We knew this would happen. but it still sucks. I liked Waufle even though I knew he probably wouldn't be coming back. This was reported by the NFL Network and Jerry McDonald:
Defensive line coach Mike Waulfe will be the second Raiders assistant coach to leave for another job while the club awaits the hire of a new head coach, according to the NFL Network.
Waufle, who coached the last two seasons with the Raiders after an earlier stint from 1998-2003, was added to the staff of the St. Louis Rams Friday, according to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network.
Wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal accepted a job with the New York Jets earlier this week.
Waufle was in attendance at the press conference of new general manager Reggie McKenzie, who said he will leave it to the new Raiders head coach to make all hires on his staff. McKenzie is still in the process of interviewing prospective candidates.
As of Friday, Waufle was still included on the Raiders’ roster of assistant coaches.
Hopefully we start hearing some news from ALameda, this is driving me nuts.
