My news story about Hue Jackson becoming the 17th coach of the Raiders.
Columnist Cam Inman wonders when Jackson will be fired.
Press conference today at 1:15 p.m., (PST). Lunch at noon (usually very good barbecue for head coaching hires). In the finest tradition of freeloading media, if the Raiders are offering lunch, I’m obligated to eat it.
Ravens Insider Aaron Wilson reports on his Twitter account that Al Saunders, Wilbert Montgomery, Chuck Pagano and Wade Harman are possibilities for Jackson’s staff with the Raiders. For Baltimore, Saunders was an offensive consultant, Mongtomery coached running backs, Harman tight ends and Pagano the secondary.
Pagano, a former defensive backs coach for the Raiders before leaving to become defensive coordinator at North Carolina in 2007, would likely be a candidate for defensive coordinator.
