Raiders hire Waufle to coach defensive line

The Raiders hired Mike Waufle as their defensive line coach, according to a league source.

Waufle interviewed for the job earlier this week. He worked for Raiders owner Al Davis as the team’s defensive line coach from 1998 to 2003.

Waufle was the Giants’ defensive line coach from 2004 to 2009, but he was fired at the end of this season.

UPDATE: The Raiders confirmed the hire Friday night.
