Reggie McKenzie Officially Becomes Oakland Raiders New GM

The Oakland Raiders have made it official: Reggie McKenzie is the team's new general manager. McKenzie, a former NFL player, has been in the Green Bay Packers front office since 1994. He held the title of Director of Football Operations in Green Bay.

McKenzie is one of the top names in this year's GM hiring cycle. He's spent the last 17 years in Green Bay working with a lot of successful people, including Ron Wolf. The former Packers GM has ties with the Raiders and likely gave the Raiders a strong recommendation for McKenzie.

The Raiders are now moving to a more traditional front office with a general manager, a role previously assumed by the late Al Davis.

McKenzie will join the Raiders at the conclusion of the Packers playoff run (which may not come until February).

Reggie McKenzie Expected To Be Oakland Raiders Next GM

The Oakland Raiders have found their general manager. According to an ESPN report, the Raiders plan to hire Reggie McKenzie, who interviewed with the club earlier this week. McKenzie comes from the Green Bay Packers and since they're still in the playoffs the move can't officially be announced until their season is over.

McKenzie comes to Oakland with a recommendation from Ron Wolf, the former Packers GM who spent years in the Raiders organization. Wolf strongly recommended McKenzie but the Packers personnel man is a hot commodity all on his own, perhaps the hottest GM name on the market this year.

Owner Al Davis operated as the team's GM before he passed away last year so this is a new organizational set-up for the Raiders. McKenzie will work with head coach Hue Jackson, which should be an interesting relationship.

McKenzie is a former NFL player. He's been in the Packers organization since 1994.
