Greg Knapp takes OC job with Raiders

While T.J. Yates came out of nowhere to help lead the Texans to the playoffs after they lost Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart to injury, his quarterbacks coach is getting a big promotion.

As the Houston Chronicle writes, Houston coach Gary Kubiak confirmed that Texans quarterback coach Greg Knapp has taken the Raiders offensive coordinator job.

Knapp shouldn’t be unfamiliar with the Raiders organization, considering he was their offensive coordinator from 2007-08 (he also has been the offensive coordinator for the 49ers and the Falcons).

Also, according to Foxsports.com, new Oakland coach Dennis Allen is trying to fill out his staff by interviewing former 49ers and Chargers defensive coordinator Greg Manusky for the same job with the Raiders.

Why anyone would want to go to the Raiders organization is beyond me.

I love this McKenzie guy.  He hires a coach whose defense with the Broncos faded at the end of the season to be the head coach of the famous fade down the stretch Raiders. Then bring in a guy to be Offensive Coordinator who was the OC for the Raiders when they had those fantastic seasons in 2007 and 2008 (4 - 12 and 5 - 11).

WOW

Knapp was the QB coach in Houston in theory, but Kubiak handled those duties.

i dont love this move. Al Saunders did a nice job with the offense this year and I was hoping the new regime would keep him on board. The biggest problem that needed fixing was the porous defense
