Raiders to hire former 49ers assistant James Cregg to coach offensive line

For the first time this offseason, the Raiders actually have hired more offensive coaches than they had decommit. With Luke Getsy as the team’s new offensive coordinator, his first hire is James Cregg to be offensive line coach.

Cregg comes over from the San Francisco 49ers where he was the assistant offensive line coach the past two seasons. This is his first ever job as an offensive line coach at the NFL level.

His first NFL job came in 2007 when he was the Raiders assistant offensive line coach for two seasons. He has also served as an assistant OL coach for the Broncos and Chargers and had stints as OL coach at Tennessee, USC, and LSU.
