Tuesday, January 25th, 2011 at 2:03 pm in Oakland Raiders.
The following assistant coaches were removed from the Raiders’ coaching roster on the club Web site after being there earlier this morning:
Linebackers coach Mike Haluchak, quarterbacks coach Ted Tollner, quartebacks coach Paul Hackett, offensive line coach Jim Michalczik and assistant line coach Chris Morgan.
Al Saunders was added to the roster as offensive coordinator Monday.
Two names who have surfaced with regard to Oakland’s search for a defensive coordinator _ former Raiders defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan and Jacksonville defensive line coach Joe Cullen.
Bresnahan, most recently the defensive coordinator of the Florida Tuskers of the UFL, was was the Raiders defensive coordinator in the division title seasons from 2000 through 2002. He worked as Cincinnati defensive coordinator when Hue Jackson coached Bengals wide receivers. A source said Jackson has spoken with Bresnahan, although it’s not known how serious the level of interest is on either side.
According to the Twitter account of Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, “Joe Cullen to interview for Raiders DC job in the coming weeks.” Cullen has been a defensive line coach both in college and the NFL.
Note: Appears to be a rogue LaCanfora tweeter on the horizon. It crossed my Tweet deck this afternoon. My fault for picking it up somewhere other than his direct Twitter site.
Coaches who served under Tom Cable who are still listed include Greg Biekert (assistant coach on defense), Willie Brown (squad development), John Fassel (special teams coordinator), Adam Henry (tight ends), Sanjay Lal (wide receivers), Brad Roll (strength and conditioning), Kevin Ross (assistant coach), Kelly Skipper (running backs), Lionel Washington and Mike Waufle (defensive line).
