Raiders coaching search poll: Should Patrick Graham be considered?

Could defensive coordinator be option for 2024?

There is so much focus on the chances of Las Vegas Raiders interim head coach Antonio Pierce becoming the team’s full-time coach in 2024 and for good reason.

Pierce is 3-3 as the team’s coach (he replaced the fired Josh McDaniels in Week 9). Players enjoy playing for Peirce and have spoken up for his behalf of getting the job come January.

But he may not be the only worthy candidate on owner Mark Davis’ current staff. The Raiders’ defense has made big strides and much credit should go to defensive coordinator Patrick Graham for that.

The unit is allowing 20 points a game, which is tied for the ninth best mark in the league. Also, the Raiders have 19 takeaways, which is their highest total in seven years.

Graham came to the Raiders in 2021 as a potential NFL head coach and he might get some interviews after this season. So, Davis might want to put Graham on his list along with Pierce.

How do you feel about that?
