Report: Packers hire Texas Tech assistant coach

Feb. 14, 2014
 

The Packers have hired David Raih from Texas Tech to their coaching or administrative staff, according to a report by Tom Dienhart of the Big Ten Network.

Raih, 33, most recently was outside receivers coach at Texas Tech, where he also had been director of high school relations. Before that he was a graduate assistant at the University of Iowa for three years, and for two seasons before that was a coaching intern at UCLA, where he worked with quarterbacks.

Raih was a backup quarterback at Iowa from 1999-2003.

Last week, coach Mike McCarthy announced he’d set the Packers’ coaching staff for 2014 with four additions and several re-assignments. The report said Raih will be an offensive assistant, but he might be McCarthy’s choice to fill the open position at coaching administrator.

Jason Simmons had been in that role but was promoted to defensive/special teams assistant last week. It’s not officially an assistant coaching position, but Simmons attended practices and appeared to operate as if a member of the coaching staff.
