Raiders fire their coach and GM after ugly loss to Lions

USA Today

The Las Vegas Raiders have fired head coach Josh McDaniels and GM David Ziegler in the wake of the team’s dreadful performance in Monday night’s loss in Detroit.

The Lions 26-14 win in a game that wasn’t at all competitive was the final straw for Raiders ownership. Demonstrative on-field complaints from top receiver Davante Adams and other players were finally heard. The Lions dominated the game, more than tripling the total yardage and gaining 29 first downs to just 12 for McDaniels’ pedantic offensive scheme.


Las Vegas is 3-5 at the time of the change. Former NFL linebacker Antonio Pierce takes over as the replacement coach.
