Josh McDaniels’ Response to Being Fired by the Raiders Was One That Shouldn’t Surprise Anyone

Since being fired by the Raiders last week, Josh McDaniels has not spoken publicly or made any kind of statement, but we did learn a little about how he handled the news when it happened.

According to a report in The Athletic, McDaniels “called his kids home from trick-or-treating” and announced to them that he had been fired.

Maybe there were underlying reasons why it needed to happen that way. We don’t know. It was a personal matter, but it obviously wasn’t that personal or McDaniels would not have shared it with his buddy in Boston media to announce it to the world.

And since the information was put out there, it’s fair to wonder why McDaniels felt the need to shut down everyone else’s fun on the night that he was fired.

Outkick’s David Hookstead wrote down this week what everyone has been thinking since the news broke that the McDaniels family Halloween was canceled…

“How did McDaniels handle his firing on the same day kids go trick-or-treating? Did he just keep his mouth shut and let them enjoy the moment? Did he perhaps just go into dad mode and not worry about it until the next day?

Nope. He called his kids home from trick-or-treating to give them the bad news, according to The Athletic.

Josh McDaniels thought it was a good idea to bring his kids home from trick-or-treating to let them know he’d been fired as an NFL head coach for the second time.”

The other detail in all this is that McDaniels was owed around $45 million at the termination of his contract.

If anything, call the kids home to tell them that.

Let them get their candy, pack your bags and head to Disney World!

    1. Exactly my thoughts when I first heard this report. The man is over the top self-centered. Every Coach needs to be confident and willing to push his ideals inorder to lead but this guy was simply arrogant. It was evident in each press meeting, sideline stature, and interaction. No wonder his players lacked trust and confidence in the man.

  1. As a dad, I could see him wanting them to hear it from him rather than the media… which has been pretty unkind up to this point, including several stories that weren’t true. I’m glad he was fired because it needed to happen, but I don’t feel the need to rub folks face in it. Perhaps we should not presume if we weren’t in their home at the time. Civility is in such short supply these days. And it is just a game…

    Raider fan since 1967…

  2. Now that he has torn the team up from the floor up, mark Davis Jr has made another moron move first a hundred million to John the racist which your on the hook for dead money, for a another one who’s on the books for $45 million in other words it starts at the top$$$$$$$$ and common sense 🫵

  3. Maybe he told his kids, weeks prior, that if he gets fired, they’re all going on a shopping spree and get anything they want. Maybe it was a moment they all celebrated being filthy rich together…….Just a thought.

  4. First things first, his firing was more than overdue. 2nd is can we all just get a grip on life an worry about our life at home not some incompetent now set for life lop of a coaches handling of “his” kids personal and social lives.
