Packers hire Texas Tech assistant David Raih onto coaching staff

The Packers, following last week's hirings of Ron Zook and Sam Gash, apparently added yet another piece to their 2014 coaching staff this weekend, hiring Texas Tech Outside Receivers coach David Raih as an offensive assistant, reports. As of now, the exact position Raih has been hired to is still a mystery, although it is expected to be announced sometime this week. 

From 1999 to 2003, Raih was the backup QB of the University of Iowa's football team, so it's definitely possible that his new position could involve working with the team's recently-promoted QBs coach: Alex Van Pelt. There's no evidence to support that statement, but, like I just said, it's definitely possible.

It doesn't matter at all but Raih looks like he's 21 years old. I had to check; he's actually 33. Breaking in with the Packers and being able to put on his resume that he worked with Aaron Rodgers is going to be a huge plus for him.

I'm not sure why the Packers have so many assistants, I think the Packers are among the top 3 in the NFL in number of coaches. Not that it should be a problem.
