ALAMEDA, California — The Oakland Raiders have officially hired four assistant coaches for new coach Jack Del Rio's staff.

The team announced the hiring Friday of offensive line coach Mike Tice, defensive backs coach Marcus Robertson, linebackers coach Sal Sunseri and quarterbacks coach Todd Downing.

Tice was offensive line coach in Atlanta last season. He worked under Del Rio for four years in Jacksonville and has been a head coach for Minnesota.

Robertson returns to the staff for a second season after being praised by Charles Woodson for his work with the safeties last year.

Sunseri ran the defense at Florida State last season and has also coached for seven years in the NFL with Carolina.

Downing spent last season as quarterbacks coach in Buffalo.
