When the Raiders made the playoffs in the final game of the regular season, it was the first time that the team made the playoffs in his tenure. Before the loss to the Bengals, the Raiders had not made the playoffs since January 7, 2017 when the team lost 27-14 to the Houston Texans in the Wild Card Round. 

“We have relieved Mike Mayock of his duties as General Manager of the Las Vegas Raiders,” the team said in a statement. “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.”

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the decision was made before the playoff game. The team has begun submitting interview requests, Rapoport is reporting. 

During his tenure, the team went 25-24. While he is departing, several of the current Raiders are key contributors from his draft selections. 

Maxx Crosby and Hunter Renfrow have developed into a star. Josh Jacobs and Jonathan Abram are on their way to becoming stars for the team. 

He made two picks in the 2020 NFL Draft that now have become controversial draft selections. He drafted wide receiver Henry Ruggs III and cornerback Damon Arnette with the 12th and 19th overall selections in the draft. 

Ruggs III was involved in a fatal car accident in November. A woman lost her wife in the accident, as Ruggs III was driving at an excessive speed before the crash. 

He was released following the accident.

Arnette appeared in a viral video, where he claimed he was going to kill someone.
