Well, the article says the Raiders are still denying it so this could be a little premature. But we did add two other coaches:

In other news, the Raiders added two more assistant coaches to their staff, making Paul Hackett their quarterbacks coach and hiring Dwaine Board to mentor the defensive line.

It's not official until the senile bastard with the jumpsuit and open sores says it's official.

It is on SI.com as well now. Let's hope we hire a decent Def. Coordinator. I'm looking forward to having someone other than Ryan calling the plays.

Im happy we signed John Marshall as our DC. He isnt afraid to bring the blitz, which is what we need. Hopefully we can find some decent pass rushers late in the draft.

post press conference with Al Davis

– Sounds like Davis has prevailed upon Cable to make some adjustments in his strict zone blocking scheme.


“I just felt his excellence in the offensive line was ever in doubt, did well with them, although it was a zone blocking scheme, which he’s talked about improving on, with some power, getting some power in there,” Davis said.
That could mean Cable’s offensive line hire doesn’t necessarily have to be schooled heavily in zone blocking, and it also opens the Raiders up in terms of the draft with offensive linemen of more girth than they currently employ.

Andre Smith is power and would be a beast RT.

Al also said he likes Mario Henderson, he was impressed with his play and it was his draft pick.

Gruden built the damn team, then Al trades him like the idiot he is.
