The Las Vegas Raiders have added another name to their permanent head coach search.

On Saturday, reports indicated that the Raiders are interested in talking to San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans.

Ryans lead the 49ers defense to allow only 310 yards per game, third-fewest in the NFL alongside the ninth-fewest points per game allowed in the regular season with 21.5 points.

The 49ers are in this year’s NFC Championship game.

In addition to the Raiders opening, Ryans is expected to talk with the Minnesota Vikings regarding their open position.
