Las Vegas Raiders: 4 potential head coaching candidates
Two elite NFL coordinators
Brian Daboll, Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator
One of the bigger names on the list, Brian Daboll is an offensive coordinator that has helped mold one of the best NFL quarterbacks. Buffalo Bills signal-caller Josh Allen has seen significant growth while playing for Daboll, as he has the Bills as one of the best teams in the NFL.
In addition, Allen confides and trusts in Daboll off the field as well.
Brian’s exemplary leadership to the Buffalo Bills offense and the locker room is the type of culture any team would be blessed to have. The Raiders could gain yet another innovative offensive mind, with a coach who also has the trust and respect of his players after utilizing their strengths each game.
Don Martindale, Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator
A veteran NFL coach, Don Martindale has been coaching in the NFL for seventeen years. Martindale is one of the most aggressive play-callers in today’s NFL and his exotic defense pressures opposing quarterbacks relentlessly weekly.
In addition, he also has familiarity with the Las Vegas Raiders organization, as he was the team’s linebacker coach from 2004-2008. A return as the team’s head coach would bring an instant aggressive mentality that the Raiders organization lacked under Jon Gruden.
While the above candidates have many years of NFL experience, the team may opt to go in an entirely different direction.
