Raiders part ways with general manager Mike Maycock
Mike Maycock was relieved of his general manager duties by the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday. The 63-year-old leaves after three years in the job.
The Las Vegas Raiders have fired general manager Mike Maycock with the weekend playoff defeat to the Cincinnati Bengals seemingly sealing his fate. Las Vegas lost 19-26 in the AFC Wild Card game on Saturday, though several NFL media outlets have reported that the Raiders had already made their decision on Maycock several days ago.
He was appointed as GM replacing Reggie McKenzie in 2019 and leaves with a 25-24 record. The Raiders are now searching for both a GM and a head coach, after they passed up the chance to keep on interim Rich Bisaccia. The Raiders issued a short statement, thanking Maycock for his services over the past three years.
Las Vegas won their last four games to secure an unlikely wildcard spot.
Jon Gruden resigned from his post in 2021 after it was revealed that he had written racist, misogynistic, and homophobic emails between 2011 and 2018.
