League sources emphasized on Tuesday evening that Payton, who has severed this year as the assistant head coach for the Dallas Cowboys, who has yet to
re-sign a contract. Has agreed to Raiders owner Al Davis, that he will become the Next Head Coach of the Raiders.
The contractual comments are expected to be about 4 years in length and worth anywhere from 1.3 million to 1.5 million dollars annually. Payton is
expected to become the NFL’s youngest Head Coach.
Of all the candidates that were interviewed for the job Payton was the only one who called back about a second interview, to me nobody wanted this job
and it is going to be a huge challenge for Payton.
