The Las Vegas Raiders saw Jon Gruden exit as head coach amid scandal in October. The team’s GM, Mike Mayock, is out, too, days after their playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

“We have relieved Mike Mayock of his duties as General Manager of the Las Vegas Raiders,” the Raiders said in a statement Monday. “We thank Mike for his contributions over the last three years in helping to form the foundation for the franchise to build upon in its future.”

Mayock left NFL Network to take the job as Raiders GM three years ago. He also did color commentary for NBC on Notre Dame and NFL games.

Mayock’s tenure ends with a 25-24 record.

The 2019 draft saw the Raiders have three first-round picks. However, the best of that lot was EDGE rusher Maxx Crosby (fourth) and fifth-round WR Hunter Renfrow.

Per Raiderswire:

Among those high pick duds have included fourth overall pick DE Clelin Ferrell and CB Damon Arnette. Top pick Henry Ruggs III is in jail awaiting trial for a fatal DUI crash and last year’s first round pick Alex Leatherwood had a rough rookie season as well.

One 2020 first-round pick Arnette (18th overall) was cut after a video showed him threatening to kill someone while holding a gun. Another 2020 first-rounder, Alabama WR Ruggs (12th), was cut the day after he was arrested and charged in an auto accident that cost a woman her life.

Word broke Monday the team was interviewing GM candidates, which no doubt expedited parting ways with Mayock.

Interim Raiders coach Rich Bisaccia will be considered for the permanent job. The team will look at other candidates, too.
