Raiders Promote Hue Jackson to Top Job: The Oakland Raiders have promoted their offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to be the team's head coach. Jackson, 45, took over the offense last January and they improved from 31st to sixth in scoring, 31st to tenth in yardage and 21st to second in rushing. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco called Jackson the "best wide receivers coach I ever had."

Shouldn't a Raiders head coach automatically get "interim" added to their title? At least until Al's gone.

Judging from a picture I saw of Al at the announcement, he may already be gone.
