Travis Smith is in his first year with the Silver and Black as a defensive assistant. He joins the Raiders after spending a year at the University of Colorado as an offensive technical intern.
Smith, 26, came to Colorado from Santa Monica Junior College, where he was an assistant football coach, tutoring the tight ends and also assisting with the defensive linemen.
He graduated from Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo in 2009, earning his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. His playing career for Cal Poly was limited as he underwent three shoulder surgeries while a player there.
Smith was born in Walnut Creek, Calif., and graduated from Foothill High School in Pleasanton, Calif., where he was a two-year letterman playing both linebacker and fullback.
The holiday season is upon us and The Oakland Raiders are teaming up with the United States Marine Corps once again for their annual Toys for Tots drive. The second event is Monday!
