ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders have hired Tony Sparano as an assistant head coach who will work with the offensive line.
Sparano comes to the Raiders after one season as offensive coordinator for the New York Jets, who had one of the NFL's worst offenses. The Jets ranked 30th of 32 teams in overall offense, and averaged 17.5 points per game.
The hiring was announced Wednesday by head coach Dennis Allen.
Sparano, who will be entering his 30th year coaching, was the head coach of the Miami Dolphins for four years before being fired.
