In Mayock’s tenure, the Raiders moved from Oakland to Las Vegas, playing their first season in Nevada in 2020 in front of no fans, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He and the Raiders went 7-9, 8-8 and 10-8, respectively from 2019-2021.
Mayock was responsible for drafting players such as Clelin Ferrell, Jonathan Abrams and Josh Jacobs. He was also responsible for bringing in Antonio Brown, who was promptly cut after a heated exchange with Mayock. Stay tuned to TGH for more news on open NFL jobs, including the Raiders GM position.
