Raiders New Head Coach Odds

On Monday, Las Vegas Raiders Head Coach, Jon Gruden stepped down after emails surfaced in which Gruden had made homophobic and misogynistic remarks, following an earlier report of racist statements about a union leader.

Who Will Be The Raiders New HC?

The Las Vegas Raiders are currently 3-2 and tied for second place in a close race in the AFC West. The team started strong with a 3-0 start but have dropped their past two games. Rich Bisaccia will take over as the new interim head coach. Bisaccia, who enters his 38th year coaching, is confident he can lead this team to much success. However, many are curious if the team will show up this week as they take on divisional opponents the Denver Broncos in Denver. The NFL Odds makers for the game have the Broncos favored by 3.5 points, but many assume the Raiders will not be focused after a week of drama from their former head coach stepping down.

The Raiders aren’t going to give up on their season, but it may take Rich Bisaccia a week to get the team to buy back in. In the meantime, Raiders GM Mike Mayock has to start to figure out who will step in next year.

My Thoughts & Pick

The latest odds are out on who could potentially take over as the Las Vegas Raiders HC next season. Personally, I think the list includes a lot of filler. With the exceptions of Eric Bienemy, Brian Daboll, and Kellen Moore, I wouldn’t be thrilled with my options if I was a Raiders fan. As the season goes on, more offensive and defensive coordinators will emerge as candidates for the head coaching vacancy spot.

The real problem, however, is for General Manager Mike Mayock as the Raiders don’t need a new Head Coach because their team is bad, they need one cause Gruden stepped down. This means Mayock needs to find someone that is willing to take over that doesn’t want to make big changes to the roster, this might be difficult. Mayock may feel the Raiders are playoff-ready now. The team has talent and despite a couple of recent losses, could turn things around and make the postseason this year.

This is why Rich Bisaccia (+1000) is actually not a bad bet if you’re looking to place one now. Bisaccia has been an assistant head coach with the team since 2018 and does have Super Bowl Ring from the Bucs win in 2002. He knows the personal and players very well and as mentioned at the top, has been coaching for years.

Mayock will likely let the season play out with Bisaccia as the natural replacement. If the team makes the playoffs or at the very least ends the season with a winning record, he could choose to wait one more season before making a new hire for the head coach. This actually times out well as Derek Carr is an unrestricted free agent in 2023. Should be interesting to see things unfold for the Silver and Black.
