The Oakland Raiders said they haven’t hired Nick Warnock, who made it to the final episodes of Donald Trump’s NBC hit reality show, “The Apprentice,” but the team hadn’t ruled out employing him in the future.
Raiders spokesman Artie Gigantino said Tuesday that reports last week that Warnock had finalized a job with the Raiders were “premature.”
The Raiders met with Warnock, 27, last week about selling luxury suites at the Oakland Coliseum, which is a part-time job with the franchise.
For now, Warnock will be working for Jason Binn’s Niche Media Holdings, publisher of several high-end magazines. He will sell advertisements and will be based in Los Angeles.
“No deal has been completed,” Gigantino said. “The way it was left, Nick was going to fulfill prior commitments and when he was done we’d revisit what the next step was.”
Warnock, a native of New Jersey, was among 16 candidates on “The Apprentice” who competed for a high-paying job with Trump. In the last episode, Trump hired Internet entrepreneur Bill Rancic, who will oversee the construction of a 90-story building project in Chicago.
