Former Clemson DL hired by Raiders


by - Assoc. Editor -

The Oakland Raiders have hired former Clemson defensive lineman Brentson Bucker as their new defensive line coach.

Last season, Buckner coached the defensive line of the Buccaneers before being let go with the entire staff once Bruce Arians took over as the head coach.

Buckner coached the defensive line of the Arizona Cardinals for five years (2012-2017) as they were a solid group with 203 total sacks during that span. His other coaching experience included three years as a coaching intern with the Pittsburgh Steelers and was the head coach of the Northside Christian Academy in Charlotte, N.C. for a season.

He was a second-round draft pick out of Clemson in the 1994 NFL Draft and played 12 seasons in the NFL with Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, San Francisco, and Carolina. He accumulated 324 tackles, 31 sacks, two interceptions, five forced fumbles, and seven fumble recoveries during his standout pro career.
