Jim Fassel has stepped up his campaign to become an NFL head coach again in the most interesting of ways.




Fassel

A team source tells ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that Fassel recently sent a handwritten letter to Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, expressing his respect and admiration for Davis and his desire to coach the embattled franchise.

Fassel last worked in the league as offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens from 2003 until his dismissal midway through the 2006 season. He was head coach of the New York Giants from 1997 until the team fired him after the 2003 season.

Fassel was 60-56-1 in seven seasons with the Giants and led the club to a Super Bowl XXXV appearance against Baltimore. He had two interviews with the Washington Redskins last offseason before owner Daniel Snyder ultimately decided to hire Jim Zorn as his coach.

Raiders owner Al Davis explains his reasons for firing coach Lane Kiffin in his September News Conference.

Lane Kiffin was fired by Davis on Sept. 30 after Oakland started 1-3, with the job going to offensive line coach Tom Cable on an interim basis. The Raiders are 1-4 under Cable. Kiffin, meanwhile, has filed a grievance against Davis in an attempt to collect the remaining money on his contract.

The upheaval within the coaching staff has yet to abate. Davis, it turns out, stripped offensive coordinator Greg Knapp of play-calling duties, a source told Mortensen. Cable said last week that he relieved Knapp of his duties before a Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers and would remain in that role for the rest of the season.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Seems there are more creative ways to kill a career. But if that's the way he wants to do it...

FFS, he could go coach college for two years.

This is like being a bottom for a bisexual, Haitian, heroin-addicted, hemophiliac in 1988.

The dude totally rejuvenated the great John Elway's career. Not only that...as head coach of the Giants he guaranteed the play-offs and wound up in the Super Bowl. He deserves far better than the fade.

Willing to suck up much??? Even senile Al ought to be able to figure this guy is less than honest...

I bet he sealed the deal by saying that the key to winning is to throw the ball long on every play.

I'm thinking he has a Doctor friend in Oakland that has access to Davis' medical records that indicate he's going to pass in X number of days. That's the ONLY scenario I can come up with for someone actually wanting to coach the Raiders.

Bullshit you have no job coaching you take a job where if you lose you are screwed and nobody blames you, or you win and everyone thinks wow if he can win there he can win anywhere. Look at Kiffen he is a hot ticket for no other reason than he was attached to USC in a limited role and he was the head coach of the Raiders where you can not win.

the fact that he showed some skill and a semblance of coaching acumen has nothing to do with it, eh?

Why not? The Raiders are the best coaching gig in the NFL. You stand on the sideline for 7 games, Al Davis fires you and then you collect the guaranteed part of your contract as you sit on a beach in Costa Rica. I'd do it.

Right! Al will see you in court! Kiffen is there and the Rat in Denver gave up

That's a tremendously big pile of wet elephant shit. The Rat didn't give up...he just said that he'd donate anything from the court case to the Oakland school district(s). In the meanwhile he's kicked the ever living shit out of the "football teams" that Davis has put in front of him.
