Raiders close to removing the interim tag, will reportedly make Antonio Pierce their new permanent head coach

Jan 19, 2024

Antonio Pierce will be an inspirational story to every interim head coach for the foreseeable future.

He and the Las Vegas Raiders are working to finalize a deal for him to assume the full-time head coach title, according to multiple reports Friday.

If you get a chance to coach an NFL team for a part of a season, you have a shot to impress. Pierce certainly did. The Raiders responded to him and a strong half-season as interim coach led Pierce to get the job on a permanent basis.

Pierce went 5-4 as interim coach and had fans chanting for owner Mark Davis to hire him, Raiders players throwing their support behind him and Raiders legends coming back and stumping for him too. He energized the franchise and seemed to change the culture around the organization.
