Raiders Officially Hire Two Assistants, Including DL Coach Rod Marinelli

The Raiders announced on Wednesday they have officially hired DL coach Rod Marinelli and offensive quality control coach Austin King.

Marinelli, 70, began his NFL coaching career with the Buccaneers back in 1996 as their defensive line coach. He spent 10 years in Tampa Bay before he was hired as the Lions head coach in 2006.

Unfortunately, Marinelli was fired after three seasons and he later agreed to become the Bears’ assistant head coach the following year. Marinelli has been with the Cowboys since 2013. He moved from defensive coordinator to a senior advisor role in 2019. 

In 2019, Dallas finished No. 9 in yards allowed per game and No. 11 in scoring defense, while also coming in No. 10 in passing yards per game and No. 11 in rushing yards per game.
