Raiders | Jordan would like Shoop back

Bill Soliday, of MediaNews, reports Oakland Raiders RB LaMont Jordan would like new offensive coordinator John Shoop to remain with the team in the same capacity next season. Jordan feels Shoop serves as a better communicator than his predecessor Tom Walsh and puts players in the best position to make plays. "I know that Shoop has the guts to try new things,'' Jordan said. "I think Shoop is the type of coach where if you go to him (and) say, `Hey, I can do this, put me in a position to do this,' Shoop is the type of coach who's going to say, `Hey, you asked for it, there you go. Make it work.' As a player, you want a coach like that. You don't want a coach where you don't feel like you can talk to him. You don't want a coach where as a player you really have no input. I feel like that's how things were at the beginning of the season.''
