We continue our evaluation of the Las Vegas Raiders' defensive personnel with defensive backs coach Ron Milus.
Milus comes to the Raiders with 21 years of coaching experience, the last eight seasons spent with the Los Angeles Chargers. He is part of the crew that followed new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley from the Chargers to Las Vegas.
For the last four seasons, Milus has served as the Chargers defensive backs coach. During that span, his defense allowed an average of 329.6 total yards per game and 213.3 net passing yards per game. Those stats were good for the sixth and fourth in the NFL, respectively.
With experience developing cornerbacks, such as helping Casey Hayward Jr. to his second consecutive Pro Bowl in 2017 and coaching rookie safety Derwin James to a first-time All-Pro, All-Rookie, and Pro Bowl selections in 2018, Milus can help develop the young cornerback talent for Las Vegas.
In fact, Milus can continue developing and improving Hayward as he signed with the Raiders on Tuesday.
Obviously, consistency is a key when it comes to success on the field. With over two decades of experience, Milus brings to the table his knowledge of Bradley’s style, and the Silver and Black secondary should be in good hands with Milus.
