06:14 PM ET 01.19 | The Oakland Raiders hired former Jaguars quarterback coach Greg Olson as their new offensive coordinator, replacing Greg Knapp. The Raiders interviewed Norv Turner and Marc Trestman in addition to Olson, but Turner opted to take the offensive coordinator job in Cleveland, and Trestman was hired as the head coach of the Bears. Olson has previously worked as the offensive coordinator of the Lions, Rams, and Buccaneers.
