According to CSN Bay Area's Paul Gutierrezthe Oakland Raiders have reportedly hired former Houston Texans assistant offensive line coach Frank Pollack as their new head offensive line coach, marking another piece of the coaching puzzle being put together by head coach Dennis Allen.
Pollack had been in his previous role with the Texans since 2007, replacing Bob Wylie who had been with the Raiders for only a single season. The Raiders have not yet confirmed the report.
Here's Gutierrez's take on where Pollack will fit in:
The arrival of Pollack, meanwhile, probably means a return to a zone-blocking scheme as Pollack has coached nothing but the philosophy in the NFL with Houston. Under Wylie, the Raiders were a power-blocking team.
Wheteher this is good or bad for the Silver and Black is yet to be seen, but it's just another thing that the Raiders are trying to shake up this offseason.
Pollack was a sixth-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers back in 1990, playing his college ball at Northern Arizona. He was also a member of their 1994 Super Bowl championship team.
