Tony Sparano remaining in Oakland
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.
