The Oakland Raiders have had some legendary head coaches in their storied history, and we take a look at the top-10 to lead the Silver and Black.
Over the course of the history of the franchise, the Raiders have had some of the more legendary head coaches in NFL history. Having won three Super Bowls, the organization has put some incredible football on the field, and the men leading the charge have been some of the best the game has ever seen.
We take a look at the top-10 head coaches in Raiders history.
Though Hue Jackson’s time as the head coach of the Raiders lasted only one season, he does make our list of the top-10 head coaches in team history. Having a better than .500 record as head coach of the team is rare, and Jackson could have done even better had he not been fired after the 2011 campaign.
In 2010, Jackson served as a the offensive coordinator for the team, and his offense finished in the top-10 in the league. When the organization decided to fire Tom Cable, Jackson was named the head coach, and he got off to a fast start as the man in charge.
The Raiders started the 2011 season at 7-4, and it looked like they would be headed back to the playoffs for the first time since the 2002 season. However, they lost four of their last five games, and when new general manager Reggie McKenzie took over, he promptly fired Jackson and his staff.
Jackson is now the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, though his tenure with the team has not gotten off to a good start. He has won only one of his first 32 games as the team’s head coach, and the hope is, the team has done enough this offseason to put a better brand of football on the field in 2018.
