Las Vegas Raiders Expected To Hire Big Name At Head Coach

The Las Vegas Raiders have been in the middle of some pretty big rumors regarding who their next head coach will be. With big names on the market like Jim Harbaugh and Bill Belichick, there have been many speculations and rumors stating that the team will make a big move. However, the team looks like they have made up their mind on who they will bring in as their next head coach and Raiders fans are ecstatic about the decision.

Las Vegas Raiders Bring Back Antonio Pierce

Las Vegas is expected to bring back their interim head coach Antonio Pierce for another season. Pierce took over as the head coach in the middle of the 2023 regular season after Josh McDaniels was fired by the organization. Since taking over, Pierce has amounted to a record of five wins and four losses and seems to have reignited the fire in the Raiders locker room.

Pierce has shown that he is more than capable as a head coach in the NFL, and Raiders fans have been calling for him to return all season long. Although his record could be better, he has been able to get Las Vegas to a winning record, including big wins over the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers. He has won over the respect of star players like wide receiver Davante Adams and edge rusher Maxx Crosby, so he has quickly become a fan favorite.

Big Names Still Available

With Pierce coming back to the Raiders, big names like Harbaugh and Belichick remain up for grabs for teams around the league, but none talked about more than the Chargers, Las Vegas’ divisional rival. Both coaches are the favorite to join Los Angeles according to several analysts and fans, which would quickly make the Raiders and Chargers rivalry even more exciting. Harbaugh will be getting an interview from Los Angeles as soon as next week, while Belichick’s future still seems up in the air.

It seems that Las Vegas fans and players are happy about keeping Pierce, and although nothing is officially set in stone, it seems like it will become a reality very soon. Do you think the Raiders made the correct decision on keeping Pierce, or should they have gone for one of the bigger names still available?
