Hue Jackson Fired By Oakland Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie

The Oakland Raiders introduced general manager Reggie McKenzie this afternoon, and it was clear who had their stamp on the Hue Jackson firing. This was all McKenzie. Jason La Canfora of NFL Network and our very own David Fucillo from their Twitter feeds had these details to report form the press conference.

Owner Mark Davis made it clear that McKenzie was his first choice, after some consultation with John Madden. McKenzie then immediately relieved Jackson of coaching duties this morning after making a quick decision after being hired. McKenzie says he wants his guy, and Davis seemed to concur that Jackson's 8-8 record was unacceptable. McKenzie did agree with the Carson Palmer trade even though it probably wasn't a good deal for the Raiders overall compared to what the Cincinnati Bengals got out of it.

McKenzie was clear he wanted to start a new era, and Jackson was not going to be a part of that vision.

To discuss McKenzie and the Raiders, head to Silver and Black Pride.
