Tarver re-signed...so he's back as well as Abril on ST.  Glad we didn't lose Sparano.  Don't care for most of them except Tony, he's the lone bright spot on this coaching staff.  We shall see.  Full draft, $$$ to spend...RM and DA have no excuses this year.  Build the trenches.  BUILD THE TRENCHES! 

LET'S GET IT DONE RAIDERS

Amen to that Building the Trenches. Either Clowney or Matthews will be fine by me.

Raiders supposedly turn down offer to coach senior bowl
« Reply #736 on: January 02, 2014, 06:17:39 PM »
Supposedly the Raiders turned down an offer to coach the senior bowl.

If you are able to connect the dots I'd guess that it could have to do with no firm decision made on whether the coach will be back year 3.

Please Fire Dennis, Mark. He is garbage.

Great hire.

Sporano will be the perfect safety net for this team when he becomes interim head coach after Dennis Allen heads for another underachievers season (which i think he will)

I like the hire.  Surrounding Donkey Dennis with experienced coaches is a good thing.  Players love him and he runs a POWER system.  Some guys are great positional coaches, and I am hoping Tony does well.

Well, at least they seem to be hiring guys they actually want instead of whoever's left standing when everyone else is done.

What next, a 1st round pick who doesn't get injured / arrested or just plain suck?!?!

Greg Olson Bio
« Reply #713 on: January 19, 2013, 05:22:43 PM »
Greg Olson
BIOGRAPHY

Greg Olson was named assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach for the Jaguars on January 19, 2012. Olson has 25 years of coaching experience including 10 in the NFL and 15 at the collegiate level. His resume includes six seasons as an offensive coordinator in the NFL with Detroit (2005), St. Louis (2006-07) and Tampa Bay (2009-11).

Prior to joining the Jaguars Olson served four seasons with the Buccaneers including the last three as offensive coordinator. He spent the 2008 season as quarterbacks coach. Olson, 48, was responsible for the development of quarterback Josh Freeman, the 17th overall pick in the 2009 draft. Under Olson’s guidance Freeman threw for 8,898 yards and 51 touchdowns in his first three seasons as a starter. In 2011 Freeman ranked eighth in the NFL with a 62.8 completion percentage and 13th with 3,592 passing yards.

In Olson’s second season as offensive coordinator in 2010, Freeman ranked sixth in the NFL with a 95.9 passer rating while throwing for 3,451 yards, 25 touchdowns and only six interceptions, placing him ninth for touchdown-to-interception ratio in NFL single-season history. Olson helped guide the Buccaneers to one of their best offensive seasons in team history, setting franchise records for yards per play (5.61), average per rush (4.64 yards), average per pass play (7.21), passer rating (96.2) and fewest interceptions thrown (six). The Buccaneers also finished with the fourth-most points scored (341), third-most yards in total offense (5,362) and second-best third down percentage (42.2%) in a single season in team history.

The Buccaneers were the youngest team in the NFL in 2010 and wide receiver Mike Williams, a fourth-round draft pick, finished the year leading all rookie receivers in the league in every major receiving category while setting a single-season team record with 11 touchdown receptions. Running back LeGarrette Blount’s 1,007 rushing yards led all rookie running backs and he became just the second undrafted rookie running back in NFL history to finish with over 1,000 yards. It marked the first time since 1968 that a team had two different players lead all rookies in rushing and receiving yards.

Despite his late elevation to the coordinator position in 2009, Olson’s offense showed consistent growth around Freeman. The offense recorded three games of 400-plus yards of total offense, including 469 yards at Carolina for the fifth-best single-game performance in team history and the most by the team in over 20 years. Working closely with Olson, Freeman led all rookie quarterbacks in completion percentage (54.5) while setting Buccaneer rookie records for touchdown passes (10) and passing yards (1,855) despite starting in just nine games. He also threw the most touchdown passes by a rookie in a single game in team history as he became the second-youngest quarterback to win his first career start since 1970 with a 38-28 come-from-behind win over Green Bay in Week 9.

Kellen Winslow had the best season by a tight end in team history in 2009 as he led or tied for the team lead in receptions in 12 of the 16 games, and also led the team in receiving yards eight times. He led the team in receptions (77) and receiving yards (884), both good for single-season franchise records among tight ends. Winslow also led the team with five receiving touchdowns, tied for the fourth-most in a single season among Buccaneer tight ends.

In his first season in Tampa Bay in 2008, Olson was part of an offense that ranked 14th in the NFL and ninth in the NFC in total offense. In addition, the Buccaneers featured the 11th-ranked passing offense in the NFL as Tampa Bay signal callers passed for 3,788 yards. It marked the second-highest passing yardage total in team history while the 63.2 completion percentage ranked third in team history and the 83.8 passer rating by Olson’s unit was the fourth-best in team annals. The Buccaneers offense finished the season amassing 5,456 total yards, the highest total in team history, while scoring 361 points, the second-highest total in team annals. Under Olson’s tutelage, Jeff Garcia tied for second in the NFL for fewest interceptions (six), was ninth in the league and third in the NFC in completion percentage (64.9) and ninth in the NFL and fifth in the NFC in quarterback rating (90.2).

