New Raiders GM is making moves in the front office

Raiders new general manager Reggie McKenzie is making more of a big overhaul in the front office rather than on the gridiron.  He announced the departure of four longtime employees in the player personnel department Tuesday.

The Raiders fired Jon Kingdon, a 33-year veteran on the staff, and Bruce Kebric, a 31-year staff vet; they also accepted the resignation of George Karras and Kent McCloughan

Among the newcomers was Shaun Herock, a 19-year veteran of the Green Bay Packers and the son of Ken Herock, a former Raiders player and executive who assisted the team following the death of Al Davis on Oct. 8. Herock was the Packers assistant director of college scouting.

Also arriving soon will be Raleigh McKenzie, the twin brother of Reggie and a 17-year NFL veteran, including 10 years and two Super Bowl rings as a guard for the Washington Redskins.

McKenzie was hired as GM, he stated that he wanted to change the personnel department to the way he wanted , so you can probably expect more moves in that department in the near future.
