The coaching shuffle continues between the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers.

Reports from Monday state that Raiders tight ends coach Frank Smith will be joining the Chargers staff.

Smith came to the Raiders organization when head coach Jon Gruden made his return to the Silver and Black in 2018.

Prior to Smith’s arrival with the Raiders organization, he was the Chicago Bears tight ends coach, serving under then-head coach Brandon Staley.

Staley was hired as the Chargers' new head coach on Sunday.

Smith is largely credited for his work with tight end Darren Waller, who had more than 1,100 yards receiving in each of the past two seasons.

Waller is said to be one of the top tight ends league right now, right behind Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

The hire comes after former Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley jumped shipped and came to the Raiders last week.

A few days ago, two of his assistant coaches, Richard Smith and Ron Milus, joined him in Las Vegas.

Bradley also announced during his first press conference as the Raiders defensive coordinator that Rod Marinelli will be staying on his staff.

With Bradley yet to finish hiring his entire defensive staff, time will tell if the Chargers and Raiders continue to trade coaches between the two franchises.
