Oakland Raiders Press Conference: Hue Jackson Firing Likely To Be Among Topics Discussed

The Oakland Raiders have reportedly fired head coach Hue Jackson a few hours before new GM Reggie McKenzie is set to be introduced in a 2:00pm PT press conference. The press conference will be broadcast live on CSN California, with coverage anchored by CSN anchor/reporter Jim Kozimor and CSNCalifornia.com's Senior Insider Ray Ratto. You can view the stream live below or at CSNBayArea.com.

The firing is both a bit of a surprise and not surprising at all. Talk recently seemed to indicate Hue Jackson was going to stay on as coach under the new regime. However, it would appear as though new GM Reggie McKenzie has decided he wants to start fresh. Hue Jackson did some great things for the Raiders in spite of numerous injuries, but when a new executive takes over, changes often come fast and furious.

McKenzie will get a chance to address the reports of Jackson's dismissal and will likely get plenty of questions about possible replacements. Packers LB/Assistant Head Coach Winston Moss is one of the names already out there, and plenty more will likely show up.
