NFL Coaches Hue Jackson and Todd Haley Have Tense Moment After Raiders-Chiefs Game
A week after Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz chased after his San Francisco 49ers counterpart, Jim Harbaugh, Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson had a tense moment with Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley on Sunday.
The exchange came after the Chiefs blanked the Raiders, 28-0, in Oakland. As the two teams were filing off the field, Jackson pointed in Haley’s direction and seemed to want to comment directly to the Kansas City coach.
Exactly what happened?
“That’s between me and him,” Jackson said. “We get to play ’em again. We’ll go to Kansas City here at some point down the road.”
Jackson may have been upset that the Chiefs had attempted a pass play for a touchdown while ahead 28-0 late in the fourth quarter. After that play, Jackson rallied his team around him during a timeout. When the teams returned to the field, Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel twice took a knee to run out the clock.
