Tony Sparano given a 2 year contract extension by the Raiders
Despite reports that he was heading to Tampa Bay to join new Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith’s staff, Tony Sparano is staying with the Oakland Raiders.
The team announced late Friday afternoon that Sparano has signed a two-year contract to remain the Raiders’ assistant head coach/offensive line coach.
Heading into the week, only offensive coordinator Greg Olson and linebackers coach Bob Sanders had contracts for 2014 among coach Dennis Allen’s assistants. At least three other coaches agreed to one-year extensions Tuesday with Allen having two years remaining on his contract.
