Travis Smith is in his third year with the Silver and Black as a defensive assistant. He joined the Raiders after spending a year at the University of Colorado as an offensive technical intern.

Last year, Smith worked extensively with the linebacking corps. Veteran LB Nick Roach set career highs in tackles (152) and sacks (5.5). Rookie LB Sio Moore stepped in right away and made an impact, posting 55 tackles (33 solo) and 4.5 sacks on the year. Moore was also named the Week 8 Pepsi Next NFL Rookie of the Week for his performance against Pittsburgh, totaling eight tackles and 1.5 sacks in the win. Two linebackers earned postseason accolades with Roach being named to the All-Joe team and Moore being named to the PFWA all-rookie team.

Smith, 27, 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.

PERSONAL: 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. 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.
