Sport Mike Mayock Never Had Any Power, Now He's on Borrowed Time
Mike Mayock is now in control of the Raiders' roster, but for how long?
Mike Mayock outlasting Jon Gruden with the Las Vegas Raiders would have gotten you some decent betting odds not too long ago. Also confirmed that Mike Mayock remains GM and now has 51 percent control of roster decisions, with interim coach Rich Bisaccia at 49 percent. Was Gruden 51/Mayock 49 before.— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) October 13, 2021 That’s merely one surprising development from the fallout of Gruden’s resignation, and it’s hardly the major plot line. It certainly begs the question, for those invested in Raiders Nation: What’s next for Mayock? On the one hand, the runway is clear. He’s now the unfettered personnel honcho.
Las Vegas Raiders general manager Mike Mayock is likely soon to be joining Jon Gruden in the unemployment line. That's true for a number of reasons, the most important of which came via a revelation from owner Mark Davis.
On Wednesday, Davis told a reporter that Mayock would remain the team's GM after Gruden's resignation, but he also let loose some damning information. Davis claimed previously Gruden had 51 percent say in personnel, while Mayock had 49. Now the formerNetwork analyst would have 51, while interim head coach Rich Bisaccia would be at 49.
Jon Gruden out: Mark Davis needs a stronger GM than Mike Mayock
Raiders need new GM and coach as result of Gruden fall outAnd its been radio silence from the Raiders’ Henderson, Nevada offices.
Just spoke with— Paul Gutierrez (@PGutierrezESPN) owner Mark Davis: "I have no comment. Ask the NFL. They have all the answers." Also confirmed that Mike Mayock remains GM and now has 51 percent control of roster decisions, with interim coach Rich Bisaccia at 49 percent. Was Gruden 51/Mayock 49 before.
Mayock has been the Raiders' general manager since 2019. It's understandable that he might have had about equal say in personnel with Gruden in charge. Gruden had a 10-year, $100 million contract, it's not shocking Davis would also give him control of personnel. But after two years in charge, Mayock now has an interim head coach with near-equal say in personnel? That's ridiculous.
Mayock was Gruden's hand-picked guy, so it's highly unlikely he's left in place to pick the team's next head coach. But the revelation that Davis can't (or won't) even turn full control of the roster over to him more than seals his fate.
