The Raiders have a new offensive coordinator, as today Hue Jackson says he is leaving his job as quarterbacks coach in Baltimore to take the job for Oakland.Jackson told the Ravens team Web site Tuesday he will be the primary play-caller for the Raiders. The team has not made an official announcement.
Coach Tom Cable called plays last season when Oakland did not have an offensive coordinator. The Raiders have not said whether Cable will be back as head coach next season. But they have hired two assistants with ties to Cable in Jackson and defensive line coach Mike Waufle. Jackson worked with Cable at California in 1996.
Jackson played a big role in developing Joe Flacco in Baltimore. He will be counted on to do the same with former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell in Oakland.
