Oakland Raiders Add Tony Sparano To Coaching Staff

USATSI_8316911_154224518_lowresafter only one season with the New York Jets, Tony Sparano was fired as offensive coordinator following a disappointing 6-10 season.

Firing Sparano was only one of a many moves the team intended to make heading into the off-season with GM Mike Tannenbaum also fired and the quarterback situation needing to be sorted out with the fates of Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow uncertain.

Fortunately for Sparano, it wasn’t long before another team reached out to him. The Oakland Raiders have reportedly hired Sparano only a few weeks after the Jets let him go according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

The Oakland Raiders have hired former New York Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano as their assistant head coach/offensive line, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Sparano has bounced around quite a bit since breaking into coaching back in 1984 with the University of New Haven.

The 51-year-old continued coaching on the East Coast assuming a few different roles. Sparano first started out as an offensive line coach for New Haven and ultimately became the head coach from 1994 to 1998 with a five-year stint with Boston University in between.

In 1999, Sparano made the jump to the NFL with the Cleveland Browns for two years before heading to the Washington Redskins and Jacksonville Jaguars. After two years as the offensive line coach for the Redskins and Jaguars, Sparano headed to the Dallas Cowboys or a five-year stint as an offensive line coach and assistant head coach.

After parting ways with the Cowboys, Sparano landed his first head coaching gig in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins. Sparano stayed with the Dolphins until 2011 and ended up with the Jets as the offensive coordinator until being signed by the Raiders for the duel role of offensive line coach and assistant head coach.

The Raiders have been in the news quite a bit over the last few days with Tim Brown creating some controversy surrounding the Super Bowl XXXVII outcome and former number one overall pick JaMarcus Russell considering an NFL comeback.
