Shortly after Tom Cable was officially informed he was out as head coach, the biggest paper in the Bay Area reported that the Raiders had already decided on Cable’s replacement.
Vittorio Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle credits a source close to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson that says Jackson will become the next Raiders head coach. The Raiders predictably deny that report.
“We have not talked to anybody yet,” Raiders senior executive John Herrera said. “Nothing has been done. This was the decision that had to be made first.”
