Raiders make coaching hires official

The Oakland Raiders hired Bobby April as special-teams coach. April has held that position with six previous NFL teams, including the past three with new Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid with the Philadelphia Eagles. Reid took several coaches from Philadelphia with him to Kansas City. April was not one of them.

Oakland also made official the hiring of offensive coordinator Greg Olson. The Raiders are still looking for an offensive-line coach and a linebackers coach.
