ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -Veteran pro player personnel evaluator Rich Snead rejoined the Oakland Raiders' front office on Monday.
Snead, who previously worked for the Raiders from 1990-93, replaces Michael Lombardi, who was fired earlier this month.
Snead spent the past nine years as director of player personnel with the Tennessee Titans. He originally joined that organization in 1994, when the team was in Houston. He also worked as a scout for the San Diego Chargers, in the USFL and as an assistant coach at Santa Ana College.
Lombardi's role in Oakland had been diminishing before he was fired. Lombardi spent the past eight seasons with the Raiders, dealing with personnel decisions and contract negotiations. The Raiders do not have a general manager because owner Al Davis handles most of those tasks.
