Raiders hire Wylie as offensive line coach

The Associated Press

ALAMEDA – The Oakland Raiders have hired longtime assistant Bob Wylie as their new offensive line coach.

The team announced the move Monday, with head coach Hue Jackson calling Wylie a “spectacular teacher, motivator and drill sergeant.”

Wylie spent last season sharing offensive line coaching duties for the Denver Broncos. He has also been a line coach with Arizona, Tampa Bay and Chicago, while coaching tight ends for Cincinnati and the New York Jets. Wylie has coached seven offensive linemen who earned Pro Bowl berths.

Wylie is well versed in the power-blocking scheme, which the Raiders will be switching to after using more zone blocking under former head coach Tom Cable.

Oakland has already hired former Pro Bowl guard Steve Wisniewski as its assistant line coach.
