The Raiders made the return of special teams coordinator Bobby April official Friday and released a list 14 assistant coaches that will be back in 2014.
General manager Reggie McKenzie said Thursday the club was finalizing an agreement with April.
Other than April, the Raiders coach staff under Dennis Allen will include quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, wide receivers coach Ted Gilmore, strength and conditioning coach John Greico, offensive quality control coach Justin Griffith, tight ends coach Mark Hutson, offensive coordinator Greg Olson, linebackers coach Bob Sanders, defensive quality control coach Eric Sanders, senior offensive assistant Al Saunders, running backs coach Kelly Skipper, offensive line coach/assistant head coach Tony Sparano, defensive coordinator Jason Tarver and defensive line coach Terrell Williams.
The Raiders are in the market for coaches in the defensive secondary, as Clayton Lopez and Johnnie Lynn are no longer on staff, nor is special teams assistant Keith Burns.
