Kenny Williams is thinking about something.

“You know I love this city,” he says. “I love my job. Understand that. Get that part right. I love what I do, and I love where I am. But if the Oakland Raiders called tomorrow and asked me to run the team, I would go. I would do it.”

He wants me to write this down. I write it down. He is joking. He is not joking.

“Don’t misunderstand,” he says. “Get it down right. Get it down that I love what I do. Don’t get it wrong, now. I absolutely love what I do.”

“But you would leave to run the Raiders?” I ask. It’s the second question of the interview. Kenny Williams keeps staring out at the field, and for the first time a hint of a smile on his face.

“I’d have to go,” he says. “I’d have to tell people, ‘Sorry, I’ve been called home. The Silver and Black has called me home.’” …

Great writeup!

CSN’s David Kaplan has a 20-minute interview with Kenny Williams (on CSN’s ‘Inside Look’).The video is divided in 4 parts (Part 1: 7:38, Part 2: 4:29, Part 3: 6:06, Part 4: 2:47).

The Oakland Raiders bit is towards the end of the 1st video (around the 6:00 point). Kenny also says that he has adopted some of the Raiders’  ‘Just Win Baby’ mentality and that the signings of Bobby Jenks and A.J. Pierzynski were partly influenced by watching the 70s and 80s Raiders giving second chances to players that had made mistakes in life.
