Raiders add new assistant coach to defensive staff

Updated March 3, 2023 - 7:27 am

INDIANAPOLIS — The Raiders are hiring Rob Leonard as their new defensive line coach.

Leonard coached the Ravens’ outside linebackers last season, but before that, he worked with Raiders defensive coordinator Patrick Graham during stops with the Dolphins and Giants.

Leonard’s move was revealed by Ravens coach John Harbaugh.

Leonard, who has coached 10 years in the NFL, replaces Frank Okam, who coached the Raiders’ defensive line for one season. He was fired by the Raiders two weeks ago.
