New Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson confirmed Tuesday that Tom Cable is no longer calling plays for the Silver and Black.
“I’m hired as the offensive coordinator, and I’ll be the primary
play-caller,” Jackson said to the Ravens’ team website. “That’s my role. It’s a chance to go out
and assist the head coach and be the best offense we can be.”
With Jackson in place, the future of quarterbacks coach Paul Hackett is in doubt. The Oakland Tribune writes that Hackett hasn’t been seen with the Raiders at the Senior Bowl. Hackett had some “blunt reviews” of JaMarcus Russell that may not have sat well with Al Davis.
Then again, Cable was rather dismissive of Russell publicly and remains on the job.
