Raiders make Waufle hiring official


The following press release was issued tonight by the Raiders:

The Oakland Raiders are pleased to announce that Mike Waufle will rejoin the Raiders as the Defensive Line Coach. Mike has an outstanding record of success as a defensive line coach and has participated in Super Bowls with the Raiders and Giants. New York’s Super Bowl victory over New England featured dominating defensive line play. Mike is thrilled with the opportunity to rejoin the Raiders. He and Coach Cable spent six years together at the University of California where they enjoyed working together.

So while they’ve yet to make it clear whether Cable will be the head coach, they at least brought him some company until Al Davis makes up his mind.
