In total, new Las Vegas Raiders defensive coordinator Gus Bradley will bring four coaches on that side of the ball with him from the Los Angeles Chargers’ staff.

The Raiders hired Bradley — who spent the past four seasons with the Chargers — earlier this month to replace Paul Guenther, who was fired in December after spending nearly three full seasons with the Raiders. The Chargers’ staff was fired after the 2020 season.

The Raiders announced on Friday afternoon that Bradley is bringing secondary coach Ron Milus, linebacker coach Richard Smith, assistant defensive backs coach Addison Lynch and defensive quality control coach Ryan Milus. Lynch was with the Chargers for three seasons and Ryan (Ron’s son) Milus was with the team for two seasons.

Ron Milus and Smith’s hirings have already been announced. Both are considered top-level position coaches in the NFL.

The only known opening on Jon Gruden’s staff is tight ends coach. Frank Smith got a promotion with the Chargers last week.
