ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders have hired Seattle linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. as their new defensive coordinator.

Coach Jack Del Rio announced Friday that his former teammate with the Dallas Cowboys will join his staff to run the defense in Oakland.

Del Rio and Norton were teammates in Dallas for two seasons. Norton also played with the San Francisco 49ers before beginning his coaching career at Southern California in 2004. Norton spent six years with the Trojans before following Pete Carroll to Seattle.

Norton has been linebackers coach for the Seahawks for five seasons, helping them win the Super Bowl last season and make it back this year.
