Here is how coach Jack Del Rio’s staff shapes up as opposed to the 2014 staff which began under Dennis Allen and finished under Tony Sparano.
It’s apparent Del Rio sold Mark Davis and Reggie McKenzie on the notion that reversing a trend which has seen the Raiders fail to have a winning record in 12 season would mean sweeping change. Only two assistants are still on staff _ defensive backs coach Marcus Robertson and offensive quality control coach Nick Holz.
(Note: Travis Smith, a defensive assistant last season, returns as a defensive quality control coach).
