The reorganization of the Raiders personnel department will include the hiring of Shaun Herock, who worked with general manager Reggie McKenzie with the Green Bay Packers.
Herock, 41, is the son of Ken Herock, a former Raiders player and executive who assisted the organization in an advisory role in the time immediately following the death of owner Al Davis last Oct. 8.
Shaun Herock's depature from Green Bay to Oakland was first reported Wednesday by ESPN-Milwaukee, and was confirmed by the Bay Area News Group.
With the Packers, Herock served 19 years in the scouting department, including the last 11 of the assistant director of college scouting.
The Raiders have confirmed only the dismissal of veteran scout Jon Kingdon. The Bay Area News Group reported that in addition, the Raiders will hire Raleigh McKenzie, the twin brother of Reggie, to a position in the personnel department and that 31-year veteran scout Bruce Kebric will not return.
In other news, the Raiders announced the signing of offensive tackle Ed Wang, a former fifth-round draft pick of the Buffalo Bills who last played in 2010.
Wang, 6-foot-5, 321 pounds, was the first Chinese-American player drafted into the league. He was a all-Atlantic Coast Conference second team player at Virginia Tech.
