Hue Jackson, the name that just will not go away! Hue was first hired as the offensive coordinator under Tom Cable in 2010 but then was promoted to head coach in 2011 after Cable was fired by Al Davis. His tenure lasted only one season, but the season featured the Raiders going 8-8 and just missing the playoffs after losing a tie breaker for the division title.
Jackson was fired after the lone season but the debate on whether he should have been is still ongoing today. He was hired by Al Davis and had a great working relationship with the dearly departed late owner of the Oakland Raiders. Unfortunately for Hue, his relationship with Al's son and current owner Mark Davis was not as great. Mark hired Reggie McKenzie as the new GM, and the new GM almost immediately fired Hue Jackson and hired the doomed Dennis Allen as his successor.
The move was never a unanimously favored one, and some fans have taken their own money to spread the gospel of Hue even today. Via CSNBayArea.com, members of Raider Nation have taken out an ad in the Oakland Tribune to encourage the Raiders front office to bring Hue Jackson back as the head coach for 2015.
This is by no means the first time Raider Nation has bought ad space to show their desires. Back in 2009 they also purchased an ad, one in the form of a billboard to encourage Al Davis to replace himself as the GM of the team. It did not work, but we will see if this time it will be different.
Since many of us do not have good enough vision to read such tiny print as what is shown in the tweet above, here is the ad transcribed:
