Ted Gilmore enters his first season as wide receivers coach for the Oakland Raiders. Gilmore coached at the collegiate level for 17 seasons prior to joining the Silver and Black.

Gilmore served as wide receivers coach at USC in 2011, when he was named the NCAA’s top receivers coach by FootballScoop.com after tutoring Robert Woods and Marqise Lee to respective first-team All-America and Freshman All-America honors.

Gilmore spent six years (2005-10) at Nebraska, coaching the wide receivers. He also was the Cornhuskers’ recruiting coordinator for four years (2007-10) and added the title of assistant head coach/offense in 2008.

He coached five receivers that finished among Nebraska’s top-eight career receptions leaders: School-record holder Nate Swift (166 catches), Terrence Nunn, Todd Peterson, Niles Paul and Maurice Purify. In both 2007 and 2008, the Huskers ranked among the nation’s top 15 in passing offense. Nebraska played in the 2005 Aloha Bowl, 2007 Cotton Bowl (following the 2006 season), 2008 Gator Bowl, and 2009 and 2010 Holiday bowls.

Gilmore arrived at Nebraska after two seasons (2003-04) at Colorado, where he handled the wide receivers. Under Gilmore’s tutelage in 2003, D.J. Hackett set the Buffaloes’ season receptions record (78), earned first-team All-Big 12 honors, and was drafted in the fifth round by the Seattle Seahawks. Meanwhile, Derek McCoy added 63 catches (then third on Colorado’s season chart), helping CU to the 2004 Houston Bowl.

Gilmore was Purdue’s wide receivers coach for two seasons (2001-02). In 2002, future NFL players Taylor Stubblefield and John Standeford were the Big Ten’s top receiving tandem with 152 combined receptions and 2,096 yards. Stubblefield went on to become a consensus All-American and Biletnikoff Award finalist in 2004 while setting the NCAA career receptions record with 316. Purdue participated in the Sun Bowl in 2001 and 2002.

Gilmore began his coaching career at his alma mater, Wyoming. He first was a graduate assistant working with the wide receivers and tight ends from 1994-96. During that time, Marcus Harris – the 1996 Biletnikoff winner, a two-time first-team All-American (1995-96) and three-time All-Western Athletic Conference first-teamer – set NCAA records for most career receiving yards (4,518) and consecutive seasons with 1,400 receiving yards (three). And, on two occasions (1994, ’96), he led the nation in receiving yards per game before Detroit drafted him in the seventh round.

Promoted to full-time assistant at Wyoming, Gilmore was in charge of the wide receivers for two seasons (1997-98).

He became the tight ends coach at Kansas in 1999 and the wide receivers coach at Houston in 2000 before moving on to Purdue.

Gilmore lettered two seasons (1988-89) as a wide receiver at Wyoming. He caught 40 passes for a team-best 594 yards and three touchdowns as a junior to help the Cowboys to the 1988 Holiday Bowl. He added 32 receptions for 445 yards and two touchdowns as a senior to earn second-team All-WAC honors. He transferred to Wyoming from Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kan.

Gilmore earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Wyoming in 1991. He was a three-sport standout at Wichita (Kan.) South High School. He and his wife, Jennifer, have two children.
