Damnit! Is Oakland trying to become a competent organization?
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- ESPN is reporting that the Oakland Raiders will hire Green Bay Packers director of football operations Reggie McKenzie as their general manager.
ESPN cited an anonymous league source who said both sides are still working out details of McKenzie's role. ESPN's radio affiliate in Milwaukee later reported that McKenzie had confirmed the news of the move through a text message but declined to comment further.
Raiders owner Al Davis had effectively served as the team's general manager until his death in October.
ESPN says that McKenzie, who played linebacker for the Raiders from 1985-88, officially interviewed with the team Wednesday.
McKenzie joined the Packers as a pro personnel assistant in 1994.
