Following the 2013 season, the Raiders brought back all but four of their coaches. They began filling those four positions Monday. As of today, the team has announced all four positions have been filled and the coaching staff is now officially complete.

The four coaches announced today were defensive backs coach Joe Woods, assistant defensive backs coach Marcus Robertson, assistant special teams coach Chris Boniol, and assistant strength and conditioning coach Vernon Stephens.

The hire of Joe Woods and Marcus Robertson had been confirmed prior to this. See the details on them here. The hire of Boniol had been reported as well. See the details on his hire here. The only hire that had yet to be reported or confirmed was that of Vernon Stephens. Here are his credentials per the Raiders press release:

Stephens: Stephens enters his first season with the Raiders after spending six seasons with the San Diego Chargers (2007-12) in the same capacity. Stephens came to the Chargers after four years as the assistant speed, strength and conditioning coach at University of Colorado (2003-06). At Colorado, he worked with the Buffaloes' football, basketball, track and field and cross country teams.
