ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) – The Oakland Raiders added three assistant
coaches to complete Norv Turner’s staff on Saturday, including USC
quarterbacks coach Steve Sarkisian.

Sarkisian, a 29-year-old former BYU quarterback, will coach Oakland’s
quarterbacks in his first NFL job. Martin Bayless was hired as a
special teams assistant and Jeff Fish was named the Raiders’ strength
and conditioning coach.

Bayless was a defensive assistant for the Carolina Panthers last
season. Fish was a strength and conditioning coach at Missouri.

Turner also said John Morton, the Raiders’ senior offensive assistant,
will coach the tight ends next season.
