SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Jimmy Raye is the eighth candidate to
interview with the San Francisco 49ers as their search for an offensive coordinator stretches into its fifth week.

The 62-year-old Raye most recently was the New York Jets' running backs coach, but has been an NFL assistant for 32 years, including a stint on the 49ers' staff in 1977. He has been an offensive coordinator seven times for six franchises, including 2004-05 with the Oakland Raiders.

Raye got an interview one day after Baltimore quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson got his second interview for the job that's been vacant since coach Mike Singletary fired Mike Martz on Dec. 30.
