The Las Vegas Raiders have fired head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager David Ziegler, the team announced late Tuesday night.
“After much thought about what the Raiders need to move forward, I have decided to part ways with Josh and Dave,” owner Mark Davis said in a statement. “I want to thank them both for their hard work and wish them and their families nothing but the best.”
ESPN reports the Raiders will name linebackers coach Antonio Pierce as their interim head coach, citing sources close to the team.
McDaniels, who signed a six-year contract when he was hired in January 2022, steps down after compiling a 9-16 record over one and a half seasons with Las Vegas.
