I just got an update on my phone (from ESPN) that the Raiders have hired former Jets offensive coordinator. Tony will have the title of the Raiders Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Line Coach.

The Oakland Raiders have hired former Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano as their assistant head coach/offensive line.
Here's the info, hot off the press.
Here's a link talking about Sporano meeting/interviewing with the Raiders a couple days back.
Former Miami Dolphins head coach and former New York Jets’ offensive coordinator Tony Sparano is a potential offensive line coaching candidate in Oakland. He interviewed for the same job in Kansas City, but new Chiefs’ coach Andy Reid hired Andy Heck instead.
I think Sparano would be a good addition to the Oakland Raiders staff because of his experience. He also has a good track record as an offensive line coach. Oakland is also looking for a linebackers coach.
