The Raiders made the least secretive news news today. They promoted offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to become the team’s sixth head coach since 2003. He came in and nearly doubled the points and made the offense what is wasn’t in 2009, something that the opposing teams defense had to prepare for. It didn’t hurt him either that he didn’t have to deal with JaFumble Russell.
It is also expected that Al Saunders will be named the offensive coordinator. Saunders was on the staff of some of the more prolific offenses in the last decade (Rams, Chargers, Chiefs, Redskins…ok, maybe the Redskins weren’t that prolific) and will work again with Jason Campbell again. Mr. Davis has ventured a few times in working with Saunders and now that is coming to fruition.
