“I have no comment. Ask the NFL. They have all the answers,” Davis told ESPN.
Davis was unwilling to expand, but his comments suggest that there is more than the offensive and leaked emails from Gruden that surfaced during an investigation into working conditions with the Washington football team.
While investigators scanned 650,000 emails, only Gruden’s missives were made public. The NFL Players Association has called on the NFL to make all emails public.
Following Gruden’s resignation, Davis released a brief statement saying he accepted the manager’s resignation, but did not otherwise discuss the decision publicly until Wednesday.
The Raiders, who had scheduled a day off Tuesday, returned to the training ground on Wednesday under the guidance of interim coach Rich Bisaccia, who will retain his responsibilities as special teams coordinator.
According to Davis, chief executive Mike Mayock will retain his title in the future but will now have 51% of decision-making power over staff movements, with Bisaccia at 49%. Before, it was Gruden 51%, Mayock 49%.
