The San Jose State Spartans are searching for their next head coach after the departure of Mike MacIntyre for Colorado.

Coaching Search.com is reporting that Raiders quarterback coach John DeFilippo will interview for the Spartans head coaching position. He was the Spartans quarterback coach in 2010- 2011 and offensive coordinator in 2011-2012 before signing with the Raiders.

DeFilippo said the interview will in no way distract him from his task at hand helping the Oakland Raiders finish their season.

"Mike (MacIntyre) did an unbelievable job at San Jose State," said DeFilippo. "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."

San Jose State defensive coordinator and interim coach Kent Baer has also expressed interest in the job.
