New Oakland Raiders general manager Mike Mayock said Monday that coach Jon Gruden will have the "final say" on all personnel decisions.
In an interview with ESPN at Levi's Stadium prior to the national championship game between Alabama and Clemson, Mayock said he has "zero problems" with Gruden, who has a 10-year, $100-million contract, as the ultimate decisionmaker. But he added that they will always try to agree before making any moves.
"I think we're going to come to a consensus, and I like a little yelling, a little screaming, a little fighting for what players you believe in," Mayock told ESPN. "But at the end of the day, I guarantee you, Jon Gruden and I are going to know what a Raider looks like and smells like. I don't think we're going to have any issues."
