Hue Jackson Has Been Fired

ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that Raiders coach Hue Jackson has been fired by new GM Reggie McKenzie.

Despite a record-breaking year of penalties, Jackson kept an offense afloat and almost took the team to the playoffs despite both the starting quarterback Jason Campbell and the starting running back Darren McFadden playing less than half of the season. Their top tight end and all four of their top receivers each missed at least 2 games each.

Hue – like Bill Callahan, Norv Turner, Art Schell, Lane Kiffin and Tom Cable – was not able to make it to his third year with Oakland.

According to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, Packers assistant head coach/inside linebackers coach Winston Moss is being strongly considered for the job. Moss has 24 years of coaching and playing experience, but might want to implement a Packers-style offense, which Carson Palmer is not familiar with.

Hue immediately springs toward the top of offensive coordinator candidates – alongside Tony Sparano and Todd Haley – and could get an interview for one of the open head coaching jobs.
