Raiders adamant Jackson is O-coordinator candidate

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Friday, January 22nd, 2010 at 12:38 pm in Oakland Raiders.

A pair of Baltimore area reports have Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson in Oakland not only as a candidate for offensive coordinator, but head coach as well.

Both the Carroll County Times and the Baltimore Sun reported Jackson could ascend to the top job.

Raiders senior executive John Herrera, however, said the Raiders have conducted no outside interviews for job of head coach.

“I would vociferously deny that any head coaching interviews are taking place while (Davis) is still meeting with Tom Cable,” Herrera said.

Jackson’s contract status is not known, but he was allowed to interview for the 49ers offensive coordinator job last season while under contract with Baltimore. Coach Mike Singletary even brought back Jackson for a second interview, but in a mild surprise, instead selected Jimmy Raye to run the 49ers offense.

In other news, the Raiders are finalizing an agreement with Mike Waufle to return as defensive line coach. Waufle coached at Cal from 1992 through 1997 and with the Raiders from 1998 through 2003. Swept out with much of Bill Callahan’s staff, Waufle was hired by the New York Giants, with his shining moment coming following the 2007 season when his unit dominated the unbeaten New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Waufle was fired following the 2009 season as part of a Giants shakeup. He has almost exclusively coached four-man lines, which seem to rule out any chance the Raiders would switch to a 3-4 defense.

The Raiders made no announcement regarding the status of incumbent defensive line coach Dwaine Board, but chances are he will be in Mobile, Ala., for the Senior Bowl next week, still under contract with Oakland but with permission to look for another job.

The contracts of assistant coaches Aaron Pelch (special teams), Rich Scangarello (quality control offense) and Bert Leone (quality control defense) were not renewed, although it’s not inconceivable they could return unless they find other employment first.

    Dakota takes a lot of heat for wanting Al to draft McFadden.

    where are all the posters who wanted Al to draft Russell?

    where are all the posters who wanted Al to hire Cable as HC?

    because none of those posters have a very good case to present either …

  • Zymurge

    Let’s not forget that “sleeper” pick, Vernon Gholston. He turned out to be a stud too.

    Then again, I think that he still has a lot of upside. But he doesn’t have the excuse of a weak surrounding cast.

    And for the record, in 08 I was advocating to trade down with the Cowboys for the two low 20′s first rounders and use one to take Felix Jones.

    good point. here’s another soon-to-be FA to make a run for then …

    ++++++++++++++++++

    Yeah, but it is all good, because I can just sit back and relax with the knowledge that McFadden will eventually prove to be a good player….it may be with a legit NFL team instead of Oakland, but in the end he will prove me right.

  • Pretty Rick

    If McFadden had the Vikings O-line & Peterson had the Raiders O-line, chances are DMAC’s stats would be a lot better than APs. We all know AP is a better Rb but the Vikes actually have an legit NFL O-line & uses a NFL playbook not an AFL playbook.

    two problems with this.

    #1 you have to have a trade partner

    #2 Al always trades UP in the first round, not DOWN

    at least the peeps saying “draft McFadden” were presenting a realistic option!

    and Dakota is right. nobody wanted Clady until he started tearing it up in Dungver. then all of a sudden 50 people prior to the draft wanted him? get real.

  • http://www.Move2Alameda.com KoolKell

    Hue Jackson HC or OC, it’s still disrespectful to Tom Cable. Which makes his job harder in the locker room.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I took a lot of heat for backing Mike Huff last year.

    I was one of maybe 2 or 3 Huff supporters.

    Now everybody just KNEW he would turn it around. LOL

    bunch of liars & hypocrits! ahahaha

    at least FL Pete has the cajones to still say “cut him” – now he’s the minority

    You were “advocating”? That’s deep, man.

    When I wanted to draft McFadden it was back when we had a coach with a brain (Kiffin) and the o-line was actually good and Russell was supposed to be special.

    Instead, McFadden ended up with Tom Cable, who he actually had to draw plays in the dirt for, an o-line that fell apart thanks to Cable’s support of guys like Harris and Satele, and Russell proved to be worthless at keeping the defense honest.

    But step one will take place once Cable is gone, then we will draft/sign some real o-linemen and with a decent QB in 2010 McFadden will be fine.

    No worries….unless Al fuks it up AGAIN.

  • raiderzmaverick

    I think Fabien Washinggton was a pretty good 2nd CB.

