Championship as the goal for the Raiders
Malik Jackson about his new job: “It’s an absolute honor to join the Raiders Tirol organization, and I’d like to thank Coach Herron for his trust in me to work alongside of him on the defensive side of the ball. The Raiders have been the standard bearer for programs in Europe for decades, which along with being in a beautiful city, makes this a dream job for me! I can’t wait to get started and do my part in bringing another championship to the Raiders.”
Former defensive coordinator Jag Bal stepped down as the defensive coordinator for the Raiders end of November. With Jackson, the Raiders have found a solid solution to fill the hole.
