The 2021 Las Vegas Raiders are 4-2 right now and with all that talent on their roster, they are looking like a solid playoff contender, except for the fact that they are currently without a permanent head coach.
The Raiders head coaching job just opened up after the man who held the position at the start of the season, Jon Gruden, resigned in shame once offensive emails from his past emerged during an investigation into the questionable work culture of the Washington Football Team.
For now, Rich Bisaccia has been named Las Vegas’ interim head coach based on his tenure as the Raiders assistant head coach and special teams coordinator since 2018, but at some point team owner Mark Davis must find a permanent replacement.
So here we take a quick look at the top-10 candidates for the job.
As a former player and current offensive coordinator for the successful Kansas City Chiefs, Eric Bienemy makes a lot of sense for the job given his extensive tutelage under coaching guru Andy Reid, not to mention the fact that given Eric’s impressive resume, he should have been named an NFL head coach long ago.
Since 2018, Brian Daboll has been the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills and has played a key role in their current excellence, plus given his Super Bowl coaching resume (5× Super Bowl champion: XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, XLIX, LI) he has been there, done that, championship experience the Raiders could certainly use.
The Carolina Panthers’ offensive coordinator Joe Brady has only been coaching in the NFL since he became an offensive assistant in the New Orleans Saints organization back in 2017, experience under head coach Sean Payton that could translate into success for the Raiders.
His two decades of NFL coaching experience goes a long way, plus Todd Bowles has head coaching experience after holding that job for the New York Jets from 2015-2018, and as a former pro player for Washington and the San Francisco 49ers, he can relate to his players.
He was the Raiders assistant head coach and special teams coordinator since 2018 and now he has been named the current interim head coach of the team, and if he leads the franchise to a lot more wins and a playoff run, it makes sense to give him a serious full-time shot at the job.
As a college coach (Texas Tech, East Carolina, and now Oklahoma), Lincoln Riley has four Big 12 championships plus a 52-8 record as a head coach at that level, so it might be time for this talented leader of boys-to-men to take his mojo to the professional level in Las Vegas.
A former NFL player with the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys, Kellen Moore now makes his living as the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator, and though Jerry Jones and Dak Prescott would not be happy to see him go, it could be time for Moore to lead his own team, not the first time his name has come up for such a job.
Many thought Gus Bradley, the current defensive coordinator for the Raiders, would be named the interim head coach by owner Mark Davis, but the former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach and former defensive coordinator for the Seahawks and Chargers could still be the perfect fit.
Dabo Swinney has been leading young men since 1993 when he was hired by Alabama, and since then as the current Clemson head coach he has posted a 144-35 record, won ten Bowls and 2 National Championships plus 7 ACC Championships, a head coach used to winning big.
Anyone who has watched the Indianapolis Colts defense gradually improves knows that their defensive coordinator, Matt Eberflus, gets much of the credit, and with pro coaching experience that dates back to 2009, he has the type of resume that should surely put him in the running for this job.
Time to give this man his own NFL team and let him apply all that insight and coaching experience he has glommed from the best – Andy Reid – to the Las Vegas Raiders who could use Bienemy’s offensive genius to take Derek Carr’s game to the next level and beyond.
