JASON TARVER IS THE NEW OAKLAND RAIDERS’ DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR
Wed, 08 Feb 2012 06:09 PM EST

The Oakland Raiders didn’t seem far to get a defensive coordinator.

The Oakland Raiders employed Stanford’s Jason Tarver, who helped shape one of the Pac-12’s best defenses while assisting as co-defensive coordinator and overseeing the linebackers under newbie head coach David Shaw last season.

Tarver spent the prior period of ten years as a 49ers assistant, including the last 6 seasons (2005-2010) coaching the outside linebackers. After the San Francisco 49ers hired Jim Harbaugh, Tarver went back to the college ranks to team with co-defensive coordinator Derek Mason at Stanford. Basketball lines

Tarver returns to the National Football League with a rather bigger task.

Despite having many high-priced players on that side of the ball, the Oakland Raiders struggled awfully on defense last season. Oakland had franchise worst in touchdown passes allowed (31), yards per carry (5.1), yards passing (4,262) and total yards (6,201) although giving up the 3rd-most points (433) in team record.

Just last offseason, cornerback Stanford Routt, linebacker Kamerion Wimbley, defensive tackle Richard Seymour and safety Michael Huff received contracts valued at much a lot more than $160 million combined. That band joined former top 10 pick Rolando McClain, who confirmed a $40 million, 5-year agreement when he was drafted in 2010; and defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, who just finished the fourth year of a $50.5 million, 7-year deal, on one of the league’s most pricey defenses, and least productive.

The Oakland Raiders joined this year’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers team as one of the 4 groups to allow at least 30 TD passes and 5.0 yards per carry in a season, an excellence last reached by the 1952 Dallas Texans. The Raiders, who finished 8-8 last season, as well became the 6th team since the 1970 fusion to allow at least two thousand yards rushing and four thousand yards passing in a season.

That prompted actual director Reggie McKenzie to discharge Hue Jackson after one season as coach and hire Dennis Allen, the former Denver Broncos defensive coordinator. Allen and Tarver will divide the task of fixing two long-standing issues on defense: stopping the run and reducing penalties. Basketball betting lines

The Oakland Raiders set an NFL record last season with 163 penalties for 1,358 yards.

The 37-year-old Tarver received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Santa Clara in 1997. He also qualified his master’s degree in biochemistry and molecular biology from UCLA and the departmental prize for distinguished teaching in 1998 and 2000.

Under the tutelage of Tarver and Mason, Stanford’s defense ranked either 1st or 2nd in the Pac-12 in 8 classes last season. That included first in total defense (331.4 yards) and rushing defense (107.8 yards) per game in the offense-oriented league.

Stanford also lost 53-30 at home to Oregon Ducks, costing the program a shot at the Pac-12 and BCS championships. The Cardinal finished with an 11-2 record, including a 41-38 overtime loss in the Fiesta Bowl to Oklahoma State.

The Oakland Raiders now include all 3 coordinators in place.

Greg Knapp replaced Al Saunders on offense and Steve Hoffman is getting over for John Fassel as exclusive teams’ coordinator. There’re still certain location coaches and lower-level assistants to fill out.
