INSIDE NEWS: Why Antonio Pierce Might ‘Rub people the wrong way’…

Antonio Pierce insists he will remain as the Raiders’ head coach, but is not expected to interview any coaches outside of Las Vegas.One reason, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, is that Pierce is too impatient.

Appearing on NFL Network’s The NFL Report this week, Garafolo said teams outside of Las Vegas don’t seem ready for a coach like Pierce, who has done a “complete raider job” as the team’s interim coach in just nine weeks.”He got off track a little bit because he went from linebackers coach to coordinator. … He came in and said, ‘I’m going to do anything for the Raiders.’ This is me.

This is how I am.” He rubs people the wrong way because he’s honest about it.He is not the general idea of ​​how a manager should behave. But you know what? Sometimes people think outside the box and hire outside the box.”Full-time coach or not, Pearce certainly captivated the locker room and the fans.

The players have been rooting for Pierce for weeks, and he went on to have one of the most memorable performances in Allegiant Stadium’s short history after Sunday’s win over the Broncos. Will Raiders owner Mark Davis keep Pierce or focus on Jim Harbaugh?
