Report: Raiders Re-Hire Mike Waufle

Though the Raiders have yet to announce it, Adam Schefter is reporting the hiring of Mike Waufle as the new defensive line coach in the East Bay.

Waufle held the same position with the Raiders from 1998-2003 before spending the last five seasons with the New York Giants.  

While the hire has yet to be made official, it does raise a few questions. To begin with, one must wonder what this means to current D-line coach Dwaine Board. Will he be relieved of his duties or simply reassigned? Board came to the Raiders from Seattle along with current defensive coordinator John Marshall. Does this personnel move indicate the possibility of the Raiders seeking to replace Marshall as well?

Perhaps that is just reading too much into re-hiring of Waufle.

Then again, with the insane amount of coaching rumors that have been swirling around Alameda this week, it would seem that anything is possible and nothing can be ruled out.

In other news, Tom Cable has made it through another week as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders.

    So let’s see what’s happening in Oakland. Al goes in his office, closes the door, calls various people and starts rumors. When Bay Area reporters write about said rumors, the great John Herrera calls them liars. Meanwhile, the Raider Nation and Tom Cable are left to slowly twist in the wind.

    What a great way to sell 2010 season tickets.

    Hey Al, read THIS billboard:

    You’re a myopic, delusional moron.

    Hire Mike Waufle for the raiders d-line, what a joke. He could not handle the best d-line of the giants and now the raiders hire them.

    Just like the Giants, Mike Waufle will fail with the raiders D-Line

    Mike Waufle is a waste! Another fired reject. Are the raider nation that desperate. Why did the giants fire this bum? Because he trash the giants D Line.

  • Cherry

    I was sure hoping mike waufle did not destroy the D Line like he did at the NY Giants but he has done nothing to stop the run. The tallent is there. We need a coach that can get our D Line motivated. Mike waufle is not the guy!!!!
