Top candidates for the next Raiders head coaching position
In October, Jon Gruden resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, leaving Rich Bisaccia as the interim and the next Raiders head coach up. We now look to see who are amongst the favorites to take over the next Raiders head coaching job.
The NFL changed the timeframe for teams interviewing new head coach candidates this season. According to a new rule. teams with vacancies can now begin the interview process during the final two weeks of the regular season. Previously, teams had to wait until the day after the regular season finished to begin the interview process.
Rich Bisaccia, the Raiders’ special teams coordinator, took over for Gruden in Week 6 and has led the club to a 5-5 record in their previous ten games. Las Vegas is now in 10th place in the AFC playoff standings and are looking to secure the 7th seed. It’s possible Bisaccia has the ability to guide the Raiders to two more victories over the Indianapolis Colts and the Los Angeles Chargers before the end of the season, and it might leave an impression on owner Mark Davis.
Let’s look at some favorites for the next Raiders head coaching job.
The best option for the Raiders to compete with the Chiefs is to hire Eric Bieniemy as offensive coordinator. Over the previous few seasons, Bieniemy has put the Chiefs in position as one of the finest offenses in the NFL.
In his first term as an NFL head coach, Bisaccia has done a decent job. The Raiders have had a number of difficulties this season both on and off the field, but he still has the team in playoff contention.
Daboll, 46, may be a good fit in Las Vegas if he can build around Derek Carr. Over the last two seasons, Daboll has had the Bills as a top-three offense.
Bradley is the Raiders’ defensive coordinator and had spent four years as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Raiders defense hasn’t been the best under Bradley, but they have developed a strong pass rush.
Today Tuesday, December 28 marks the start of the last two weeks of the NFL regular season and the Las Vegas Raiders are one of the first teams in line to find their next Raiders head coach. Jon Gruden resigned in October after vulgar language was found in emails he sent. Gruden, 58, was in the fourth year of a ten-year, $100 million contract and had a 22-31 record.
