John DeFilippo enters his fifth year with the Raiders as quarterbacks coach in 2014. He is in his second stint with Oakland, having served in the same capacity from 2007-08.

Last year, DeFilippo guided two young quarterbacks seeing their first significant playing time in the NFL in Terrelle Pryor and Matt McGloin. The young duo of Pryor (1,798 passing yards) and McGloin (1,547 passing yards) combined to throw for 3,345 yards on the year. Pryor also rushed for 576 yards, setting a franchise single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback, and finishing second in rushing amongst QBs. He became one of just eight quarterbacks since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970 to throw for at least 200 yards and rush for at least 100 yards in the same game (Sept. 8 at Ind.) McGloin shined under DeFilippo’s direction as well, becoming the first undrafted rookie with three or more touchdown passes in his first NFL start since 1987 and earned Pepsi Rookie of the Week honors for his performance. From Week 11-15, McGloin completed more passes of 25-or-more yards than any other quarterback in the league.

In 2012, four Oakland passers (Carson Palmer - 565, Matt Leinart - 33, Terrelle Pryor - 30, Shane Lechler - 1) combined to attempt 629 passes, surpassing the franchise record of 619 attempts set during the 2002 season. In addition, Palmer produced one of the most prolific passing seasons in Raider history. Palmer tied for second on the Raiders’ single-season list in attempts (565), finished third in completions (345), second in yards (4,018) and 14th in touchdowns (22). Palmer also became just the second quarterback in Raider history to pass for 4,000 yards in a single season with 4,018. Rich Gannon holds the Silver and Black’s single-season record with 4,689 passing yards in 2002.

Prior to rejoining the Raiders in 2012, DeFilippo coached at San Jose State from 2010-11, serving as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2011, and quarterbacks coach in 2010. He was assistant quarterbacks coach for the New York Jets in 2009.

During his tenure at San Jose State, the Spartans ranked 23rd in the nation with 276.8 passing yards per game and jumped 32 places nationally in total offense from the previous year. The team also set a single season school record with 297 pass completions. DeFilippo tutored QB Matt Faulkner, who ranked second in the Western Athletic Conference in passing by completing 274 of 422 attempts for 3,149 yards and 13 touchdowns. In 2010, he coached QB Jordan La Secla, who was with the Raiders in training camp in 2011.

As assistant quarterbacks coach for the Jets in 2009, he helped coach rookie QB Mark Sanchez, who led the Jets to the AFC Championship in his first season as a pro.

DeFilippo’s NFL coaching career began with the New York Giants in 2005, when he served as offensive quality control coach on Tom Coughlin’s staff for two years. He helped the Giants to two postseason appearances, and New York posted a 19-13 regular-season record during his time there.

He joined the Giants after two seasons as quarterbacks coach at Columbia, where he tutored QB Jeff Otis, who left the school ranked second in program history in completions and passing yards, and went on to spend time on the Raiders practice squad.

From 2001-02, DeFilippo was a graduate assistant at Notre Dame, working with wide receivers and tight ends under Bob Davie in 2001, and with quarterbacks under Tyrone Willingham in 2002. He helped lead the Irish to an 8-0 start in 2002, with wins over No. 7 Michigan and No. 11 Florida State, and a Gator Bowl berth.

He began his coaching career tutoring quarterbacks at Fordham in 2000.

PERSONAL: DeFilippo was a four-year letterwinner, playing quarterback at James Madison University and helped the team to a conference title as a senior in 1999. He held NFL summer coaching internships with the Carolina Panthers in 1997 and the Indianapolis Colts in 1998. A native of Youngstown, Ohio, DeFilippo’s father, Gene, served as the athletic director at Boston College.
