Raiders Lose Special Teams Coach John Fassel to the Rams

John Fassel, who has overseen the Raiders’ special teams unit as its coordinator the past three years, is leaving Oakland for a similar position with St. Louis under new Rams coach Jeff Fisher.

Fassel is the son of former New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel.

Fassel is the third member of last year’s staff to depart the Raiders, joining defensive line coach Mike Waufle in St. Louis and receivers coach Sanjay Lal, who accepted the same position with the New York Jets.

    Given the special teams performance over the last couple years (net of kicking and punting, which we OWN), this is not what I would consider a “loss”. I think we can do much, much better. Rick J, Black hole, Sec108, R13, Seats 1&2. RAIDER FOR LIFE.
