Pierce was the team’s linebackers coach. In his coaching debut, his coaches against his former team, the New York Giants, in Las Vegas on Sunday.

During Monday’s game, star wide receiver Davante Adams was visibly frustrated at one point in the game. He threw his helmet on the sideline.

There was some speculation that the Raiders may try to deal Adams at the trade deadline. However, due to his contract, it was tough to do.

Adams may be moved in the offseason.

McDaniels was hired by the Raiders in January 2022. He signed a six year deal with the team when he was hired.

As an NFL head coach, McDaniels has not been good. He is now 20-33 with the Raiders and the Denver Broncos.

He may never get another opportunity as a head coach. He went 11-17 with the Broncos and 9-16 with the Raiders.

Each time, he was fired in his second season with the team. After going 3-9 in his second season with the Broncos, he was fired.

Now, after the aforementioned 3-5 record with the Raiders, he was fired.
