Raiders fire head coach Jackson: reports
The Oakland Raiders fired head coach Hue Jackson after just one season in charge of the team, NFL.com reported on Tuesday, citing a league source.
Jackson, who spent the 2010 season as offensive co-ordinator with the Raiders having previously worked in assistant roles at four different NFL teams, told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area that he had been dismissed by newly appointed general manager Reggie McKenzie.
The Raiders, who finished with an 8-8 record, had already scheduled a press conference for 5:00 p.m. EST to unveil McKenzie.
Jackson was the sixth head coach at the Raiders since Jon Gruden left in 2001.
The California team has not made the post-season since they reached the Super Bowl at the end of the 2002 season, losing to Gruden's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
