Hue Jackson Fired Only Hours Before Reggie McKenzie's Introductory Press Conference

The Oakland Raiders have fired another head coach, according to ESPN. Hue Jackson was informed he has been fired as the team's head coach, which is somewhat of a surprise.

The team hired a new general manager, Reggie McKenzie, last week and often general managers want to hire their own head coaches so from that standpoint this isn't a surprise. But it was just a couple of months ago that Jackson helped orchestrate the Carson Palmer trade and was the toast of the town in Oakland as the Raiders took command of the AFC West. The honeymoon ended when Oakland lost to the Chargers in the regular season finale and missed out on the playoffs.

What I find interesting about Jackson's firing is the timing of it all. It comes only hours before McKenzie was to be officially introduced at a press conference at the Raiders facility. The press conference is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

So McKenzie's first press conference as a Raider goes from an introductory setting to answering questions about why he fired the head coach.

Hue Jackson Is Fired And Oakland Raiders Fans Don't Like It

The Oakland Raiders decided to fire head coach Hue Jackson on Tuesday, according to a report from ESPN, and the reactions from the Raiders faithful over at SB Nation's Silver and Black Pride aren't good for the team. It seems most Raiders fans do not approve of this move.

A sampling of the comments from Silver and Black Pride, SB Nation's Raiders blog:

I loved Hues attitude and how he turned our offense around too bad we couldnt get a decent DC to help him out. I hope we can get a big name coach in here because thats what its going to take to make this enen remotely look like a good decision.

I know we're turning a page with the death of Mr. Davis. But look at what Hue did with this offense. I wonder what led to this. Really shocked and disappointed.

We missed the playoffs cause JC and DMC were hurt, Hue wasnt great but he wasnt bad and it wasnt fully his fault. The CP trade sucked but it wasnt the main reason for our fall. We cant keep firing coaches like this

Unfortunately, this shouldn't be shocking considering how the Raiders recycle coaches, especially over the last decade.

Hue Jackson's Firing By Raiders Shouldn't Be Major Surprise

It's not an offseason unless the Oakland Raiders fire their head coach and that's what's going down on Tuesday as ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Raiders have fired head coach Hue Jackson. This comes a week after they hired a new general manager, Reggie McKenzie.

At first glance, the move comes as a surprise because most firings take place within days of the regular season ending -- not a week and a half later. Until last week, we thought Jackson was safe but once McKenzie was hired there was concern by some that Jackson could get the ax.

It took a week but Jackson did end up getting fired and to figure out why this happened shouldn't be too difficult. We look back to Jackson's postgame press conference after they lost to the Chargers on the final day of the regular season, and missed out on the playoffs. Jackson was asked what he's going to do to fix the Raiders and he indicated he planned to take more control of the team.

Let me tell you something, I'm going to take a stronger hand in this whole team this whole organization. There ain't no way that I'm going to feel like I feel today a year from now. I promise you that. I ain't feeling like this no more. This is a joke. To have a chance at home to beat a football team that is reeling after being beaten in Detroit, who's one of your rivals and they come in here and beat us like that. I'm going to take a hand in everything.

The problem? Jackson wanted control but McKenzie was the man hired to run the organization. It's easy to see where there could be conflict with a personality like Jackson's.

General managers often want to hire their own head coaches so the more you look into this move, the more we realize we should have seen it coming.
