2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game: Arizona Cardinals v Dallas Cowboys

With reports out already that Jon Gruden has chosen who he wants as his Offensive and Defensive Coordinator when he takes the head coaching job with the Raiders, the next in line would be special teams. For that he will look at another familiar face — Rich Bisaccia, as first reported by Michael Lombardi and later confirmed by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Bisaccia is currently with the Cowboys, but will be allowed to leave Dallas to join Gruden in Oakland should he choose to do so, despite having two years left on his current contract.

It is a reunion for Bisaccia and Gruden. Bisaccia was Gruden’s Special Teams Coordinator for all seven seasons in Tampa from 2002-08. He was named Assistant Head Coach in 2008.

Since then, Bisaccia held the STC position with the Chargers from 2011-12 before taking the job with the Cowboys where he’s been the past five seasons under head coach Jason Garrett.
