The Oakland Raiders continue to overhaul their personnel department under the new leadership of general manager Reggie McKenzie.
The team announced that Jon Kingdon and Bruce Kebric have been fired.
And George Karras and Kent McCloughan are retiring.
More changes are expected later this month when McKenzie plans to announce a restructuring of the personnel department.
“This was a very difficult decision because these individuals have been part of this organization for all or parts of four decades,” McKenzie said. “We’re grateful for their dedicated service to the Raiders.”
McCloughan is a former Raiders cornerback who first joined the AFC West franchise in the 1960s as a player.
“I had talked to Al Davis when I turned 65, and he said, ‘Listen, young man: You’re not quitting before I do,'" McCloughan said in a statement. "I owe him a lot. He was so nice to my family and me. We had some great years, including when Ron Wolf was with us. We won a lot of games. I had the opportunity to work 47 years with one team. I enjoyed it so much. I thought Al Davis was an outstanding person and boss.
"I enjoyed the scouting department, the coaches and players I had the opportunity to work with, and I’ll always be a Raider. I’m going out about as good as a person can go out. You couldn’t have written a better story for me. I have the NFL Sunday Ticket, and I’ll still be watching all the games. I might even come out to training camp. I wish Reggie and the entire organization the best.” For more coverage of the NFL, go to profootball.scout.com.
