Former Hewlett Packard Chief Mark Hurd is now reported to be in talks that could land him a high-level executive post with Oracle in Redwood Shores.

The Wall Street Journal quotes unnamed sources as saying Oracle founder Larry Ellison is interested in finding a spot for Hurd.

Hurd resigned from HP amid a sexual harassment investigation that uncovered unauthorized company expenditures by Hurd on the woman who made the allegations.

Oracle's Larry Ellison criticized HP's board of directors for letting Hurd go.
