Former Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Al Saunders will remain with team, a league source said Wednesday.

The Raiders hired Houston Texans quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp as their new offensive coordinator last week, and Saunders will remain on the team's staff after seeing Dennis Allen replace Hue Jackson as head coach.
Saunders will serve as a senior assistant and is under contract through the 2013 season.
