Oakland Raiders To Hire Greg Knapp As Offensive Coordinator


According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders will hire former Houston Texans Quarterbacks Coach Greg Knapp to be their Offensive Coordinator replacing Al Saunders.

Knapp, along with previously being OC in Seattle, Atlanta and San Francisco, was with the Oakland Raiders in 2007 and 2008 as Offensive Coordinator and lost his job the first time when Tom Cable became Head Coach mid-season following the dismissal of Lane Kiffin.

Expect an aggressive and up-tempo type offense from Oakland as this is what new Head Coach Dennis Allen indicated in a press conference on Monday. Knapp is well versed in the West Coast Offense having spent nine years on the offensive staff in San Francisco from 1995 to 2003.
