Jim Harbaugh, Rich Bisaccia favorites for Raiders job

The Las Vegas Raiders are expected to make a high-profile run at Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, but Rich Bisaccia may have done enough to keep the job, Sportsnaut reports, 

Bisaccia took over for Jon Gruden in October and led the Raiders to their first playoff appearance since 2016. Las Vegas’ season ended with a 26-19 loss at Cincinnati on Saturday, with the former special teams coordinator posting a 7-5 record as the interim coach.

Bisaccia has received support from several Raiders players, but Harbaugh is reportedly drawing interest from several NFL teams. That includes the Raiders, who may view Harbaugh as a glitzier hire as they continue to establish their brand in Las Vegas.

Harbaugh was installed as the +200 favorite to be hired as the Raiders’ next head coach by SportsBetting.ag on Monday morning, just ahead of Bisaccia at +250.

They are the top two clear favorites, with former Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson next at +500.

The fourth-shortest odds belong to Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin at +700. The Steelers’ season ended in a lopsided loss at Kansas City on Sunday night and the team is facing a quarterback change from Ben Roethlisberger.

Tomlin is under contract and has not indicated a desire to leave Pittsburgh, but has been tied to the Las Vegas opening as part of a potential “coach trade.”
