8th SEASON WITH RAIDERS
Nick Holz enters his eighth season with the
Raiders and his fourth as quality control –
offense coach. He also served as assistant
wide receivers coach in 2017 and as the team’s offensive assistant from 2012-14.
In 2018, Holz supported an offense that featured a 100-yard receiver
through the team’s first four contests, marking the first time the club has done
so since 2005.
Holz was named assistant wide receivers coach in 2017 and helped in the
development of WRs Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper’s continued success.
Crabtree became the first Raider since Tim Brown to record at least eight
touchdowns in three straight years.
During his first stint as quality control – offense coach from 2015-16, Holz
helped Cooper earn consecutive Pro Bowl selections. Cooper led the team with
1,153 receiving yards on 83 catches (13.9 avg.) with five touchdowns in 2016
and set rookie-franchise records for receptions (72), receiving yards (1,070)
and 100-yard games (five) in 2015.
Holz joined the Silver and Black as an offensive assistant from 2012-14
after assisting on a Stanford staff from 2008-11. As an assistant quarterbacks
coach, he helped QB Andrew Luck earn first-team All-American honors and
finish as the runner-up in Heisman Trophy voting twice.
He began his collegiate coaching career at Nebraska, where he served as
offensive quality control coach and video intern for the Cornhuskers in 2007.

2nd SEASON WITH RAIDERS
Lemuel Jeanpierre enters his second season with
the Raiders as assistant offensive line coach,
bringing eight years of NFL experience to the post.
In his first season with the Raiders in 2018, Jeanpierre helped tutor an
offensive line that featured two rookie tackles in first-round selection T Kolton
Miller and third-round selection T Brandon Parker. Miller became the first
rookie offensive lineman to start every contest for the Raiders since 2011 and
just the 16th Raiders rookie overall to do so since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.
Additionally, Jeanpierre helped produce two Pro Bowl alternates on the line in
C Rodney Hudson and G/T Kelechi Osemele.
Under Jeanpierre’s tutelage, the offensive line helped the Raiders connect
on 382-of-556 pass attempts for a completion percentage of 68.7, a mark that
ranked fifth in the NFL and set a new franchise record.
As an offensive assistant with the Seahawks in 2017, Jeanpierre’s primary
responsibilities were tutoring the offensive line, where he worked closely with
current Raiders offensive line coach Tom Cable.
