Tony Sparano remaining in Oakland

Posted · Add Comment

After being courted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, veteran assistant coach Tony Sparano is remaining with the Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders announced that Sparano has signed a two-year contract.

He will remain the Raiders' assistant head coach and offensive line coach.

There had been a disconnect between Raiders owner Mark Davis and several assistant coaches who wanted two-year deals rather than one-year contracts.

Apparently, that conflict has been resolved, at least for Sparano.

Davis announced earlier this week that head coach Dennis Allen is returning.
