Reggie McKenzie will be hired as the new general manager for the Raiders, ESPN has reported.
McKenzie played for the Raiders from 1985-88, has worked his way up through the Green Bay Packers organization since 1994 and comes with the endorsement of former Packers and Raiders execs Ron Wolf and Ken Herock.
McKenzie confirmed his hiring to ESPNmilwaukee.com without making comment.
Multiple reports had McKenzie meeting with the Raiders Wednesday, and he has been reported as a person of interest since the death of owner Al Davis on Oct. 8. to bring stability to the front office.
