Former Bills Defensive Backs Coach Donnie Henderson’s track record is extensive, dating back to 1983. In Buffalo, Henderson got the best out of a young core, which consists of cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Stephen Gilmore.
Since Henderson’s departure, turmoil struck the Bills secondary. Prior to Buffalo, Henderson coached DBs for the Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and Arizona Cardinals. Most impressive is his time as New York Jets defensive coordinator in 2005, when the Jets pass defense was ranked second in the NFL.
Moreover, Henderson brings the best out of his players, a must for Oakland. As a veteran coach, he could be exactly what the Raiders secondary needs to get the ship turned around.