Prior to joining Tampa Bay Olson spent two seasons (2006-07) as offensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams. In his first year with the Rams in 2006 he helped guide a high-powered offense that ranked sixth in the NFL in total offense (360.4 yards per game) and a passing offense that ranked third (247.6) in the NFC.

Under Olson’s direction, the 2006 Rams became just the fourth team in NFL history to produce a 4,000-yard passer (Marc Bulger), a 1,500-yard rusher (Steven Jackson) and two 1,000-yard receivers (Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce). Bulger, Jackson and Holt were all selected to the Pro Bowl. Bulger also posted career-highs in passing yards (4,301), passing touchdowns (24) and passing attempts (588) and completions (370) while ranking second in the NFL in interception percentage (1.4%). Jackson also had a career-year in 2006, leading the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 2,334, and he led all NFL running backs with 90 receptions and was fifth in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,528.

Prior to his time with the Rams, Olson spent one season as quarterbacks coach (2004) and one season as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach (2005) for the Detroit Lions. In 2004 Olson took over play-calling duties for the Lions with three games remaining in the season and the Lions offense went on to average 403.6 total yards per game. In 2005 Olson was named offensive coordinator of the Lions in Week 11.

Olson entered the NFL as quarterbacks coach for the San Francisco 49ers in 2001 under head coach Steve Mariucci. In 2001 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia threw for a career-high 32 touchdown passes while posting a career-best 94.8 passer rating and 62.7 completion percentage. Following one season as tight ends/recruiting coordinator at Purdue, Olson spent one season as quarterbacks coach for the Chicago Bears in 2003.

From 1997-2000, as quarterbacks coach at Purdue, Olson played a key role in the development of Pro Bowl and Super Bowl-winning quarterback Drew Brees. Under Olson, Brees was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 1999 and 2000 while winning the Maxwell Award as the nation’s most outstanding player in 2000. He was also a finalist for the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s top quarterback in 1999 and 2000. Brees finished his collegiate career as the Big Ten and Purdue’s all-time leader in passing yardage (11,792), touchdown passes (90), total yards (12,693), comple­tion percentage (61.1%), completions (1,026) and attempts (1,678). He also ranked fourth in NCAA Division I-A history for total offense, completions and attempts upon his departure from Purdue. Under Olson, Brees had seven 400-yard passing games and 16 300-yard passing games. Brees earned Big Ten player of Year honors in 1998 and 2000 and All-Conference accolades for three straight years (1998-2000).

Olson began his coaching career in 1987 as a graduate assistant under the tutelage of head coaches Dennis Erickson (1987-88) and Mike Price (1989) at Washington State, where he earned his master’s degree in athletic administration. He spent four seasons (1990-93) as an assistant at Central Washington University and two seasons at Idaho (1994-96). At Central Washington Olson developed quarterback Jon Kitna, who went on to become an NFL starter at Seattle, Cincinnati and Detroit. Olson also served as wrestling coach for four seasons at Central Washington including the last two as head coach.

A native of Richland, Washington, Olson played quarterback at Spokane Falls Junior College from 1981-82 and at Central Washington from 1983-84, earning his bachelor’s degree in education. He and his wife, Lissa, have twins, Kenneth and Grayce. Lissa was the first female to be named head coach of a Division I track and field men’s track team when she took over at Purdue in March of 2001. She spent 2011 as an assistant track coach at the University of South Florida.

COACHING BACKGROUND: Washington State 1987-89, Central Washington 1990-93, Idaho 1994-96, Purdue 1997-2000, 2002, San Francisco 49ers 2001, Chicago Bears 2003, Detroit Lions 2004-05, St. Louis Rams 2006-07, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2008-11, Jacksonville Jaguars 2012.

I wanted Trestman.  Damn.  Oh well, good luck to him as the Bears HC.

So, let's get an OC in here.  Well, Chip Kelly went to the Eagles - TAKE HIS OLD OC FROM OREGON!  Talk about a potent offense.  Shake things up.  Get a high-powered young guy in here who wants to make a name for himself.  If we continue to dick around, wait 'til the last minute and get stuck with a terd like Mike Martz, I am going to flip out.

WELCOME BACK RANDY  :D

Are one of you Dan Guerrero?  Sorry Dan, the extension will be bought out.  Mike Martz? then we would lead the league in penalties and sacks.

Raiders Coaching Staff Interviews and News......
« Reply #703 on: January 14, 2013, 09:10:28 AM »
....here's what I found so far in regards to some of ourt coaching/team vacancies.

