Congratulations Coach Flores! Former Raiders Head Coach Gets His Due in Canton

Over the weekend, past CYInterview guest, Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis [see here and here], traveled to Canton, Ohio to present former Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders head coach Tom Flores with his enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Mr. Flores was the head coach of the Silver and Black from 1979 to 1987.

During his run with the Raiders, Coach Flores brought the Raiders two Super Bowl victories with Super Bowl XV and Super Bowl XVIII. Mark Davis’s father, deceased/former Raiders owner Al Davis used to say, “Just win baby.” Tom Flores did just that while he was head coach of the Raiders.

In professional football history, Tom Flores is only one of a few people to win a Super Bowl as a player, assistant coach and head coach.

Other inductees into this year’s Pro Football Hall of Fame included past Raiders defensive star Charles Woodson, Peyton Manning, John Lynch, Calvin Johnson, Alan Faneca and Drew Pearson.
