Former Raiders special teams coordinator and interim head coach Rich Bisaccia has been hired as the Green Bay Packers’ next special teams coordinator. Bisaccia’s story is well-known at this point after he took over as Raiders head coach midseason following the resignation of Jon Gruden. The Raiders went 7-6 under Rich Bisaccia in 2021, including their wild card loss to the eventual AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals.
Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels has filled the special teams coordinator position by hiring Tom McMahon. McMahon has spent the last four seasons with the Denver Broncos as special teams coordinator. McMahon has also spent time with the Falcons, Rams Chiefs, and Colts.
The Raiders boast one of the best pair of kicking specialists in the league with first-team All-Pro punter A.J. Cole and second-team All-Pro kicker Daniel Carlson. Both players played key roles during the Raiders’ run to the playoffs, and both players signed contract extensions midseason.
The last piece of the puzzle in terms of major staffing decisions for McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler will be the offensive coordinator position. However, with McDaniels now in charge of the team and his long history of success as an offensive coordinator in the NFL, the eventual offensive coordinator will serve in an assistant role while McDaniels calls plays.
