The Las Vegas Raiders have made Sandra Douglass Morgan the first black woman to serve as team president in NFL history.

Morgan served as chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board since 2019 and was previously director of external affairs for AT&T and the city attorney for North Las Vegas.

“It’s the honor of a lifetime to join the Raiders at one of the most defining moments in the team’s history,” said Morgan, a Las Vegas native.

“The arrival of this team to Las Vegas has created a new energy and opportunity that we never thought possible. I look forward to sharing the integrity, spirit and dedication of this team to on-field excellence in every facet of this organization to integrate.

Morgan’s arrival follows the resignation of interim president Dan Ventrelle after less than a year in the role.

“I am thrilled that Sandra has agreed to join the Raiders family,” said Raiders owner Mark Davis. “Her experience, integrity and passion for this community will be invaluable to our organization.

“From the moment I met Sandra, I knew she was a force to be reckoned with. We are extremely lucky to have her at the helm.”

The Raiders previously hired the league’s first Spanish head coach in Tom Flores, the first black coach of the modern era in Art Shell and the first female CEO in Amy Trask.
