Nick Holz enters his third season as offensive assistant for the Oakland Raiders. Holz served the previous four seasons in a similar same capacity at Stanford.

Last year, Holz worked extensively with Oakland’s young receiving corps, as second-year WR Rod Streater led the team with 60 receptions and 888 yards. Streater set a career mark at New York Jets on Dec. 8, posting 130 yards on seven catches and one TD. WR Andre Holmes saw his first meaningful NFL action and burst onto the scene, hauling in 25 catches for 431 yards.

In 2012, Holz aided Streater, who totaled just 19 catches as a senior at Temple, become one of the most productive undrafted rookie players in recent NFL history. His 39 catches in 2012 were tied for third most among undrafted rookies since 2000, and fourth most by a Raider rookie.

A Bay Area native, Holz assisted on a staff that led the Cardinal to appearances in the Sun Bowl, Orange Bowl and Fiesta Bowl. As an assistant quarterbacks coach, he helped QB Andrew Luck to first-team All-American honors. He began his collegiate coaching career at Nebraska, where he served as offensive quality control coach and video intern for the Cornhuskers in 2007.        

PERSONAL: A three-year letterwinner at Colorado, Holz was a wide receiver and the Buffaloes’ holder for field goals and PATs for three seasons. Following his senior season, he was voted by teammates as the recipient of The Regiment Award, presented annually to the Colorado player that makes the greatest contribution to the team with the least recognition. He earned a bachelor’s degree in communications. Holz prepped at De La Salle High School in Concord and was named the team’s most inspirational player following the Spartans’ 2002 national championship season.
