Raiders Hire Edgar Bennett As WRs Coach

Chris Mortensen reports that the Raiders have hired former Packers OC Edgar Bennett as their new WRs coach.

There was some talk that Bennett could be moved back to WRs coach with the Packers, but it appears as though Bennett felt it was better for him to start a new with a different team.

Bennett, 48, played eight seasons in the NFL as a running back. He was hired by the Packers as their RBs coach in 2005 and he managed to work his way up to offensive coordinator in 2015.

For his NFL career, Bennett rushed for 3,992 yards on 1,115 carries (3.6 YPC) to go along with 284 catches for 2,245 yards receiving and another 10 touchdowns.
