The Oakland Raiders have added six more assistants to the 2012 coaching staff including two who are in their second stints with the Silver and Black—quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, wide receivers coach Ted Gilmore, tight ends coach Mark Hutson, defensive backs coach Clayton Lopez, defensive backs coach Johnnie Lynn and defensive line coach Terrell Williams.

DeFilippo, who coached quarterbacks for the Silver and Black from 2007-08, served in the same capacity at San Jose State for the last two seasons. He was also the assistant quarterbacks coach with the New York Jets in 2009.

Gilmore enters his first season on an NFL staff after coaching at the collegiate level for 17 seasons. Most recently, Gilmore served as wide receivers coach at USC in 2011. Gilmore spent six years (2005-10) at Nebraska coaching wide receivers and was the Cornhuskers' recruiting coordinator for four years (2007-10).

Hutson also enters his first season on an NFL staff. A 25-year veteran of the college game as both a player and coach, Hutson spent the past five seasons as an assistant at Tulane and served as the interim head coach for the Green Wave in 2011.

An assistant for 17 years at the NFL level, Lynn coached defensive backs for the Philadelphia Eagles last season. Lynn joined Philadelphia after five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, serving as secondary coach and assistant head coach from 2009-10.

Lopez returns to the Raiders after serving in a similar capacity with the Silver and Black for two seasons (2004-05). Lopez was most recently with the St. Louis Rams where he served as defensive backs/cornerbacks coach for three seasons (2009-11).

Williams comes to Oakland after spending the previous two seasons in the same capacity at Texas A&M, helping the Aggies to a pair of bowl game appearances. Williams previously served as the defensive line coach at Purdue (2006-09) and coached the defensive line at Akron (2004-05) and Youngstown State (2002-03).
