I know Marrone isn't going to fire his buddy Crossman but Bobby April Coached some great ST Units during his time here.....

The real question no one ever asks is how have his units ranked since he left here?

Yeah that sucks.  I would love to take a look at Bobby April.  It's too bad he chose not to resign and to remain with Oakland.

Well someone did ask last week, well more like told, (maybe it was you and you're just baiting us)  and the answer wasn't very pretty.

The Raiderz only sign asst. coaches for 1 year at a time.  That's been a sticking point, although they did just give a 2yr contract to 1 of them.

But the title was he didn't resign, then he must still be coaching there!

Ah forget it!

It appears that April is a free agent.  He can sign with anyone.

You can change the year if you really want to follow his career since leaving Buffalo in a huff because he wasn't considered for the HC job.
His track record suggests that was a good move on the part of OBD.

From his Wiki page:

Maybe it means that the quality of players that a coach has to work with makes a difference (contrary to what some believe about special teams)
