The Oakland Raiders have reportedly promoted Hue Jackson from Offensive Coordinator to Head Coach. Jackson replaces Tom Cable, who was dismissed despite the Raiders 8-8 season in 2010. Jackson becomes the Raiders ninth Head Coach since the club moved back to Oakland in 1995.
Jackson was hired as Offensive Coordinator prior to last season, and the Raiders were sixth in the NFL in scoring.
