“I’m thrilled that Sandra has agreed to join the Raiders family,” Raiders owner Mark Davis said in a statement. “Your experience, integrity and passion for this community will be invaluable to our organization. From the moment I met Sandra I knew she was a force to be reckoned with. We are very happy to have them at the helm.”

Morgan has a legal background. She was the first African American female city attorney in Nevada. She has practiced as a litigator and has extensive experience in the gaming and hospitality industry.

Crucially for the Raiders, she’s an NFL outsider. She brings new eyes to an organization that has been hit by accusations of maintaining a hostile work environment. By choosing not to hire internally, the franchise gave itself a chance to set a new tone that would lead to better ideas and practices.

As a longtime Las Vegas resident, she also understands the unique region where the relocated franchise is now located.

The Raiders were the first team to hire a woman as CEO when Al Davis appointed Amy Trask to the position in 1997. His son Mark is now giving another groundbreaking woman a chance to make her mark in the NFL.
