Oakland Raiders Hiring NFL Network's Mike Mayock As General Manager

Mike Mayock

Now comes the hard part in terms of trying to turn this season's failures into success in the future, as both Gruden and Mayock will be counted on to continue to revamp the roster. Mayock has plenty of college scouting experience, but he acknowledged he will need help in the day-to-day operations. "I know a lot of people in this business that love football, that study football".

Mayock joins a team with a windfall of choice draft picks. Oakland city officials have sued the team and National Football League over the move and the Raiders have withdrawn a proposal to stay at the Coliseum for one more year.

"Mike Mayock is a media guy, and seeing him jump from the NFL Network to the Oakland Raiders to be a GM is certainly a surprising move", CBS Sports senior NFL writer Will Brinson said on The DA Show.

The third Test begins at Melbourne from Wednesday while last and the final will be played in Sydney, starting from January 3. I think this a very balanced team for this Test and I am very hopeful that they can turn it around and win this one".

With their season officially over after going 4-12 in Jon Gruden's first year back on the sidelines, the Oakland Raiders wasted little time in filling their GM vacancy left after the firing of Reggie McKenzie. However, heading into the draft, the Raiders have three first round picks with a total of eleven selections in their pockets.

The team originally had one first-round draft pick. "Let's get the right answer".

NFL Network reported the list includes multiple minority candidates, satisfying the Rooney Rule and putting the Raiders in position to make a hire whenever they see fit. News of Mayock's interview broke on Sunday. A defensive back at Boston College, he appeared in nine games as a kick returner with the Giants.
