Raiders hire Pendergast as assistant

ALAMEDA – The Oakland Raiders have hired longtime NFL defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast as an assistant.

The team did not say what Pendergast’s role would be when announcing his hiring Monday. Pendergast was let go last month as defensive coordinator in Kansas City.

Pendergast had spent the previous five years as defensive coordinator in Arizona, helping the Cardinals make it to the Super Bowl a year ago. He had previously worked as an assistant with the Houston Oilers, Dallas and Cleveland.



Pendergast is the third assistant hired by the Raiders since the end of the season, joining offensive coordinator Hue Jackson and defensive line coach Mike Waufle.

The team still has not announced whether Tom Cable will return as head coach.
