Three high-profile departures from the Las Vegas Raiders are reportedly linked to financial irregularities, according to Front Office Sports.

The team has lost three key members of its front office over the past couple months, including president Marc Badain, controller Araxie Grant and CFO Ed Villanueva. The three reportedly left after the team discovered "significant financial irregularities that allegedly stretched back more than a decade," according to FOS. 

Badain, who had been with the organization for 30 years, resigned in July. Raiders owner Mark Davis released a statement following Badain's resignation.

In August, it was revealed that Grant and Villanueva left the organization a month before Badain resigned.

The team also lost senior vice president of strategy and business development Brandon Doll in August. Doll's departure is reportedly not linked to the financial irregularities, according to FOS.

The Raiders have reportedly launched an internal investigation to look into the situation. The investigation is reportedly being assisted by an outside legal team.
