Hue Jackson Fired: Former Oakland Raiders Head Coach Reacts To Decision

Hue Jackson is pissed. reached Jackson for comments on his recent firing as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders and Jackson responded like, well, a recently fired coach would.

"McKenzie is going to gut this place," Jackson said. "He wants to bring in his own guys. No job is safe right now."

Jackson also said he was told he was not in the plans for the future.

McKenzie is new Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie. McKenzie will be officially introduced in his new role today. McKenzie is stepping into a role held for what seems like forever by the late, great Al Davis. McKenzie is the first executive to hold the title within the organization.

It was believed for a time that Jackson would be retained due to both Jackson and McKenzie sharing the same agent in Kennard Maguire. But today revealed that that was not the case. And Jackson is clearly not happy with how it went down.
