a stranger at offensive coordinator.
