Wylie expected to join coaching staff

Bob Wylie, who worked last year with the Denver Broncos, is expected to join the Raiders 2011 coaching staff under Hue Jackson as an offensive line coach, according to a league source.

Wylie is a veteran of 30 years of coaching and last was season was the assistant offensive line coach under Clancy Barone on the staff of Josh McDaniels. In the Broncos’ reorganization under John Fox, Barone was moved to tight ends coach with Dave Magazu coming in to coach the offensive line.

From 2007 through 2009, Wylie coached in the Canadian Football League, for the Winnepeg Blue Bombers in 2007 and 2008 and the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2009. The Montreal Gazette reported early this week the Roughriders were talking to Wylie about returning in 2011.

Wylie has coached primarily tight ends and the offensive line with the New York Jets (1990-91), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1992-95), Cincinnati Bengals (1997-98), Chicago Bears (1999-2003) and Arizona Cardinals (2004).

College stops included Brown (1980-82), Holy Cross (1983-84), Ohio (1985- 87), Colorado State (1988-89), Cincinnati 1996 and Syracuse (2005-06).

Steve Wisniewski, the Raiders’ former Pro Bowl guard, was hired this week as the offensive line assistant.

The Raiders are also to finalizing a deal with Chuck Bresnahan as their linebackers coach, according to a league source.

Darren Perry, the Green Bay safeties coach, is on Oakland’s radar as a possibility for defensive coordinator, and has also been reported as a potential candidate in Philadelphia. Although his name hasn’t come up this year from what I’ve heard, another natural would be Packers linebackers coach Winston Moss, who has interviewed as a head coaching candidate with the Raiders in the past.

Candidates from the Packers and Steelers are off limits until after the Super Bowl, although it’s not unusual for teams to gauge interest from agents for the prospective hires.

    Not sure were you get your stats from, but payton had the lowest yrds per completion.

    I quote “This season, the Raiders didn’t live up to the tradition of their deep ball aerial game. Campbell’s completions traveled just 5.76 yards in the air each, making the Raiders’ first non-losing season in several years very much like their last AFC championship run with Rick Gannon under center.”

    5.76 yards per catch without YAC

    Just because a player makes a probowl desnt mean that the team is any good. Samuals is a decent player, but is often injured, also the rest of the line was crap.

    Portis couldnt stay healthy, and is a locker room cancer, & notorious under achiever.

    Moss is clearly not the player he was in ny, and out side of moss, the foreskins have had a terrible wr group. Even worse than the group we have fielded.

    Cooly is good player, but you could argue that jc made him into a probowler by finding him in the passing game. This also points to the fact that jc didnt have many pass catching threats. when cooly and moss are your biggest weapons you dont have much.

    Some of these guys made the probowl as alternates, so they were not elite level players at all. Also this team has been in disarray since gibbs left. Stop trying to make the forskins out to be a good team. they sucked, end of story.

    It’s a great day to be a Raiders fan. Isn’t it?!

    Another QB to push JCampbell for the starter’s job??

    One of the great things about an Al Davis presser is that, get this…he actually speaks to the point, and he’s done that a few times regarding JC.

    Anyone who thinks the Old Man wants to rattle JC’s bones by bringing in a “big name” (regardless of stats, a la Carson Palmer)…hasn’t been paying too much attention. If the Raiders reach out for a name bigger than Bruce Gradkowski, JC will be under the gun all over again (but worse).

    JC is the undisputed man at QB for the Raiders…and his replacement, when the time comes, needs to be a younger guy who is brought along until he takes over by sheer force of play. If he’s not that young guy…the JC experiment will be an utter failure. And other close-but-no-cigar QB’s will continue to lead us to mediocrity until we hit the jackpot.

    McRaider,

    Washington had pro-bowlers in Portis, Santana Moss, Chris Cooley, and Chris Samuel. Also some on D.

    Want to name me 5 Cincy Pro-Bowlers?

    the Redskins made the playoffs twice while JC was there, but each time only after JC was either benched or out with injury.

    Washington had a top-15 D almost every year while JC was there.

    Cincy D? Hahahaha.

    Too easy.
    _________

    In 2008 he had 4
    RB – Clinton Portis
    RB – Mike Sellers
    TE – Chris Cooley
    OT – Chris Samuels
    Sorry, Moss was not voted in.

    TOP 15 Defense?? That’s your argument???

    Cincy was ranked 7th just last year. hahaha

    Can I get Manning or some other QB’s yards per catch without yac???

  • McRaider5150

    And who do those other Qb’s have at WR??

  • McRaider5150

    Interesting stats for yards after catch for QB’s. There are many QB’s that benefits from YAC.
