Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis is prepared to make "bold moves" and "spend big money" to turn the franchise around, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

One change that could be made is firing general manager Reggie McKenzie, according to Schefter. The Raiders are also still looking for a new head coach after firing Dennis Allen early in the season. Tony Sparano has been serving as the team's interim coach.

From the report

On his road trips this season, Davis has been meeting with former Raiders and people not connected to Oakland's front office, gleaning insight and tips about ways to improve his franchise, sources said.

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has been linked to the Raiders, and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport has said there is "mutual interest" between the sides.

Oakland is 2-11 this season after going 4-12 in each of the previous two seasons, but has won two of its last three games. The franchise has not made the playoffs since 2002.
