The Raiders formally announced the hire of Brad Seely as special teams coach on Tuesday evening. Seely comes to the East Bay from Santa Clara, where he coached 49ers special teams since 2011. He was also the team’s assistant head coach.
The 58-year old has been coaching special teams since 1989, and has had tremendous success coaching that phase of the game.
Seely has been named special teams coach of the year three times, using widely recognized special-teams rankings by Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News. It occurred in 1996 with the Carolina Panthers, in 2009 with the Cleveland Browns and again in 2011 with the 49ers. He had a strong tenure with the New England Patriots during a stretch where the team won three Super Bowls.
Seely is the Raiders’ second coordinator hired. Bill Musgrave was brought on as offensive coordinator on Monday.
The Silver and Black have not announced the hiring of offensive line coach Mike Tice, whom an NFL source confirmed to CSN Bay Area on Friday was coming on board. Musgrave said on Tuesday that Tice sat in with head coach Jack Del Rio on his Monday interview.