Mike Martz interviewed for OC on Saturday, 1/12.

They interviewed Juan Castillo, long-time Eagles offensive line coach and less-than-two-year defensive coordinator on Saturday as well for the open O-Line coach.

This weekend, Mark Davis was speaking with Ray Anderson, VP of NFL operations about an executive job on the Raiders.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/13/report-raiders-talking-to-ray-anderson/

Bringing Anderson would be an excellent move, IMO.  Brings instant credibility to our front office. 

And this is pretty interesting - Raiders interviewed Marc Trestman for OC yesterday.  Trestman was here with Gruden as our OC and was our OC in our SB run in 2002.  Details here:

http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/254048/report-raiders-interviewing-trestman-for-oc

Trestman is VERY intruiging to me.  He offense is high powered. I remember watching our team and feeling they could score on anyone.  He has been coaching in the CFL, leading Montreal to back-to-back Grey Cups.  He was interviewed by Cleveland as well before they hired Norv Turner.

Also interviewed Greg Olson, Jaguars Asst HC and QB coach.

For me personally, I want a high-octane OC that is MODERN - we have the weapons - DMC, Moore, Streater, DHB, Ford, Pryor.  We need someone in here who can put these pieces together. 

What are your thoughts?

Raiders 7-9 this year....10-6 the next year. Just being realistic. Trying to get behind this coach , can't imagine Chucky comming back to coach us to a SB win. That would be the shit!!!!!!

Some may say that this is all in the big scheme of moving the Raiders to LA....I think Mark is taking a step back and trying to run our team like a professional.  Davis moving more into an owner role.

I agree with you, Matty.  This is part of the plan for the restructure of the Raiders.
This team will be great again.  We have waited a long time but good things come to those who wait and there's no doubt about it, we have waited long enough!

Go Raiders!

So watching the Falcons game....they had a presentation with Ray Anderson, VP of NFL Operations.  This morning, I saw that Mark Davis is having discussions of bringing him in.  Some may say that this is all in the big scheme of moving the Raiders to LA....I think Mark is taking a step back and trying to run our team like a professional.  Davis moving more into an owner role.

Another zone blocking re-tread.  There is a reason Martz is jobless. 

Enough with these washed up hacks!

In other news, Hue Jax going to interview for OC of the Panthers.  That would a solid hire for them.  Meanwhile, we are playing with ourselves  >:(

One more year of Dennis Allen.  Until Reggie McKenzie gets the players he wants to win, he won't have a coach who can win.  Raiders will get #3 draft pick this year and probably another high pick next year.  If Allen wins with the current roster, it would be hard to dump him.  McKenzie is rebuilding.  Works out for Allen, he gets head coaching experience so he can be better prepared for his next gig.  Raiders don't pay much for a head coach while rebuilding and lets be honest.  What decent head coach would take the raider job with the recent history?  This is why Mora will be a great hire.  He wants back into the NFL but most teams won't give him a shot.  Look at the job he has done with the current UCLA quarterback.  He will be able to accommodate the gifts Pryor possesses or McKenzie doesn't know what the fuck he is doing

The argument that upsets me is when raider fans say "But we can't keep firing coaches year after year"

That's all good and well in terms of Al Davis, but Reggie hired the wrong guy. When we have another 4-12 season next year and have to fire Dennis Allen next offseason then I'm sure be waiting with anticipation for everyone who anticipated stability.

The Dennis Allen/Reggie McKenzie regime is/was bound to be a train wreck because there is not one offensive mind in that partnership. Reggie needs to hire a Offensive guru.

Can't stress how unexcited I have been for a raiders team. I'm still gonna come to games and tailgate with the badboys of bbq but after my last trip abroad this november I'm not gonna expect a whole lot of effort and fight in this raider dog when they're being coached by a preschooler.

Well said.

Well, Millernation claims that DA is just keeping the HC seat warm until next year  :o

Word is that Andy Reid is going to KC.  The Raiders better think long and hard about this open OC position and hire WISELY.  I am not too worried about Andy Reid, a good coach but he is a soft coach.  This is not a 2000-2004 Eagles squad with McNabb, Westbrook, Owens, Kearse, etc.  However, I am worried if SD gets the likes of a Gruden (God no!) or similar.   The point is though is that the division is getting better, and we better stay competitive.

Allen is and was simply not ready to be a HC.  He should have stayed a DC for a while.  You know my feelings on this staff.  I drank the kool-aid last off-season and believed these clowns would right the ship.  They failed.  As far as I am concerned, if you are unsuccessful - you need to go. The only saving grace - bloated salaries, dead weight, unproductive players, etc.  Next year, Allen has no excuse.  EITHER DOES MCKENZIE.

We just have to wait and see.
