Raiders give Shell another shot at coach
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Art Shell was hired for his second stint as Raiders coach Friday night, ending Oakland's 5 1/2-week search to replace Norv Turner.
Shell, who hasn't been a head coach since the Raiders fired him following the 1994 season, first talked to owner Al Davis about taking the job last week and emerged as the leading candidate after Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt told the team he didn't want the job.
Shell, the first black head coach in modern NFL history, becomes the seventh one currently in the league.
Shell had a 54-38 regular-season record, leading the Raiders to the AFC championship game following the 1990 season.
The Raiders went 4-12 in 2005 under Norv Turner.
