Hall of Famer Rod Woodson Joins Raiders Coaching Staff

Posted Feb 14, 2011

Pro Football Hall of Famer and Raider Legend Rod Woodson returns to the Silver and Black as a member of the team’s coaching staff.


Hall of Famer Rod Woodson has joined the Raiders coaching staff.

Pro Football Hall of Famer and Raider Legend Rod Woodson returns to the Silver and Black as a member of the team’s coaching staff. Woodson will serve as assistant coach, cornerbacks.

“I’m excited that we have a Hall of Fame player who is coming back to the organization,” said Raiders Head Coach Hue Jackson. “I was extremely impressed during the interview process with his communication skills and I’m looking forward to Rod imparting his wealth of knowledge to our players.”

Woodson played 17 NFL seasons from 1987-2003, including the final two of a Hall of Fame career with the Raiders (2002-03).

“It’s an honor to be back with the Raiders and be able to talk to Raider players about true football,” said Woodson, who most recently served as an analyst for the NFL Network and as a color commentator for the Big Ten Network. “I’m looking forward to working with the organization and the challenges of the 2011 season.”


Rod Woodson's 98-yard interception return for a touchdown at Denver helped the Raiders snap a four-game losing streak and propelled the Silver and Black to an 11-5 record and a berth in Super Bowl XXXVII.

He was a key member of a Silver and Black team that captured the American Football Conference title in 2002 and played in Super Bowl XXXVII.  He shares the Raiders record for most interceptions in a single game with three (9-29-02 vs. Tennessee) and is tied for second all-time in Silver and Black history for most interceptions returned for a touchdown with two. He also played in Super Bowls XXX (with Pittsburgh) and XXXV (with Baltimore).

The Fort Wayne, Indiana native was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009. He was also named to the 1990s All-Decade Team, was named to the Pro Bowl 11 times, a record for a defensive back and in 1994 was one of only five active players to be named to the NFL’s 75th Anniversary Team. He was Defensive Player of the Year in 1993 and earned All-Pro First Team honors six times as a cornerback, safety and kick returner.

Woodson established NFL records for career interception return yardage (1,483) and interception returns for touchdowns (12) during his NFL career (Pittsburgh Steelers, 1987-96; San Francisco 49ers, 1997; Baltimore Ravens, 1998-2001; and Raiders, 2002-03). His 71 career interceptions rank third in NFL history. The former Purdue football and track star originally entered the NFL as Pittsburgh’s first round pick in 1987.
