Saunders is Raiders’ OC

UPDATE: No confirmation from the Raiders, but beat writer Steve Corkran reports sources familiar with the situation say Al Saunders has been hired as the Raiders’ offensive coordinator.

Al Saunders will be the Raiders’ offensive coordinator under Hue Jackson, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Saunders interviewed with Jackson on Wednesday and was considered a favorite for the job, having worked with Jackson with the Baltimore Ravens and also having interviewed with Al Davis for the Raiders’ head coaching job on two occasions.

Saunders has been a play-calling coordinator in his previous stops with the Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Rams. Jackson said Tuesday he would call the plays this year and was looking to the coordinator to run offensive meetings when he was occupied with other areas of the team.

    I’m with ya Big Black D. We have a great 4-3 front with seymour in the mix. We need a little better play, or player @ SOLB. The run D issue is not players, it is play calling and scheam. Our cornners need to support the run better.

    We have a young HC, a great OC, great DL coach, so we need to continue to add good coaches to this staff. Moss or Perry will be good IMO. I also like us to add a good WRs coach, and a good OL coach.