  • RaiderRockstar

    KK,

    Davis wanted Cable to “dominate the locker room”.

    instead he dominated the film room during a coaches meeting.

    he doesn’t follow instructions very well …

    Dear Rolando McClain,,,
    Please run a 4.3 at the combine so Old man Al will draft you.
    Thanks Buddy.

  • Mistabr0wn

    I made the same comparison with Chris Johnson about 6 weeks ago. Swap DMAC with C Johnson and CJ has prob 50% of the yards he had in Tenn. Add to that Cables 3 man moronic rotation of RB’s.

    Like when Davis dominated the locker room by attacking Harbaugh about the play of the backup QB? lol Al Davis is foooked up.

  • raiderzmaverick

    No, Dmac couldn’t do what AP is doing with the Vikings. He is much easier to tackle, and doesn’t have the same vision as AP. AP plows people over and makes them miss.

    McFadden is a lot like Russell in that he doesn’t seem to have the ‘vision’. I.e. he isn’t able to see a lot of things and how the play is developing. He just runs to a place and if it’s open then great and if not, then he falls over.

    McFadden would have more yards with the Vikings than he has here though.

    why would McClain wanted to be drafted by Oakland?

    we got Warren & Kelly at DT and still run a 1970′s style defense …

    After watching him in the championship game, I seriously doubt he will run anything near that…he looked slooooow.

    ….but so was Biekert…who Al eventually replaced with the fast Nap Harris lol

    LOL if CJ was here and had 50% of the yards he had in Tennessee he’d still be a 1,000 yard rusher. Or almost double what McFadden was…LOL

    Davis attacked Harbaugh? Somebody should just knock Davis out. Davis has that old guy syndrome, starts crap with people knowing they won’t hit an old man. Only one way to deal with a guy like that. Knock him the f out.

  • Mistabr0wn

    Maverick, 50% was assuming C Johnson was the featured back here. IF Cable used Johnson like he uses DMAC I would ammend that number greatly! Johnson would probably run over Cable with his Escalade.

  • VanHeathen

    How can Cable ‘dominate the locker room’ when he was FORCED to play an out of shape, unprepared, innacurate QB for the first 8 games?

    Danny Clark was great, but not fast enough for Al, so we got Morrison, now we have a helluva fast MLB that cant tackle and NYG has LMB tht inst that fast but not slow, but he can tackle…

    btw, NYG went to SB with their guy…

    Bierkert and Clark, same story…

  • http://www.ralphlicciardi.com/images/ibew.gif r8eray

    If was a young player coming out of college I would make sure I run nowhere near a 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 at the combine!
    Just to make sure I don’t play for the Raiders!
    That’s how bad it is? Wow…late 90′s early 2000′s when we had a GM it wasn’t like that!

    I wonder why?

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    MB, you’re rooting for a terrorist attack, aren’t you? You wake up every morning, right to FoxNews, to see if it happened, don’t you? You pray for a catastrophe. And, in your own sick twisted logic, for good reason. Because it’s the only prayer you have of Obama losing in 2012…the country being blown to pieces and no longer existing. You still haven’t named a republican who you think can beat Obama, and you never will, because there isn’t one.

    MB, admit it. You’re hoping for a catastrophe, right? You wake up in the morning, turn the t.v. on, and see that a huge terrorist attack happened, the first thought that hits your head is to use it as a political point against Obama, right?

    I doubt he thinks that way…don’t project how you liberals think on a republican…most of you liberals had your fingers crossed that Bush would fail in Ir@q for political gain in the elections.

  • Pretty Rick

    I still wouldnt be surprised if Jim Fassel eventually becomes the Raiders coach. Hate to say it but it could be a smooth transition being that JP Losman would already know Fassel’s playbook. But then again Losman would have to know Al’s playbook wouldnt he? Hmm… almost forgot Russell’s still here. Oh well.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Dakota, do you honestly expect me to believe that people like you and MB don’t wake up every morning praying to god that there was a terrorist attack? So that you can blame Obama? Go ahead, keep thinking you’re fooling us. Keep pretending you want America to do well right now, with a black liberal in the white house.

    I advocated the choice of Ryan Clady two springs ago. I had thoughts about Ellis and Dorsey but once it was determined that they are barely over 6 feet tall it was obvious that Clady was the best pick.

    As for McF, weren’t the Raiders a top five running team before he got here?
    Equating AP with McF is fair in the fumble department. Otherwise?

    MR, I wont disagree with the Fassel +Losman= 5-11
    but hey,,we all know Cable+(any Qb)= 5-11 too.
