Report: Las Vegas Raiders fire defensive line coach Frank Okam
The Las Vegas Raiders have allegedly fired defensive line coach Frank Okam.
Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal was the first to report the news.
Okam was hired by Raiders defensive coordinator Patrick Graham just one year ago. The Raiders’ defense ranked in the bottom half of the league in multiple categories, including allowing the seventh-most points per game (24.6) and the highest passer rating (98.8). The team’s defensive line only recorded 21.5 sacks in the 2022 season.
After playing in the NFL for just six seasons, Frank Okam held coaching positions with Rice and Baylor before joining the Carolina Panthers in 2021 as their assistant defensive line coach.
The Raiders have not yet named a replacement.
