The Oakland Raiders are sitting at 6-7 heading into Week 15 of the 2019 NFL season but one of the most glaring weaknesses this season has been the Raiders’ defense. Oakland comes in at the top of the list in plays of 20+ yards and 40+ yards. Yikes! Is it time to move on from Paul Guenther? Mitchell Renz, host of the Raiders Report breaks down 3 Raiders assistant coaches that are on the hot seat and makes a case for Ron Rivera as defense coordinator in the video above!

Ron Rivera and the Carolina Panthers parted ways two weeks after starting the season 5-7. Rivera was clear about one thing: he wants to coach again. And if you ask Mitch, he should be the Raiders first call to bring in as the defensive coordinator in 2020 for the Las Vegas Raiders.

Raiders assistant coaches on the hot seat include the Linebackers coach, Jim O’Niel and DB coach David Lippincott. The linebackers with the Oakland Raiders have struggled for years, but O’Niel has done little to turn things around allowing Ryan Tannehill to complete 100% of his passes when the closest defender in coverage was a linebacker. 

Oakland is giving up 6.1 yards per play this season, which has been a problem all season long. It’s not that shocking with rookie Safety Johnathan Abram, cornerback D.J. Killings, safety Karl Joseph, defensive back Mackinton Dorleant all injured. Following the embarrassing loss to the Titans, Jon Gruden promised “changes.” Could that shake up come in the coaching staff?
