The Raiders have seen a ton of turnover within the organization over the past year, with a new head coach and general manager heading into this season. However, things behind the scenes have been seemingly rocky for a while.
A New York Times report from Jenny Vrentas, Ken Belson and Kevin Draper details the instability that current and former employees have experienced under owner Mark Davis’s leadership.
According to the Timesmany senior executives have left in the past year with little or no public or private explanations as to why. After Davis hired a consulting firm to assess the organization, former president Marc Badain exited last July, while CFO Ed Villanueva and controller Araxie Grant left soon after. Davis attributed those exits to issues on the business-side of the organization.
