Jim Machalczik, ever so briefly UW's offensive coordinator and offensive line coach, explained to his hometown paper -- the Peninsula Daily News -- why he jumped to the Oakland Raiders.
"It's hard to break into the NFL," he said. "And you usually break in as the offensive line assistant coach. But I was offered the offensive line head coaching position. I couldn't pass it up."
He also said his family likes the Bay Area, where he was a coach at Cal for the previous six seasons.
