The Las Vegas Raiders aren’t wasting any time as the NFL offseason gets underway following the team’s playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The main focus of the offseason was Derek Carr’s future and a coaching search if the team doesn’t retain Rich Bisaccia, but now it appears finding a new general manager may be at the top of the list.
On Monday, the team announced that they have parted ways with general manager Mike Mayock after three years with the franchise. The team sent out the following statement on moving on from Mayock.
“We have relieved Mike Mayock of his duties as General Manager of the Las Vegas Raiders. We thank Mike for his contributions over the last three years in helping to form the foundation for the franchise to build upon in its future.”
The move to part ways with Mayock could be the beginning of an overhaul in an attempt for the franchise to completely move on from the Jon Gruden era. It’ll be interesting to see what impact this move will have on the team and its players moving forward and whether it officially spells the end of Rich Bisaccia and the current coaching staff.
Although Carr and other players endorsed Bisaccia to be the head coach moving forward, team owner Mark Davis may have other plans, especially with all the rumors swirling about Jim Harbaugh being interested in the job opening if it does indeed become vacant.
