We are just about done with the coaching moves the Raiders were to need to consider this offseason. The most major remaining was getting Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Line Coach Mike Tice signed back. And it appears the team is about to do just that, as Adam Caplan first reported.

Tice was the mastermind behind the Raiders’ top offensive line this past season which saw three players named Pro Bowlers and a fourth an alternate. Tice’s two-year deal with the team has expired after last season and keeping him was the team’s top priority.
Since the offseason began, the Raiders opted not to bring back Offensive Coordinator Bill Musgrave and fired Defensive Backs Coach Marcus Robertson.
Musgrave was replaced by the promotion of Quarterback’s Coach Todd Downing, whose position was then filled by the promotion of Assistant QB coach Jake Peetz. Robertson’s position as DB coach has not yet been filled.
