Former Oakland Raiders and Florida Tuskers defensivecoordinator Chuck Bresnahan was announced as the newest member of coach Willie Taggarts team on Wednesday evening.
Bresnahan, who coached linebackers in the NFL as early as 1994, most recently coached UFLs Sacramento MountainLions.
After being hired by Jon Gruden in 1998,Bresnahan served as the defensive
coordinator for the Raiders from 2000-03 and again in 2011. Though there was muchspeculation that Bresnahan was fired by the Raiders after aseason in which they allowed the second highest number of points in franchise history, the Raiders initially denied he had been fired.

I couldnt be more excited about the talent and experience weve added to our defensive staff today, Taggart said in a statement. Chuck has coached at the highest levels and will bring a wealth of knowledge on thedefensive side of the ball. Hisability to teach the game and mentor our players will be an asset to this football team and I know hell be a terrific recruiter.
