According To Sources, GM Reggie McKenzie Mulling Over Retaining Head Coach Hue Jackson

According to ESPN's Bill Williamson and sources who spoke with ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen, New Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is trying to decide whether or not to keep current head coach Hue Jackson in his current role.

McKenzie will be introduced as GM on Tuesday as he is the first to hold such a position with the team as late iconic owner Al Davis fulfilled most of the duties that normally would be assigned to a GM.

Even though McKenzie has a relationship with Jackson - both are represented by agent Kennard McGuire - it is still a decision that McKenzie feels he has to make. According to both CBS Sports and Fox Sports, McKenzie and Jackson will meet and the decision will be made this week.

The Raiders went 8-8 this season after starting 7-4 and missed the postseason for the ninth time since their Super Bowl run in 2002.
