Reporting from Alameda — Almost three decades before becoming coach of the Raiders, Hue Jackson turned his back on NFL football. And he was paid to do so. Jackson, a tough but levelheaded kid from South Los Angeles, was one of those yellow-jacketed security guards at L.A. Raiders games in the 1980s. His job was to stand at field level at the Coliseum, facing away from the game, and scan the stands for unruly fans. There were plenty of those, although he concedes he was a bit halfhearted in carrying out his assignment.

Hue Jackson has gone from out of the playoff picture to out of a job in a little more than a week. The Oakland Raiders fired Jackson on Tuesday, parting ways with him after one 8-8 season. The move was made by just-hired General Manager Reggie McKenzie, who offered few specifics other than to say it was time to go in another direction. So the franchise is now looking for its seventh coach since 2002. "I want my guy," said McKenzie, former director of football operations in Green Bay. "No disrespect to Hue Jackson, but it's a new era and we want to start anew.

There were strong indications Friday night that California offensive coordinator Hue Jackson would be named soon as John Robinson's offensive coordinator at USC. Jackson, 30, would replace Mike Riley, who recently left USC after four seasons to become coach at Oregon State. Jackson just completed his first season at Cal after four years as an Arizona State assistant. Asked early Friday if he'd taken the job, Jackson said: "I haven't decided yet."

Coach John Robinson won't name a starter until later this week, but LaVale Woods is poised to get the chance to show if he can carry the load for USC at tailback. "LaVale is going to get a lot of action and he is running first right now to get the amount of plays he needs," Robinson said.

Hue Jackson's heroes weren't even 20 blocks away, but he never went to see them. The distance between his South-Central neighborhood and USC seemed farther than that to him. It was--and still is. "I never came over here when I was a kid," said Jackson, USC's new offensive coordinator. "I wasn't one to hang on the fence and watch practice. I didn't know you could. I thought it would cost money or something."

Reporting from Alameda, Calif. — It's obviously an off week for the Oakland Raiders because Coach Hue Jackson was wearing a maroon sweat suit Thursday when meeting up with a reporter at team headquarters. That's not standard attire in the land of Silver & Black. "Sorry about the outfit," Jackson said. "Just grabbed the first thing out of my closet. " The colors aren't changing, but the Raiders undeniably are a franchise in flux. They have a new owner — the late Al Davis has been replaced by his son, Mark — a first-year coach, and a just-acquired quarterback in Carson Palmer.

Being an AFC West fan of any team other than the Oakland Raiders, the scenario you want to avoid is sitting inside your own stadium with the silver-and-black celebrating victory. When the Raiders pulled off a 6-0 sweep of their West rivals last season, it meant they shoved it in their foes' faces on three occasions — none worse than in a 59-14 romp at Denver last October. Threatening to pour salt in the wound and looking to end their 11-game losing streak on prime-time television, the Raiders are back at Invesco Field on Monday night to start Hue Jackson's coaching tenure.

Defeat couldn't diminish the swagger of Hue Jackson. The first-year Oakland Raiders coach didn't enjoy falling to 2-2 with a home loss to the New England Patriots, but as he prepares for another stiff test this Sunday at 3-1 Houston, Jackson continues preaching his plans for the Silver and Black renaissance. "I have an expectation for this football team and I'm not going to back off of that," Jackson told reporters. "We're going to get this thing right. . . . We're not backing down from what the expectation is here by no stretch of the imagination.

Al Davis, the tough-minded owner of the Oakland Raiders who transformed a failing team into a three-time Super Bowl champion and one of the most successful franchises in professional football only to preside over its dramatic decline in recent years, died Saturday. He was 82. On their website, the Raiders confirmed the death of Davis, whose "Just win, baby!" motto underscored his desire to emerge victorious in every battle, whether it was on the field or in the courtroom. He had been ailing in recent years and did not travel to a Raiders game in Buffalo last month, only the second game he had missed since the team returned to Oakland in 1995.
