The Oakland Raiders have decided to hire Green Bay Packers director of football operations Reggie McKenzie as their general manager, ESPN reported Thursday night, citing a league source.
The report said former Raiders executives Ron Wolf and Ken Herock and former Raiders coach John Madden, who are helping Oakland search for a new general manager, all backed McKenzie for the job.
McKenzie interviewed with the Raiders on Wednesday.
The 48-year-old has been the Packers' director of football operations since 2008, and has been with Green Bay's front office since 1994. He played linebacker in the NFL for seven seasons, spending time with the Raiders, Cardinals and 49ers.
