Raiders: Hiring process underway

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Monday, January 10th, 2011 at 5:10 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders confirmed they’ve begun the search for a new head coach Monday, giving little else in the way of information.

“We have begun the interview process,” senior executive John Herrera told beat writer Steve Corkran, adding that the club would not be providing the names of candidates whether they be in-house or from another team.

The logical first interview subject is offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, already under contract and widely considered the heavy favorite to succeed Tom Cable.

The Raiders announced they weren’t renewing Cable’s option six days ago, the same day they granted permission for Jackson to interview with the San Francisco 49ers. Jackson interviewed Wednesday (which satisfied the NFL’s Rooney Rule mandating that a minority candidate be interviewed), with Jim Harbaugh meeting with president Jed York and Trent Baalke later in the same day.

Jackson’s name has not surfaced as a candidate as yet for openings in Denver and Cleveland. San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera is believed to be the frontrunner to be hired in Carolina.

Raiders owner Al Davis interviewed Jackson extensively last year when he was hired to be the Raiders’ offensive coordinator and play-caller for Cable.

    I bet Cable gets some decent college offers for his services.

    It would make sense wouldn’t it?

    Did that dork just say the Phoenix Cardinals…

    Johnny are you serious dude?? they don’t face pressure in the SEC that’s ludicrous. That is the pressure conference IMO. Cam doesn’t face a lot of pressure because they’re afraid he’ll beat them running and taht is the only reason. That guy can run for 200 yards if you’re not careful. They want him to throw.

  • djohnnyg

    I have “kin” in Germantown. Clarksville’s near Nashville. Nobody cares I know.

  • aig-raiders

    STFU Priest,

    YOu dont know wtf you’re talking about. Cam played in the SEC champ game against SC and he had all day to throw back there. Why do you think SEC QB’s other than the Mannings dont do well in the Pros. They make good everything down here except for QB’s.

    AIG made that post.

  • aig-raiders

    We are ten mins away from Germantown where all the money is at. 3 hours away from Nashville and we aint country music folks so no interest in going up there.

  • buckeyeraider

    ‘Sup fellas.
    Pretty entertaining and competitive first half. Oregon looks very quick, but the Auburn players just look sooo much bigger, across the board. Very physical.

    Seems like they might wear the Ducks down in the second half. We shall see.

    ………..nobody cares……..

  • aig-raiders

    SEC is all about brute strength down here. They play powerball here. Oregon is all about quickness. Great match up.

  • aig-raiders

    Wasnt talking to you idiot. Was talking to DJ. STFU and C your way out will ya.

  • joker94583

    Herrera is such a lapdog, what a sniveling pathetic waste of flesh. Hue will get more money, more control and a way better owner elsewhere. Why stay in Oakland? I’m sick of Al…

  • priesttj

    Listen at our neighborhood crybaby trying to tell me to shut up. When you take your thumb out of your rearend then try and shut me up.

  • priesttj

    Boy Cam Newton sucks throwing the ball doesn’t he?

    Do you guys have time to hear me tell you about my neighbors’ kids soccer game last week? Well, it’s kind of a funny story, you see, wait. No. Actually it was my brother in laws cousin. Wait, no. Maybe it was someone else (tee hee) but anyway…

    When Life Balance is Like Seesawing with a Fat Kid

  • jmcclain

    That guy from auburn should be kicked out of the game for kneeing that duck in the face when he was on the ground. Unbelievable makes no sense to me

  • priesttj

    what you say means exactly less than nothing to me……….keep talking

  • confucius400

    If someone calls you fat, don’t get angry… just turn the other chin.

    I’m losing track of who’s yelling at who. I went off topic to ask AIG a question. Sometimes I’m curious to know a little about the posters we commiserate with here. I don’t see where the prob. is.

  • jmcclain

    When he has all damn day to throw it not that hard to make easy throws

    It’s a great night to be a Raiders fan. Isn’t it?

    AIG — You don’t have to be a Country fan to party in Nashville. It’s a great place to bar crawl…and the women are hot…and half the places that have live music are Rockin’ the joints…lotsa Blues and harder pseudo-Country played, and you can find something for all tastes. Night see somebody playing for tips tonight, then see them again as big-time acts.

    Yes, my friend…there are some great times to be had in Nashville.

  • djohnnyg

    I think it’s really goofy on this board tonight. We’re all excited about the impending announcement of Bill Cowher as our new HC.

    people from nashville What’s the difference between a cello and a viola?

  • confucius400

    the cello burns longer.

    *********************

    This time they’ll just get together and have some burgers, slaw & fries. Herrera’s in chage of the acquisition so he’ll grab the Plymouth and boogie down to Micky D’s & Wendy’s to get the grub. In the interim, HuJack will be in charge of the drool rag.
