The Las Vegas Raiders have chosen Sandra Douglass Morgan to be the team’s new president. Morgan most recently served as the chairwoman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board from 2019 through 2021.
Morgan said she is “thrilled” to join the team during what she called “one of the most exciting times in the history” of the storied franchise.
The move is especially noteworthy for the NFL, as Morgan is now the first black woman to be appointed as a team president in the league’s history. She was also the first black woman to lead the NGCB.
