The Raiders coaching staff is formally complete. The team announced four remaining hires on Thursday morning.

As reported earlier this week, Joe Woods was named secondary coach and Marcus Robertson was hired as his assistant. Johnny Lynn and Clayton Lopez, perviously held those positions, respectively.

Chris Boniol was also named assistant special teams coach, replacing Keith Burner. Boniol spent the last four seasons with the Dallas Cowboys in the same role. His primary function was coaching kicker. Raiders placekicker Sebastian Janikowski converted a career- and NFL-worst 70 percent of his field-goal attempts.

Marcus Robertson was named assistant strength and conditioning coach after six seasons with the San Diego Chargers. Jon Grieco previously held that post.
