Raiders Hire Jason Tarver as Their New Defensive Cooridnator

The Raiders have a new defensive coordinator, as today the team announced that Jason Tarver is going to run the D.

Tarver spent 2011 as the co-defensive coordinator and inside linebackers coach at Stanford University. Prior to his stint in Palo Alto, Tarver spent 10 seasons as a quality control/linebackers coach with the San Francisco 49ers.

Oakland interviewed veteran defensive coordinator Greg Manusky for the position, but Manusky accepted the same position with the Indianapolis Colts. Green Bay Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt and New Orleans Saints defensive line coach Bill Johnson were also on first-year head coach Dennis Allen’s candidates list.
