Josh McDaniels’ stint as head coach has had a terrible 2-7 start, but Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis isn’t ready to close the business, endorsing the troubled coach after Sunday’s defeat to the Colts.
As for Josh, I don’t have any problems, Davis told the media on Monday. “I’m learning a lot more about him. He’s doing a great job, in my opinion. After a thorough investigation, we have identified the individual we think can lead the Raiders to success.” The Raiders, who had postseason hopes going into the season, have broken down. They’ve lost large leads, been a disorganized team, and were shut out by a three-win New Orleans team. Despite the difficulties, Davis made an effort to dispel speculations that McDaniels may quit in Vegas after only one season.
