It appears Tom Telesco will be the next general manager for the Las Vegas Raiders.

According to multiple reports, the former Chargers general manager will be the fourth general manager since Mark Davis took over ownership of the team. The team has confirmed the news.

Las Vegas dismissed coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler on Halloween night. Tom Telesco joins Antonio Pierce as the new leadership group for the Raiders.

Telesco joined the Chargers organization in 2013 and through 11 seasons, led the team to an 84-95 record and three playoff appearances. He and Brandon Staley were fired by the Chargers after the Raiders blew out Los Angeles 63-21 last season.

Interim general manager Champ Kelly and Indianapolis Colts assistant general manager Ed Dodds also interviewed for the position. Tashan Reed of the Associated Press noted on X that Davis was hesitant to pair a first-time coach with a first-time general manager.
