Raiders CEO Amy Trask and Al Davis’ son, Mark Davis, will search for a director of football operations or a general manager, possibly both according to Vittorio Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle.
In the meantime, first-year coach Hue Jackson will make personnel decisions, something he said Monday that he is ready to do. Who is on the Raiders’ list? Calls around the league provide a rough list to start with, and one name that kept popping up was Tom Gamble, 49ers director of player personnel. Gamble, who was formerly the team’s director of pro personnel since 2005, was a Davis favorite who some say Davis wanted to hire as a general manager a few years back.
