Raiders add another assistant to coaching staff

Updated February 17, 2022 - 10:46 pm

The Raiders are hiring Frank Okam as their defensive line coach.

Okam played for four teams in a six-year NFL career and has been coaching since 2014. In his most recent stint, he was the Carolina Panthers’ defensive line coach, first as an assistant in 2020 and then taking over the position in 2021.

The Panthers’ defense had 39 sacks last season, tied for 15th in the NFL.

Okam, 36, replaces Rod Marinelli, who coached the Raiders’ defensive line the past two seasons.
