Sanjay Lal
Wide Receivers Coach

◊ Sanjay Lal returns to the Jets for his third season as wide receivers coach after spending the previous five seasons with the Raiders, the last three as wide receivers coach.

◊ Last season, Lal’s group was hit hard by injuries as starting wide receivers Stephen Hill (four), Santonio Holmes (five) and Jeremy Kerley (four) each missed at least four games. Despite the injuries, Kerley again led the team in both receptions (43) and receiving yards (523). Lal helped in-season signing David Nelson, who joined the team in Week Five, finish second on the team in receptions (36) and third in receiving yards (423).

◊ In his first season with the Jets, Lal guided Kerley to his most productive season in which he led the team in receptions (56), receiving yards (827) and yards per catch (14.8). Lal also helped Holmes record 20 receptions in 3.5 games, putting him on pace for a 91-catch season before he suffered a season-ending injury vs. San Francisco in Week 4.

◊ Former first-round pick Darrius Heyward-Bey enjoyed his most successful season under Lal’s tutelage in Oakland, totaling 64 receptions for 975 yards and four touchdowns, all career highs.

◊ Among the young receivers was rookie Jacoby Ford, who averaged 18.8 yards per reception in 2010.

◊ Lal oversaw the development of rookies Heyward-Bey and Louis Murphy in 2009. The pair became the first rookie tandem to start at wide receiver in the NFL since 2000.

◊ He spent 2007-08 as an assistant wide receivers coach with the Raiders.

◊ Prior to coaching in the NFL, he spent three seasons as an offensive assistant and quarterbacks coach at the University of California. The Golden Bears played in a bowl game each of Lal’s three seasons at Cal and captured a share of the school’s first Pac-10 title in 2006.

◊ Before his time at Cal, he was a quarterbacks and strength, speed and conditioning coach at Saint Mary’s college in 2004, and a wide receivers coach at Los Medanos College in 2003.

◊ Lal also spent six years as the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach at Miramonte (CA) High School where the program won five North Coast Section Championships and one state title, posting a 13-0 record in 2001.
