The Raiders announced they have hired former Pro Bowl guard Steve Wisniewski as the team's assistant offensive line coach, the team announced through Twitter Thursday.

"I'm back to my first love -- the Oakland Raiders and working with the offensive line," Wisniewski said. "I'm a Raider for life. I'm thrilled to be working for the Silver andBlack and helping to shape the future of the offensive line."

Wisniewski, 43, was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys and immediately traded to the Raiders, where spent his entire NFL career, playing in 206 games. He debuted in 1989 for the Los Angeles Raiders, and retired in 2001 with the Oakland Raiders.

Wisniewski was a two-time All-American at Penn State and eight-time Pro Bowl selection with the Raiders. He was named to the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team.
