Raiders' Antonio Pierce Retained as Permanent Head Coach

The Las Vegas Raiders will keep Antonio Pierce on staff as their full-time head coach.

Pierce took over the role of Interim Head Coach just hours after the Raiders lost to the Detroit Lions on Oct. 30.

In his nine games at the helm, Pierce led Las Vegas to a 5-4 record, which included three divisional wins -- a record-setting 63-21 blowout over the Los Angeles Chargers, a Christmas Day victory over the defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, at Arrowhead Stadium, and a season finale win against the Denver Broncos. All three games were won without the Raiders' 2022 rushing champion, running back Josh Jacobs.

Pierce, who had previously served as the team's linebackers coach, won over the support of his players, who seemed to only get better under his reign. He also earned much of Raider Nation's praise to the point where, at the end of the season's final game, the home crowd was chanting "AP," despite missing out on the postseason with a losing record.
