Al Saunders was an offensive consultant for Baltimore for the last two years and now he is the Raiders Offensive Coordinator.
Saunders has coached great offenses in the past and chooses to come to the Raiders at opportune time.
The Raiders offense ranked in the top 10 while shuffling quarterbacks.
Hue Jackson and Saunders will now combine to see if they can turn the Raiders offense into an elite one.
Saunders coordinated an elite for five years in Kansas City on the back of Priest Holmes.
Cam Cameron was entrenched in Baltimore and Saunders had taken a few jobs in recent years that didn’t give him the accolades he deserves as one of the better offensive minds in professional football.
Now Saunders will help fine tune Jason Campbell and hopefully get Darrius Heyward-Bey going in the right direction.
Now that it is official, Saunders can get to work preparing for the 2011 season, if there is one.
