Wylie expected to join coaching staff

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, January 30th, 2011 at 9:05 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    funny, you use THREE 100-yard games out of five to show we didn’t have one?

    Yet I said JC had the running game and good WR in Washington all those years. Didn’t do squat with them.
    Pro-Bowl LT too.

    Also, a good QB will open up the running game on any given day, just as Rodgers has done in Green Bay, and Rivers did for no-name Mike Tolbert.

    Why did the Patriots run for 100+ against the Steelers on Monday night? Brady.

  • DutchRaider77

    Kurt Warner was 2-8 his first year in AZ.
    Kurt Warner was 1-4 his second year in AZ.

    Matt Schaub was 4-7 his first year with the Texans.
    Matt Schaub was 6-5 his second year with the Texans.

    You might want to change these names out with different players…

  • J Hill

    Not impressed with the Oline coach.

  • alex7

    Dutch,

    Schaub is still on a bad team, doesn’t mean he can’t play the position.

    Guy completed 66% of his passes first year there. You could see they had a keeper, 1st time in the system was no excuse. Holds true for many quality QBs.

    Delhomme made the playoffs first year in Carolina.
    Orton put up monster #s first year in Denver.
    Cassell made the pro-bowl first year with Weiss.
    Romo showed his talents first year in Dallas.
    Bradford and Stafford proved legit 1st year in system.

  • alex7

    J Hill,

    isn’t it honestly amazing that Davis values coaches so little?

    Waufle gets excellent results in NYG, is brought back by Oakland, produces, and you would think Al would see the value both in money and wins that a good, proven coach brings to an organization.

    There you go compairing Aaron Rodgers and JC, Comapairing GB’s system to the Raider’s.

    I used ALL of Campbell’s losses to prove a point and did not pick and choose, that’s your cup of Tea

  • severeraiderz

    Schaub went from a west coast offense to a west coast offense….hardly a change. The only difference was the terminology. JC went from a vertical attack to a west coast offense to a vertical attack we have here.

  • J Hill

    Alex,

    Davis?

    Hue Jackson hired this Wiley guy.

    Maybe he’s here to assist Wiz on the technical points of coaching the Oline.

  • http://www.hotmail.com The Dirtee Raccoon

    Compare that to JC, who we get ECSTATIC about because he helped his team get to 8-8.

    *************************************

    I don’t think too mant of us are “ecstatic” abou JC being our QB.

    Not saying you are wrong, just those were two bad names to make your point. See you had plenty of better names to add to make your point.

    You are so right, and Coaching and the system have nothing to do with it.

    And when it comes to Jason, him helping improve the worst offense in the history of the Oaklandd Raiders does not count for jack. Let’s bring in Palmer, Henne, or maybe Alex Smith to improve this team. So what they couldn’t do it with their current team. So what Palmer played in the same system for several years and still couldn’t get the SB. So what he had two TOP Notch WR’s and still could win.

  • M Lonetree

    Raccoon,

    JaSoup won more games than he lost as a starter this past season. The final five games he played quite well as a matter of fact. Vastly improved over the beginning of the season. Got no problem here seeing what Soupman can bring to Hue Jack City.

    DutchRaider77,

    When the time comes, A7 will be arguing with Charon about the proper coinage to cross the Styx into Hades.
    It is what he does.

  • McRaider5150

    Jason Campbell is no Brady, Manning, Brees, or Rogers.

    But he’s no, Gradkowski, McCown, Walters, or JaMarcus either.

    He is more like a Brad Johnson or Trent Green.

    Ok, we got no choice either. I will be a happy man if JC plays like an all Pro, but I just don’t see it. It takes him too long to diagnose the D, and find his WR/TE/RB/FB. With Reece, McFaddy, Bush, Miller, and Ford C’mon man that is a QB’s dream!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Wylie can coach Veldheer and the Wiz can coach BCamp …

    I don’t see any of the other scrubs returning

    the “wildcards” would be Barnes, Walker, Henderson & Loper (2 of the 4 might stick)

    Gallery, Carlisle, Satele = toast. ZBS/Cable guys

    I see 4 new starters on the O-Line, Campbell being one of them (at RG or RT)

    Good Point, but notice how deep the routes are that our WRs run. As many have mentioned in the past, we do not run enough quick routes. No bubble screen, no hitches, no slants. we r un deep 15 yard curls and outs, our crossing patterns are even 12 or more yards.

