The Raiders have hired a new strength and conditioning coordinator, A.J. Neibel, as one of several changes to their coaching staff, a team source confirmed to Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Neibel assumes a role that had been vacant since the Raiders fired Tom Shaw in December. ESPN first reported the hiring Sunday.

The Raiders finished last season with 18 players on injured reserve. Head coach Jon Gruden, though, termed Shaw’s departure in December after less than a season a “personal matter.”

Neibel spent the last two seasons as an athletic performance specialist with the Jaguars. He previously worked with the Raiders from 2003-08 as a strength and conditioning/sports medicine associate, and also worked on the training staffs of the Falcons and San Francisco Giants.
