The Raiders continue to fill up Dennis Allen’s first coaching staff, with the addition of two new assistant coaches.
The team announced today that Johnny Holland (pictured) has been hired to serve as linebackers coach, and Keith Burns will hold the title of assistant special teams coach.
Burns has coached for 28 years at the college level, most recently as assistant coach/secondary at Mississippi. Holland was out of coaching in 2011 after spending five years as linebackers coach with the Texans.
He previously worked for the Lions and Packers, with a three-year gap in his coaching resume from 2000 through 2003. Holland played for the Packers through 1994 and worked as a defensive quality control assistant on the Super Bowl XXXI championship and Super Bowl XXXII runner-up Packers teams.
