He didn't do crap with the kicker..If you think our special team play was in any way acceptable, you know nothing about football.....We get the ball on the 20 yard line and they get the ball on the 40 yard line......NOT GOOD

I doubt that Rob Ryan is going to want to go backwards from DC to ST's coach.

They need to update the team information page as they still have Mornhenweg and April on their as coaches. It's been reported that Mornhenweg has been hired by the Jets.

If any of these coordinators were worth their weight in gold, don't you think Andy Reid would have brought them with him to Kansas City.

Marty did not value the run game and only seemed to be marginally able to adjust the game plan at halftime.

April was terrible, while being proclaimed as the best special teams coach in the league when he was hired.

Both coaches came off very unintelligent during their press conferences, however April sounded way more "aw schucks" than Marty.

I don't understand how if these guys were so great why Andy didn't take them to KC with him, obviously he knew his coordinators were horrible but couldn't admit it. Fresh start hopefully with some decent coaches!

So glad both these Bums are gone. Raiders are an awful team to even give this joke a job.
