Coaching career

Oakland Raiders

In March 2017, Vieselmeyer was hired as the safeties coach of the Oakland Raiders under head coach Jack Del Rio.[2] Following Del Rio being fired at the end of the 2017 season, he was not retained by new head coach Jon Gruden.

Washington Football Team / Commanders

In January 2020, Vieselmeyer was hired as the new assistant defensive backs and nickel coach for the Washington Football Team, then known as the Redskins.[3] This reunited him with Jack Del Rio, who was hired as the new defensive coordinator under head coach Ron Rivera.

In February 2023, Vieselmeyer was promoted to the defensive backs coach replacing Chris Harris, who left for a position with the Tennessee Titans.[4] He and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio were fired following a 45-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving, in which the team had allowed the most points in the NFL by that point in the season.[5]
