When Hall of Fame coach ‘made the best decision of his life’ in retirement

When Hall, who retired after serving as the Raiders’ coach in 2014, retired as the NFL’s all-time leading passer, he said it was the right decision.

He was the longest-tenured coach in the history of the game, having led the Raiders to a Super Bowl victory in 2016.

Hall, in a lengthy profile published on Monday, said his decision was based on the players’ needs.

“I’m not going to get into how I feel about any player,” he said.

“But the way that I view my job and the job I’ve given my life to, I feel very fortunate that I’ve got the opportunity to lead a team and a football team.”

Hall’s final game in Oakland was in 2018, but he played for the Broncos from 2008-11.

He finished with 3,091 passing yards and 12 touchdowns.

The Raiders, who won Super Bowl XXXVI, won four Super Bowls during his eight-year tenure.

Hall played for several of the Raiders quarterbacks, including Mark Sanchez, Matt Schaub and Matt Cassel.
