Raiders Set to Hire Wylie, Bresnahan

Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson is set to add Bob Wylie and Chuck Bresnahan to his coaching staff, Jerry McDonald reports.

Wylie has 15 years of NFL coaching experience, mostly as a tight ends coach with the New York Jets (1990-91), Cincinnati Bengals (1997-98), Chicago Bears (1999-2003), and Arizona Cardinals (2004). Wylie coached offensive lines with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1992-95 an Denver Broncos, where was the assistant offensive line coach last season.

The Raiders defensive coordinator from 2000-03, Bresnahan is expected to coach the team's linebackers. The 50-year old Springfield, Massachusetts native worked was the Bengals defensive coordinator when Jackson coached the team's receivers during the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Oakland is still searching for a defensive coordinator, with Green Bay Packers secondary coach Darren Perry and linebackers coach Winston Moss possibly on the team's interview wish list.
