LATEST: Las Vegas Raiders Hire Former Foe…

Owner Mark Davis sacked head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler in the middle of the 2023 season as the Raiders staggered to a 3-5 record, benching free agent signing Jimmy Garoppolo and appearing to have little hope for the following season once again.

Again, both of these former New England Patriots were unsuccessful.

Even though Hall of Famer Champ Kelly, the temporary general manager, did a great job, Davis seemed to be missing outside experience and a proven track record in the role to complement former interim and now full-time head coach Antonio Pierce.

Who are they hiring?

Despite abandoning the notion of hiring an internal general manager, the Raiders didn’t have to search far for their new hire; according to Ian Rapoport, he is the former general manager of the Los Angeles Chargers, the team’s fiercest division rivals.

Another Shot at the NFL?

Like his predecessor, Ziegler, Tom Telesco was sacked by the Los Angeles Chargers in the middle of the season, and many, including myself, thought he would receive another chance at a general manager position.

Before being unceremoniously fired, Tom Telesco was considered one of the most astute businessmen in the National Football League, along with unsuccessful head coach hire Brandon Staley. Telesco served as general manager of the Chargers for a full ten years.

In spite of Telesco’s obvious success in the position, the Los Angeles Chargers seemed to want a change of direction from the top when he was fired midseason, similar to what happened to Ziegler. Telesco not only assembled a championship-caliber roster around star quarterback Justin Herbert, but also added players like Keenan Allen, Khalil Mack, Joey Bosa, Derwin James, and Rashawn Slater.

What Next For The Raiders?

The Raiders have a new general manager and head coach. Thus, the organization’s framework has been established for the upcoming year at minimum. Additionally, they have been connected to Luke Getsy, the rather controversial former offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears.

With the exception of a few standout players like Josh Jacobs, Kolton Miller, and Maxx Crosby, who are all free agents, the Las Vegas roster is aging and poor. We’ll see in the coming years if Telesco can perform his magic and rebuild it from the ground up.
