The Oakland Raiders have hired Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson to be their new offensive coordinator. This leaves an opening on the Ravens staff and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Al Saunders will get a shot at the job.
With Hue Jackson off to Oakland, Ravens now will interview Al Saunders from their own staff and former Redskins HC Jim Zorn.
Saunders is currently a senior consultant with the Ravens.
I’m still amazed that Saunders is not an offensive coordinator somewhere in the league. His name was mentioned in Chicago, but to this point nothing has come of those rumors.
Despite Zorn’s troubles as a head coach, he knows football and will be a tough guy for Saunders to beat out in Baltimore.
