This is worth watching:
“Something that has to be corrected.”— Las Vegas Raiders (@Raiders) February 24, 2021

Shell, who was a superstar tackle for the Raiders, became the first modern-day Black head coach in the NFL in 1989. He stayed through the 1994 season and came back for a one-year stint as a head coach in 2006.
Shell’s words need to be heard. Owners and general managers around the league need to hear these blunt thoughts from a coaching pioneer and you have to love his story about Al Davis.
The Raiders have made a lot of history in the NFL and this is an opportunity to soak in meaningful thoughts from a key figure in team history.
