Released: Sep 8, 2017
Long time Raiders beat reporter Steve Corkran educates us on Schooled With The Professor about Al Davis. He wrote the book, "Al Davis, Behind the Raiders Shield," which just came out this week. Cork tells us plenty of the inside stories about Davis' successes and his failures. He goes into the selection of Marcus Allen in the draft. He details the hiring of Jon Gruden and how Davis consulted his employees about trading Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Corkran also discusses some of the struggles he had in his final years hiring coaches. Most importantly, he talks about some of the highlights of how Davis made the Raiders one of the best and most dominant franchises in the NFL.
