Yesterday, there were reports that Ken Norton Jr., was a favorite to land the Raiders defensive coordinator position. Well today, CSN Bay Area is reporting the team did hire the former Seahawks coach.
The Oakland Raiders have named Ken Norton, Jr. as the team’s new defensive coordinator. Norton played alongside head coach Jack Del Rio for three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. The Raiders were the last team in the NFL not to have named a defensive coordinator.
This is a great hire for the Raiders, who already have a solid foundation.
