Welp. It was a fun while it lasted. The visions of Charles Woodson coaching the Raiderscornerbacks in camp and on the sideline during the season. But this morning, after we wondered out loud if maybe, possibly, could it be that the timing of his leaving ESPN and the Raiders Defensive Backs coach position opening up was more than a coincidence, CWood said nope.

From the moment he retired, Raiders fans had hopes he might get into coaching. But he was destined to be an on-air talent and ESPN scooped him up immediately after he retired. He barely had time to take off his pads and get a shower in before donning a suit and getting behind the ESPN desk as an analyst.
