Raiders hire Jackson as offensive coordinator

The Raiders hired Hue Jackson, the quarterbacks coach in Baltimore last season, as their new offensive coordinator.

Jackson agreed to a three-year deal with the Raiders, according to a league source. He interviewed for the position over several days last week and also was being pursued by the Bears for their coordinator vacancy.

Jackson and Raiders coach Tom Cable coached together at the University of California in 1996. Raiders owner Al Davis has yet to decide if Cable will be back for the 2010 season, though signs have pointed to him being retained.
