Oakland Raiders Introduce Mike Mayock as the Teams’ New General Manager

The Raiders moved quickly on Monday to change the culture of their franchise, as they announced the hiring of new GM Mike Mayock.

Mayock comes to Oakland from the NFL Network, where he was a longtime draft analyst. He also interviewed “10 or 12 years ago” with late Raiders owner Al Davis.

“I flew out here clandestinely to meet Mr. Al Davis and he took me into this building, and he hid me for eight hours and he grilled me on everything, as you know, and I came out of the building that day with my head spinning,” Mayock said. “Nobody ever knew for a couple of years that he and I had talked about a potential job with the Oakland Raiders that long ago. So, I think the harmonic convergence of what’s happened today is kind of cool.

“I’m jacked. I’m juiced. I’m ready to go and there’s nobody I’d rather go to war with than [coach] Jon Gruden and [owner] Mark Davis.”

Mayock replaces Reggie McKenzie, who was fired after almost seven years back on December 10th.
