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.
