When is Jim Harbaugh’s press conference at the Raiders? Pump the brakes a bit – The Athletic

Rich Bisaccia will speak with Raiders owner Mark Davis on Wednesday afternoon to make the case for dropping the interim tag and remaining as full-time head coach. Of course, according to many, he can be uncomfortable in the bedroom thanks to the big corn and the blue elephant.

Jim Harbaugh.

Harbaugh has been rumored to be coming to Las Vegas to coach the Raiders for weeks now. After all, the Michigan coach had success coaching in the NFL with the 49ers — where he was 44-19-1 in four seasons with three trips to the NFC Championship Game — and was the quarterbacks coach for the Raiders as recently as… 2003. Once a Raider, always a Raider, Davis likes to say.

The Raiders, obviously, have a coaching opening after Jon Gruden resigned in October. Bisaccia took over and the Raiders went 7-5 with him in charge, including four straight wins to close out the regular season to make the playoffs for the first time since 2016. They were eliminated in a 26-19 loss to the Bengals on Saturday.

Although Bisaccia and the rest of the coaching staff still have a chance to return, they would feel much better about their chances had Davis not fired general manager Mike Mayock on Monday.

So…when’s Harbaugh’s introductory press conference?

There are a few hiccups.

First, the Raiders should interrogate him first. And a bigger one, they should show interest.
