The Raiders hired Craig Dickenson as assistant special teams coordinator this offseason, an item which probably wouldn’t even inspire a post on PFT had the Raiders announced the move.
But Raiders typically didn’t bother to tell anyone, so someone should. Steve Corkran of the Oakland Tribune was that someone on Thursday when he passed along the news.
After spending the last eight years in the CFL, we’ll forgive Dickenson for not knowing that coaching hires should remain a secret in Oakland. He told the Great Falls Tribune he was hired back in April.
Dickenson will work under special teams coordinator John Fassell. Heck, Dickenson may even get his name listed on the team’s official website by September.
