Las Vegas Raiders Hires First Black Woman As Team President!
We hope this is progress, but we all know there is some political move behind this hire. We are not trying to take anything away from The Las Vegas Raiders announcing they are hiring Sandra Douglass Morgan, but there is always some agenda…
CelebnSports247.com reports that we are proud to hear the news that the Las Vegas Raiders announcing they are hiring Sandra Douglass Morgan as the team’s new president.
This makes Sandra Douglass Morgan the first Black woman to occupy such a role in NFL history.
Morgan said in a letter announcing her hire, obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
I am thrilled to join you as we embark on one of the most exciting times in the history of our organization.
I look forward to meeting each of you in person over the coming weeks.

Morgan — an attorney and the former Chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board — steps into her new role just a few months after the then-team exec. Dan Ventrelle was fired by the organization.
Ventrelle claims the only reason he was let go is because he reported to the NFL that team owner Mark Davis did nothing to address the issue of a hostile work environment.
Morgan joins the Raiders with an extensive résumé — last year, she served as the vice-chair of the Las Vegas Super Bowl host committee and worked with the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
The former attorney joins the Raiders after a troubling year for the franchise — several of the team’s biggest stars got into trouble off the field … and Jon Gruden resigned after he was found to have used offensive language in emails.
