The Raiders Have Hired A New Defensive Coordinator

Jason Tarver Named Oakland Raiders New Defensive Coordinator - SBNation.com. This is relevant for the Green Bay Packers because their cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt Jr. was reportedly someone the Raiders wanted to interview. I'm not sure the Packers ever gave their permission for an interview, but even if they did, the job went to someone else.

2011 wasn't a banner year for the cornerbacks as Sam Shields and Tramon Williams slumped. They didn't get any unexpected contributions either as rookie Davon House was inactive for most of the season, and Pat Lee continued to not develop. But Whitt remains a young coach on the rise, and I don't expect this will be the last time his name comes up in a rumor.
