AFC West notes

By Bill Williamson

Fox Sports reported that Texas A&M’s Terrell Williams was hired as Oakland’s defensive line coach. Williams played at the school with new Oakland coach Dennis Allen. Former Kansas City defensive line coach Tim Krumrie was also a candidate. Like at Stanford, Texas A&M ran a 3-4. Oakland just hired Stanford’s Jason Tarver as defensive coordinator.

Allen was noncommittal about whether the Raiders will use the 4-3 or 3-4 defense as their base defense. He ran the 4-3 in Denver and Oakland ran the 4-3 prior to Allen being hired. Allen has said the Raiders will show multiple looks.
