The Lions have added two assistants with NFL coaching experience to their staff.

The club has hired Tony Oden as assistant secondary coach and Matt Raich as defensive quality control coach, the club said Tuesday.

Oden was the Buccaneers’ secondary/cornerbacks coach in 2013. Before that, he had stints with the Jaguars (2012), Saints (2006-2011) and Texans (2004-05) coaching defensive backs in some capacity.

Raich was the Cardinals’ linebackers coach from 2009-2012. He held the same position at Duquesne University in 2013.
