As per the Raiders’ official team website, Oakland named Bob Sanders LB Coach on January 25. Here are some details from the press release:
Oakland completed its coaching staff Friday, naming former NFL defensive coordinator Bob Sanders linebackers coach. Head Coach Dennis Allen made the announcement.
A 33-year veteran, Sanders’ addition gives the Raiders a staff with 438 combined overall coaching experience, 198 in the NFL. Sanders joins Jason Tarver and Allen as one of three individuals on staff with NFL defensive-coordinator experience. Meanwhile, three coaches on the offensive side (Greg Olson, Tony Sparano and Al Saunders) have been an NFL offensive coordinator. And, not counting Allen, two former NFL head coaches are now on Oakland’s staff: Saunders and Sparano.
Sanders has a strong reputation as a linebackers coach, in addition to his time coaching defensive line. He spent the last four seasons with Buffalo, having joined the Bills as defensive line coach (2009), then spent the next two seasons (2010-11) as outside linebackers coach, before taking over the entire linebacking unit in 2012.
