Report: Ex-Giants assistant goes to Oakland
By Dan Graziano
Former New York Giants defensive line coach Mike Waufle has accepted the same role with the Oakland Raiders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Waufle, a player favorite during his six years with Tom Coughlin, joins a coaching staff that is in limbo right now. The Giants have not replaced Waufle at this point.
Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger reports that Coughlin is keeping his assistants at home and not sending them to the Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala. I've talked to a lot of coaches who truly enjoy going to the Senior Bowl because they get an early look at players before their reputations are cemented at the combine.
I'll be checking in with scouts at the Senior Bowl on a daily basis, so I'll try to provide you with some nuggets next week.
