The discussion topic mostly consisted of the Raiders coaching situation but included other things as well.
Davis said that contrary to popular belief Dallas Cowboys assistant Sean Payton, who interviewed with the Raiders for a second time Monday, was been offered the job.
"I don't think Sean Payton has turned down the job because Sean Payton wasn't offered the job," Davis said.
"You people have assumed that he was the candidate. I just don't think that's fair. We never said it. … There is no timetable. When I hired Jon Gruden it was two days before the Super Bowl. … The thing is to try to be right."
Payton announced later yesterday that he would remain in Dallas.
Oakland will now likely consider New England defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel or offensive coordinator Charlie Weis. Both coaches are preparing their team for their February 1st Super Bowl matchup against the Carolina Panthers.
The Raiders fired Bill Callahan, who is now the University of Nebraska head coach, on Dec. 30. Two members of his staff since have taken jobs elsewhere.
