Raiders Can Hue Jackson in Surprising Move
According to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter via Twitter, the Oakland Raiders have fired head coach Hue Jackson. Jackson was reportedly fighting a losing battle for power, while the front office was searching for a new GM.
Oakalnd finished the 2011 season at 8-8 under Jackson and missed the playoffs despite an encouraging 7-4 start. Jackson was a sound offensive mind and turned the Raiders back into a legit playoff contender before their downward spiral to end the year.
