Raiders news: Mark Davis not thinking about 2022 head coach

It looks like we shouldn’t expect much news on the Las Vegas Raiders’ plans for their 2022 head coach before the end of the season.

CBS Sports reported that Raiders owner Mark Davis has turned down inquiries from interested parties (such as agents of potential practice candidates) regarding full-time work as a permanent replacement for Jon Gruden. Instead, Davis is focused on pushing the team’s playoffs and he will wait to worry about his decision as head coach until the end of the season. The Raiders are currently 6-5 heading into a home game against the Washington soccer team on Sunday.

This tactic makes sense and it’s the right way forward for Davis. Let’s see how this season is going before we make any decisions.

Further, it indicates that interim head coach Rich Bisaccia has a chance of securing the full-time job. If he can lead the Raiders to the playoffs, Bisaccia could stay on permanently. Last week there was a report that Davis was evaluating GM Mike Mayock after the season… so it looks like everything will change in January or February for the Raiders with several options on the table.

Davis could make drastic changes or he can keep the current regime in place. It all depends on how the rest of the season goes, which is fair.

Additionally, the CBS Sports report said it would be a coveted job as Davis doesn’t get involved in football decisions, he has paid impressive salaries for a coach and the Raiders have a great setup in Las Vegas. So if Davis doesn’t choose to keep Bisaccia, there should be some interesting candidates on the line over the next couple of months.