  • http://www.hotmail.com The Dirtee Raccoon

    Summary: This is another team that gets a big bump up the Board, based on performance. As I wrote about Oakland midway through the season, its ability to get maximum value in “playing the draft” has been questionable, but what isn’t in question is the eye for talent. Rolando McClain was a starter at linebacker, and a pretty good one; Lamarr Houston is a solution in the middle of the defensive line; and Jared Veldheer got moved around to start the season but found a home right where he was in college, as an athletic left tackle who should only get better. Then they got a steal out of Jacoby Ford as icing on the cake. His pass-catching skills are far better than his draft profile indicated. Solid work.

    I know its not a proof of Wylie isnt worth the paper his contract is written on, but it surely shows a tendency..

    Tren did not become a really good QB until after he was 30 years old. Go llok at his stats. Did very good half a year in SL with a Great Offense, then went to KC and stunk it up his first year. his second year on was really good.

    Could Raiders be America’s team?

    As part of our Super Bowl coverage, ESPN.com has a three-way debate on what NFL team is truly America’s Team?

    Chad Millman supports the Steelers, Gene Wojciechowski supports the Packers and Tim MacMahon supports the Cowboys.

    As always, we need to make this an AFC West topic. Do you think any of the four teams in the division deserve to be in the conversation? The division has been down — the AFC West hasn’t been represented in the Super Bowl in eight years, which is the longest streak by any division in the NFL — but there is a lot of support for each team.

    If I had to nominate an AFC West team to be considered America’s Team, it would probably be Oakland. It seems to me the Raiders have fans from across the country. While it’s not great that Oakland rarely sells out at home, it seems there’s always a strong road contingent of Oakland fans.

    I’m sure you all have opinions. Fill the comment section below on your thoughts.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Agreed with Lonetree.

    VY should be used in the same sentence as Leinart, Quinn, Russell & A. Smith

  • OAKlifer

    Double R,

    I think if we can keep Gallery that would be a good move. He has made the move from T to G and could almost be a probowler if he applied him self. He was thought of more of a power blocking giant with a nasty streak coming out of college. ZBS imho was a bad fit for him I hope he comes back.

  • DutchRaider77

    @Rockstar
    VY: What do you think the Titans can get for him?
    You think he can turn it around? Vick 2.0, in the distance future?

  • alex7

    Geez McRaider,

    Palmer makes the playoffs twice in the tough AFC North, and you blame him for not winning and not making it to the Super Bowl. Some reach.

  • DMAC

    Why in the hell was Cassell in the pro bowl?
    He is not pro bowler.

  • alex7

    R8eray,

    The Steelers have become America’s team by becoming what the Raiders used to be: tough, nasty, penalized, intimidating, sacks galore, power running, deep passing, smart moves.

    Americans want to relate to those things.

  • McRaider5150

    He’s been in the league since 2003 dude and in the same system for most of that time. At what point to you start blaming him from not getting you were you need to go.

    In Washington, JC had to go against the Eagles, Giants, and Cowboys. I don’t see you giving him a pass???? Why Palmer???????

  • bcz24

    No bubble screen, no hitches, no slants. we r un deep 15 yard curls and outs, our crossing patterns are even 12 or more yards.
    **************
    Then why is JCs yardage per pass (not including YAC) the lowest in the NFL?

  • alex7

    Dmac, he put up great numbers in a weak division, and helped his team go from top-5 draft to the playoffs.

    But I agree that talent-wise, he’s definitely a notch below the guys at the Pro Bowl.

    I’m just impressed to see 27 Tds and 7 Int over a season when the kid is starting his THIRD season since HIGH SCHOOL!

    Bcz,

    remember JC one-hopping our WR on a screen? Good stuff.
    He missed high on slants to Ford and Chaz to open up the Jax game. Hit another WR on the knee in a crossing route that bounced up and gave Bush(?) or Reece(?) that long fluke reception on the carom vs the Seahawks.

    I think Hue knows JC’s weaknesses and calls plays accordingly.

  • alex7

    McRaider,

    Palmer = 2 playoff trips for a stingy owner.
    JC = 0 playoff trips with more talent.

    Redskins made the playoffs TWICE without JC in the years he was there.

    Yes, both in tough divisions. But you can see the difference right there.

  • alex7

    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.

    Really? I’m the only fan here that would be happy with my QBs “losing ways” producing 2 playoff trips in the last 6 years with one of the worst owners in sports?

    Ok.

    AND somehow JC’s 0 playoff games with a better team are being used as some argument for keeping him over Palmer, if Palmer were available. Weird.

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    Really? Is this what the whole off season will be about? The same 4-5 people bashing Jc day after day? Its like some of you are obsessed with him. Nobody takes a beating in here as much as JC.

    Satele, Carlisle, groves, huff & branch, DHB, murphy, Gradkowski ( especially Gradkowski) all played sub par football this season. But people want to focus on JC, who actually had a decent season all things considered.

    This is ridiculous.
