Clinkscales joins Raiders front office

One day after the Oakland Raiders did some front office shuffling, the club has hired New York Jets director of college scouting Joey Clinkscales to a position in their front office.

The New York Daily News confirmed the move that Clinkscales, who has been in the Jets front office for 17 years, will be heading to Oakland.

Clinkscales and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie have been close friends for a long time and were college teammates at the University of Tennessee.

On Tuesday, the Raiders announced that Al Davis-Era front office members Kent McCloughan, Jon Kingdon, George Karras and Bruce Kebric were no longer with the organization. Kingdon's departure had been previously reported.
