The Raiders made history Thursday by hiring Sandra Douglass Morgan to be the next team president. The news was first reported by Mick Akers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Morgan is the first Black woman to become a president in the NFL.
Morgan served as Nevada Gaming Control Board chair from 2019-2021, and she will bring a local flavor to the Raiders front office as a local Nevadan.
Morgan’s addition to the Raiders marks another achievement in the Raiders’ already impressive history of diversity in leadership, joining Raiders icons Art Shell, Tom Flores and Amy Trask as women and minorities in leadership positions.
The Raiders are expected to hold an introductory press conference and officially announce the hiring of Morgan on Thursday afternoon.
