Lal played his college football in Seattle at the University of Washington and was a part of their 1991 national championship team. Lal has 13 years of coaching experience in the NFL with his last two years being with the Cowboys. Lal coached with Seahawks’ offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer with the Indianapolis Colts in 2017 when Schottenheimer was the team’s quarterbacks coach.

Lal has also coached for the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders.

  1. Lal will coach the receivers to run slightly deeper routes so they don’t get tackled short of the goal line and the first down marker on 3rd and 4th downs.

  2. Pretty sure Sanjay is still the only Coach or Player of Indian descent currently in the NFL. Kinda interesting.
