Interim coach Rich Bisaccia is in the mix to become the Las Vegas Raiders' permanent head coach, sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

The Raiders are set to interview Bisaccia on Wednesday for the full-time job, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

The 61-year-old led the club following Jon Gruden's midseason resignation, steering Las Vegas to the postseason.

Under Bisaccia, the Raiders rallied to win their final four games of the regular season to punch their ticket to the playoffs, though they were defeated by the Cincinnati Bengals in the wild-card round. It was only the Raiders' second playoff berth since 2003.

Players such as Derek Carr and Maxx Crosby have also vouched for Bisaccia. Crosby called Bisaccia "the best man for the job" Tuesday during an appearance on "The Rich Eisen Show."

Las Vegas has also reportedly requested an interview with New England Patriots assistant Jerod Mayo for the head coaching gig.

The Raiders enter the offseason looking to find a permanent head coach and new general manager after firing former GM Mike Mayock on Monday.
