Oakland Raiders Fire Hue Jackson!

Filed under: NFL, Oakland Raiders — Bill @ 1:28 pm

In a surprising move the Oakland Raiders have fired head coach Hue Jackson after just one season.

Earlier today it was reported by two separate sources that new General Manager Reggie McKenzie had decided to fire Jackson. First ESPN’s Adam Scheffter broke the news, then again it was reported by Bay Area News Group reporter Monte Poole. I spoke to one of my “inside sources” and he too confirm that Hue Jackson is no longer the head coach of the Oakland Raiders.

A previously schedules press conference is still set for 2 pm. today. Originally the plan was to announce the hiring of former Green Bay executive Reggie McKenzie as the Raiders new GM. As reported here back in October, McKenzie was highly recommended by former Raiders brain-trust Ron Wolf.

More details as it becomes available.
