Patrick Graham is getting another chance to speak with an NFL team about their head coaching position.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Raiders defensive coordinator is getting a second interview with the Seattle Seahawks.

Following the conclusion of the 2023 NFL season, Seattle announced they removed Pete Carroll from the role of head coach, however, he remains with the organization as an advisor.

The team is also planning to speak with Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero, New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, Los Angeles Rams DC Raheem Morris and Dallas Cowboys DC Dan Quinn.

If Graham isn’t selected for Seattle’s opening, he’s expected to stay on Antonio Pierce’s staff in Las Vegas.

For the first time since 2002, the Raiders defense finished a season within the top 10 for points allowed per game with 19.5.

Graham joined the Raiders organization in 2022 along with former coaches Josh McDaniels and Mick Lombardi. However, he was able to keep his job when McDaniels, Lombardi, and former general manager Dave Ziegler were let go on Halloween. Since Week 9, Graham and his defense was able to hold opponents to just 16 points per game.

Before joining Las Vegas, he spent time with the New England Patriots, New York Giants and Miami Dolphins.
