The Raiders are reportedly close to signing offensive coordinator Luke Getsy.

Las Vegas Raiders found him again. Sports Illustrated expects Luke Getsy, the Chicago Bears' offensive coordinator dismissed on Jan. 10, to be the Raiders' new offensive coordinator.

Kliff Kingsbury withdrew from the competition for the position hours earlier and is now allegedly in discussions to coach the Washington Commanders' offense. Las Vegas questioned Getsy, Kingsbury, UCLA head coach Chip Kelly, former Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt, and Pittsburgh Steelers receivers coach Mike Sullivan.

New Raiders coach Antonio Pierce needed an offensive coordinator who could average 24 points and teach well.

Getsy's Bears team ranked last in passing offense in 2022 (130.5 yards per game) and only marginally improved to 27th last season (182.1), but that's only part of his narrative. Las Vegas is a probable trade destination for Getsy's former Bears quarterback Justin Fields, who played well after his finger injury in the second half.

After Fields returned, Chicago went 4-3 but was competitive every game. Third-year quarterback completed 127 of 208 passes for 1,361 yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions. He also ran 77 times for 420 yards and three scores.

Due to their years together in Green Bay, the soon-to-be-40 coach is well-versed on Raiders top receiver Davante Adams. Getsy was an offensive quality control coach (2014-15) when Adams was chosen, then receivers coach (2016-17), quarterbacks coach (2019), and QB coach and passing game coordinator (2020-21) in Adams' last two seasons in Wisconsin.

Getsy's final two years with the Packers had the ninth-best passing yards average, and his first year as Adams' receivers coach the Packers had a top-five passing attack.

Las Vegas needs a great vertical game and good running game, according to Pierce and new general manager Tom Telesco. Getsy's offense topped Chicago in running in 2022 (177.3) and this season (141.1).
