Raiders coach Jon Gruden added 13 assistants to his coaching staff, the team said Thursday.
Edgar Bennett, the Packers’ offensive coordinator the past three seasons, was named wide receivers coach for the Raiders. Mike Trgovac will also leave Green Bay to take over as defensive line coach in Oakland. Trgovac was the Packers’ defensive line coach from 2009 to 2017.
Gruden and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie have strong ties with the Packers after the two worked for the organization in the 1990s.
Tom Cable and Derrick Ansley were officially announced as coaches for the offensive line and defensive backs, respectively.
Cable was the Raiders’ interim coach in 2008 and took over as head coach for the 2009 and 2010 seasons. He spent the past seven seasons on the Seahawks’ coaching staff. Ansley is leaving the University of Alabama after two seasons for his first year as a coach in the NFL.
David Lippincott will lead the linebackers. He’s familiar with new Raiders defensive coordinator Paul Guenther from their days working together for the Bengals. Lippincott spent the past 10 seasons on the Bengals’ coaching staff.
Jemal Singleton will oversee the running backs and Frank Smith will guide the tight ends.
More coaches could be added at a later date, according to the team.
