Raiders head coach wants the training facility up to par

According to Scott Bair of, Del Rio said he hopes to be able to update the team’s training facility in Alameda, to bring it up to modern NFL standards.

“It was kind of like how I felt about taking the job,” Del Rio said. “I knew there was work to be done, and I’m excited about having the opportunity to mold this place and make an impact.”

The first order of business is upgrading the weight room and practice fields. The fields are in better shape since General Manager Reggie McKenzie was hired in 2012, but more work is being done.

“We’ve got some plans that you’ll see unfold with the weight room and the fields,” Del Rio said, “that the players are going to be very excited about when they get back. . . .

“We want to make sure that everything we’re doing every day gives us an opportunity to win our division and be in position to win championships.”

This is smart, because players will be excited to suit up for a team who has a nice facility.
