The Las Vegas Raiders have undergone yet another change in their front office, announcing that their club president is no longer connected with the organization. They gave no explanation as to the reason behind Ventrelle’s departure.

Ventrelle’s unceremonious exit

The Raiders released a two-sentence statement on the matter via Twitter: “Dan Ventrelle is no longer with the Raiders organization. We will have no further comment at this time.” It was signed by team owner Mark Davis.

The former president only served in this capacity for less than a year, taking over Marc Badain in July 2021, who resigned right before the beginning of training camp after 30 years with the franchise.

Badain stated that he was resigning because Allegiant Stadium had been completed, and because he wanted to focus on his family as well as new pursuits.

Before he was promoted to president, Ventrelle had been with the organization 17 years and was the Raiders’ executive vice president and general counsel. In this position, he coordinated with Nevada officials for the team’s transfer to Las Vegas, and was involved in contract negotiations with players.

Shakeup in Las Vegas

Ventrelle’s exit is one of the major personnel changes that the Raiders have been going though over the past year. Head coach Jon Gruden resigned in October after reports surfaced that he had sent homophobic and sexist emails, while then-general manager Mike Mayock found himself on his way out soon after.

Their departure came after Badain, CFO Ed Villanueva, and controller Araxie Grant resigned in July because of reported financial irregularities that stretched back for more than ten years.
