Oakland Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo will interview with San Jose State, according to Pete Rousell of Coachingsearch.com.
DeFilippo was the Spartans' quarterbacks coach in 2010-11 and the offensive coordinator last year before joining the Raiders staff. He had previously served as the Raiders' quarterbacks coach in 2007-08.
DeFilippo would be a familiar face for most of San Jose State's players. He played a role in recruiting quarterback David Fales, who has set several school records this season during his first year with the Spartans.
He was asked on Thursday by this newspaper if he had interest in San Jose State's opening, which became vacant when Mike MacIntyre left for Colorado.
"First of all, let me say I couldn't be happier for Mike MacIntyre and his family," DeFilippo said Thursday. "Mike did an unbelievable job at San Jose State. I love the place. It's a great place. My effort, 100 percent is on the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend and getting Carson (Palmer), Matt (Leinart) and Terrelle (Pryor) ready to go to 100 percent of their ability."
DeFilippo is the second reported interview for the job. along with University of San Diego coach Ron Caragher, who confirmed his interview to the U-T San Diego. SJSU defensive coordinator and interim head coach Kent Baer has also expressed interest in the job. It's unclear if he has interviewed yet.
