The Raiders have predictably denied multiple reports that Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson was interviewing for the Raiders head coaching job.
“I would vociferously deny that any head coaching interviews are taking
place while [Al Davis] is still meeting with Tom Cable,” Raiders senior executive John Herrera said.
Both reports about Jackson came from Baltimore, so it’s not a stretch to say that people close to Jackson believe he’s got a chance for the top job. The Raiders say Jackson was just meeting for the offensive coordinator job.
NFL Network’s Mike Lombardi said that Jackson’s meeting was more “exploratory” and that Cable was set to meet with Davis again Friday.
