Raiders Announce Senior Executive John Herrera Retires

The Raiders have announced the retirement of Senior Executive John Herrera, who was first hired by late owner Al Davis as a 16-year-old.

“At this point in my career and after careful thought and consideration, I have decided to take a break,” said Herrera. “I’ve had a great run, 35 years over three tours of duty, and have been privileged to work in every area of the organization. I’ve enjoyed the whole ride and cherish my relationships with the Davis family, players, coaches and front office staff.

“I have developed lifelong friendships with people that have come through the organization and my time with the Silver and Black has exceeded my wildest expectations.”

The Raiders added that Herrera will continue to work on special projects with owner Mark Davis.
