Former Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson has been hired as an assistant with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Oakland Raiders formally agreed Thursday on a four-year deal to make Denver defensive coordinator Dennis Allen their new head coach.
The Oakland Raiders fired coach Hue Jackson on Tuesday after just one season at the helm in the first major move since Reggie McKenzie was hired as general manager.
The players packed up their lockers, coach Hue Jackson summed up the season and the Oakland Raiders spent the day saying goodbyes instead of preparing for the playoffs.
After numerous reports indicating that Carson Palmer will start on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, Hue Jackson may have re-thought his decision after a few practices.
Sources indicate that Palmer will be starting Sunday but Hue Jackson will not make it official till Friday.
“We’re going to win the AFC West. We’re going to do everything we can to get in the playoffs and go challenge for a Super Bowl. I am not backing down from that.”
As much as the Oakland Raiders talked about putting a second-half collapse in Buffalo behind them, they used that loss as fuel for their statement win over the New York Jets.
The Oakland Raiders have promoted offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to become the team’s sixth head coach since 2003.
