Longtime Raiders president Marc Badain has resigned, per a club announcement. On Monday, owner Mark Davis issued a statement to thank Badain for his time with the team.
“Today I have accepted Marc Badain’s resignation as President of the Las Vegas Raiders,” Davis said. “Marc has been an integral part of the Raider Family for 30 years. Rising from a training camp driver to president of the entire organization. His efforts in helping to build the most magnificent stadium in the sports and entertainment capital of the world will never be forgotten. I wish Marc, his wife Amy, daughter Ali, and sons Bernie and Zach all the best in whatever the future holds. Once a Raider always a Raider.”
Badain has been with the Raiders in some capacity since 1991. In 2013, after Amy Trask resigned, he was named interim president. Then, in 2015, the interim label was removed. Badain mostly served the business side where he helped orchestrate the team’s move to Las Vegas.
Given the Raiders’ history of internal drama, there could be more to the story. For now, all we know is that Badain is out, with team EVP Dan Ventrelle replacing him in an interim capacity.
