The highlight of Lal’s early coaching career was 1996-2002, working as assistant coach, wide receivers coach, and passing game coordinator for Miramonte High School, and the school won 5 North Coast Section Championships during this period, and ran a 13-0 record in 2001.
Sanjay Lal broke into the NFL in 2007 as offensive quality control coach in Oakland, filled that position for two years before being promoted to wide receivers coach in 2009.
His biggest credit while in Oakland is the development of high draft pick, Darrius Heyward-Bey. From his rookie season in 2009, he has gone from 9 catches, to 26 catches in 2010, to 64 catches in 2011.
Lal will increase his stock in the league as an offensive coach should 2012 go well for Stephen Hill, as he is a guy that has been described in many circles as “raw”. Like I always say, time will tell.
