Fassel replacement hired; Saunders on the move

Dennis Allen once again is sticking within the AFC, with particular interest within the AFC West, when it comes to hiring assistant coaches.
Allen hired Steve Hoffman as the special teams coordinator today. That fills the vacancy created by the departure of John Fassel to the St. Louis Rams.
In other news, Raiders offensive coordinator Al Saunders has interviewed with the Kansas City Chiefs for their offensive coordinator opening. That indicates that Allen has no intention of retaining Saunders in any capacity — he already hired Greg Knapp to be the offensive coordinator — or Saunders isn’t interested in coming back in a lesser role than the one he filled in 2011.

    they talk about how knapp is a good qb coach. he took a no name qb (yates) and they made it to the play-offs. i get the impression he may be grooming pryor(he is our back-up). knapp does know the west coast offense. i think he was limited his first round in oakland.

    the west coast offense is pretty much the same league round. it’s whether or not knapp can scheme and make adjustments during games .

    Len,

    That’s the point. We are so close, we can win our division, and now we are going to rebuild the entire team.
    I think the better choice would have been to keep the offense and the coaches (add a Few position coaches, etc..), and focus more and rebuild the defense.

    I understand your point of view, but I’d reserve judgment until we actually see what happens on the field.

    Ownership and management often times have a different view than the workers/fans.

    Hendu, # 52,

    look and postings 34, 37, 38. there are other postings under this article too.

    I am just sick and tired of all the new stadium talk; it’s not going to happen anytime soon, Hendu.

    Because big AL died and the stage is set (supposedly) for the reorganization, most seem to think a new stadium is in the works: ridiculous !

    hardline is a crack smoker- stadium sits in LA or Santa clara already without taxpayers-not to mention asia money may come to O town!

    —————————————–
    Speaking only for myself, I’ve not heard or read of any evidence that suggests a Stadium is “in the works”

    Only speculation, and what if’s.

    Mikeschoice, #56,

    Wrong Mike. Stadiums have been talked about in LA (I live in LA) and Santa Clara for years and years now, but you won’t see the Raiders moving anytime soon.

    Me a crack-smoker? never tried it. I don’t do drugs, nor do I drink.

    The 49′ers may get a new stadium in Santa Clara, but the club will need to win more divisions, and a Superbowl, before that happens.

    Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah: new stadium talk regarding the 49′ers and Raiders is cheap. I haven’t seen a ground breaking yet.

    i always thought our wr’s ran to long of routes. everyone knew this. our offense was predictable. defenses would always have safety help because our receivers would run deep paterns. every team goes deep. even west coast offenses throw deep. pose the threat with the shorter pass. then we hit-em deep.

    That’s right Len; you are a wise man.

    Gosh, wonder why Crennell is interviewing Saunders? Doesn’t he realize that Hue was the genius behind the Raiders’ offense?

    lol

    That’s funny.

    I wish I thought that was funny…It makes me sick.

    He did well with the whiners (that team was loaded), and he hasn’t done anything special after that. That was a decade ago.
    ==========================================

    Dude he is the Quarterback Coach on a team that has been ranked 3rd or 4th in the league in total offense for the last two years in a row. What you are thinking is he didn’t have anything to do with that success. You might want to rethink that.

    ============================================

    Ed Roski is putting the LA taxpayers up to build a stadium, and then he gets part or all of the franchise. Sure. So Roski himself gets part or all of a team for little or no investment. No one is going to fall for that. Unless he gets the shareholder list from Bernie Madoff.
