Raiders Linked to Potential Replacement for Rich Bisaccia as Special Teams Coordinator
The Las Vegas Raiders have been in search of a new special teams coordinator after Rich Bisaccia was hired to the same position with the Green Bay Packers. Another candidate has reportedly been added to the list as the team has shown interest in former New York Giants head coach Joe Judge.
Judge was recently fired after leading the Giants to a 10-23 record over the course of two seasons. The 40-year-old spent the first eight years of his NFL coaching experience leading the special teams unit in New England. It was with the Patriots that Judge started to garner national attention.
Of course, that means he has a connection to new Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels. The two worked together under head coach Bill Belichick from 2012-2019. It's also worth noting that Judge wouldn't even be the first former Giants' staffer to be hired by the Raiders this offseason.
Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham was hired to take on the same role in Las Vegas and a reunion between him and his former boss isn't out of the question. Keep in mind that Judge is remaining patient and may not jump at the first coaching opportunity that comes his way, though.
The Raiders will aim to compete in a tough AFC West division in 2022 behind the hope that McDaniels can bring a new spark on offense. That seems to be a long shot, though. Las Vegas currently has odds set at +6000 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
