Rich Bisaccia gets to be an NFL head coach for the first time in his coaching career. However, it is a tough way that he gets the leading role.

Bisaccia is taking over for disgraced head coach Jon Gruden, who was forced into resigning on Monday amid a controversy involving the coach. He will serve as the interim head coach and special teams coordinator for the rest of the season.

Gruden guided the team to a 3-2 record, before leaked emails caused the end of his coaching career.

The 61-year-old New York native had been with the Raiders organization since the 2018 season. He began with the team when they were the Oakland Raiders before relocating in 2020 to Las Vegas.

Before joining the Raiders, he worked for the Dallas Cowboys as their assistant head coach and special teams coordinator from 2013 through 2017. He also served the 2012 season with the San Diego Chargers in the same role after spending the 2011 season as the team’s special teams coordinator.

He also has other NFL experience with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he worked from 2002 through 2010. Bisaccia and Gruden were previously on the same coaching staff in Tampa.

Bisaccia worked in college football from 1983 through 2001.
