Raiders have “rejected requests” from interested coach candidates – Raiders Beat
The Raiders have a lot of big decisions to make in the coming months, but it looks like any potential search for a head coach hasn’t even entered the thinking stage.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Raiders have sparked great interest in their potential head coaching position, but owner Mark Davis is not ready to consider coaching any candidates:
“It’s been a month since Jon Gruden resigned as head coach of the Raiders, but league sources said the team had not started looking for coaches and had rejected many requests. interested parties, with owner Mark Davis focusing on trying to reach the playoffs this season. “
It would be naive to think that Davis hasn’t considered the training options, but with so many decisions to be made, it will be interesting to see in what order he chooses to execute his plan. There’s still a lot to play, but if the Raiders can compete for the rest of the year, it’s hard to imagine Davis wouldn’t prefer to let one more season go before he decides the fate of general manager Mike Mayock. and the interim head coach. Rich bisaccia.
There have also been rumors that Davis may choose to fit a bit more into football operations. So this will also be something to watch out for.
