Report: Coach Jackson fired


ESPN’s Adam Schefter just Tweeted that the Raiders have fired coach Hue Jackson.
Jackson’s firing was confirmed by Bay Area News Group columnist Monte Poole a short time ago.
There aren’t any other details at this point. However, Jackson was slated to meet with incoming general manager Reggie McKenzie to discuss Jackson’s future on the heels of his first season as the Raiders head coach.
Jackson joined the Raiders in 2010, first as the offensive coordinator. The late Al Davis promoted Jackson to head coach after he fired Tom Cable at the conclusion of the 2010 season.
Jackson said after the Raiders season-ending loss to the San Diego Chargers that he wanted more power and that the team needed an attitude adjustment.
It’s unclear whether that played into the decision made by McKenzie or owner Mark Davis to part ways with Jackson.
McKenzie will be introduced as the Raiders general manager at a news conference today at 2 p.m. in Alameda. At that time, McKenzie no doubt will talk about the decision to fire Jackson.
It’s possible that McKenzie will hire Winston Moss, also a former Raiders player and someone who has interviewed with the Raiders in the past.
Moss currently is the linebackers coach for the Green Bay Packers.

  • Regarding Carson Palmer’s value…. I agree he isn’t worth a bucket of warm spit. F’in STUPID trade. Hue deserved to be fired for that alone, that trade was all about hue and nothing else. The raiders would get most a 3rd round for him. You just not going to find a GM who is stupid enough to give up a first for 32 year old qb

    “Who does Carson Palmer think he is? Trying to meet with me about Offense, when I have sooo much other things to do! Pedis!”

    Your kidding right? Hue was running the whole dang team. dude was busy, he wore to many hats.

    Palmer is staying he is “Ginger”

    Have you seen Reggie he is a “Ginger” too

    why do you think Mark hired him, Ginger power!

  • eastoaklandraider

    Does anybody know anything about this GM I mean really this is his first gig an some of you are all over this guy like he is the patriots or packers former GM this guy is basicly a scout and we don’t even know who he scouted and pushed for or against. Ill save my opinion of this guy until I see the coach he brings in and other personnel and what vision he has for the team. He is a def guy but packers are an offensive team so type of O system does he like west coast like packers or pound it and go deep like ravens bears oh yeah Raiders

  • djohnnyg

    This makes me sick.

    Hue bled Silver and Black.

    Just a shame on a personal level for a guy who put so much into this org.

    I feel really bad for this guy.

    Let’s rebuild for a few years.

    I’m getting old man. Sick of waiting.

    Mark Davis looks like Jim Carry in Dumb and Dumber

    Bresnehan is under contract with the Raiders until January 15th. It’s already been announced that he won’t be retained.

    He was at the facility for a workout. Some of you guys in here would make Chicken Little look like an amateur.

    Ed, you’re a man of sound reason from what I can tell. This is an emotional time for all of us and especially Hue supporters.

    You can’t tell me that the thought of Hue Jackson running the offense of a division rival doesn’t worry u a bit?

    When this new coach comes in and he doesn’t win, we can fire him too I guess.

    Let’s just make it an annual ritual.


    Two things, djohnny;

    One, Hue Jackson has not been hired to be anyone’s offensive coordinator. He could end up in the AFC West, but he hasn’t, so I can’t react to something that hasn’t happened. While I think he’s a good OC, I don’t think he’s necessarily someone I’d fear should he end up with KC or someone else. I am convinced he’s not head coaching material, though.

    Second, the new coach hasn’t even been hired yet. That means he hasn’t lost any games. What I do know is that McKenzie comes from a very stable and successful organization, and he was very instrumental in that success. I haven’t seen anything from him or from the Packers that suggests that changing coaches here would be an annual ritual.

  • fingers

    Yep , Marks got a Bowl cut

  • MiamiRaider78

    Wow, that was eerie. lol

  • ghostraiders

    It sounds like Carson Palmer stays.. take That Mistic.. kiss my Asss!! Lol

  • ghostraiders

    Mark looks like a reject from the monk house…

  • ghostraiders

    Reggie sounds like a cool dude… I’m down with him…good GM. . I like the pick.. upfront with the media. .

  • fingers

    Reggie….I want Great Players…..

  • MiamiRaider78

    Wow, this is great stuff!

    Go Raiders, Die TROLLS and the HATERS!

  • RaiderRetribution

    Reggie McKensie, “I will empower the head coach to hire his entire coaching staff.”

  • 303Raider

    Jus t listened to the presser.

    All RM could say as his reason was that wanted “his” guy. Even Mark said Hue was over his head and did a lot for the organization

    I back my team, won’t say anything. I will just watch us start over again and we better start winning quick. the Nation sold out all 8 games and wants a winner.

    Also, listening to Seymour’ reaction and he was surprised HueJax got fired.

    He better not get hired by KC or Denver and haunt us like Shanny did!!!!

  • luvmarvhub

    He said he wanted guys who LOVED to play football.

    Al thought that just because players played football that they loved football…and he was wrong.

  • Raidernationdave

    Best news of the football season so far. I don’t care what he did for the offense, team, organization, et al, there is no excuse, none whatsoever, for a team as talented as this Raiders team was to choke the season away by going 1-4 and getting their *sses handed to them even AFTER knowing that with a win they were in the playoffs.

  • canadianraider

    to the people who say hue should stay because they almost won the division….it was the weakest division in the league and with our talent we should have clinched it after week 14 let alone last game of the year

  • radiernationdave….team as talent as the raiders??? uhhhh what u talking about? the defense SUCKS… The offense is good but again the defense sucks

  • BiggStanRaider23

    Ok, 1st off, sad to see Hue go but to be honest, & correct me if im wrong, but didnt things go downhill after the pics of him getting the “mani/pedi”?

    #2, After watching the press conference, Am I trippin or does Reggie Mckenzie have that “Big Daddy” mentality? And is that good or bad that he seems like he would take off his belt & start WHOOPIN YO ASS if you get out of line???
    And he look like he can be Suge Knight daddy!

    #3. During the press conference, about 19:41 in, The reporter asked a question about the “direction of the team” & a comment that Amy Trask made about there being “a plan in place”, Mark Davis said something like “I have’nt seen any plans laying around”. Then the lights go out and the projector screen starts to lower…I think AL was there & didnt like what Mark had to say.

    #4…and this is for the 4th Championship to come under “Big Daddy” Reggie McKenzie…He will get the job down within the next 4 years & I would’nt be suprised to see The Raiders in L.A. within that time frame.

    Brace yourself Nation, we got some tough sleding ahead but we’ll get there.

    See ya @ The Parade…in OakLAngeles!

  • raidersnyc

    Finally we are going to join the 21st century and get talent and people who want to play and win. No more coaches that everyone else in the league has pass on or passed over. No more drafts where you have no idea what made Al pick this guy, and finally a football man back in charge of the Raiders.
