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:
