In a shocking twist, the Las Vegas Raiders have decided to part ways with their head coach, Josh McDaniel, after just two seasons. At the time of the firing, the Raiders were coming off their fifth-season loss on Monday night against the Detroit Lions. When team owner Mark Davis was asked why the move was made, he stated that the franchise was headed in the wrong direction.
“Unfortunately, I had great hopes for Josh and Dave,” Davis told ESPN on Wednesday. “It just seemed we were going in the wrong direction. So, with the trade deadline, I just felt it was time to make a change, time to make a move.”
In the latest episode of the Strike 7 Sports podcast, we dive deep into the decision to relieve McDaniel of his duties and explore the factors contributing to this bold move.
