Remember that annoying jerk Nick from "The Apprentice"?

OAKLAND -- Nick Warnock, a former copier salesman who made the final four of Donald Trump's hit NBC show "The Apprentice," has been hired by Al Davis and the Raiders.


Warnock will be selling luxury suites at the Oakland Coliseum.



Warnock was flown from Los Angeles to the team's Alameda headquarters Thursday for a job interview.


"This is one of the greatest organizations in the country,'' Warnock told the San Francisco Chronicle. "Who hasn't heard of the Raiders, the Autumn Wind, the Silver and Black? It's as recognizable as the Yankees."


Warnock, a former salesman for Xerox, has been offered many jobs in the business world. He's also going Hollywood, landing a role on the NBC show "Las Vegas."


Warnock compared Davis to Trump.


"They are visionaries," he told the newspaper. "They are not afraid to go against the grain, and they are confident and decisive. People like that are an inspiration to work for."


Raiders chief executive officer Amy Trask, a fan of "The Apprentice," was impressed by Warnock.


"After that episode [where he got fired], I called someone else in our office equally addicted to the show and told him, 'I want to hire this guy to sell suites,' " Trask told the paper. "At first he was dubious, but when we saw on his Web site that he had a football background [high school and college player], it seemed like a great idea."


"These are beautiful skyboxes that need to be sold down, and it's my goal to generate significant results whether it takes me two hours a week or 80 hours a week,'' Warnock told the Chronicle. "I don't know if [the show] will help me sell more suites, but it should help me start some relationships. After that, I will have to prove that I can sell."


Warnock is not the first "Apprentice" cast member to make a splash in the sports world. Kwame Jackson, who finished second to Bill Rancic on the reality show, has been offered a job by Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Rancic's award was a high-level position working under Trump.

I can totally see him is this capacity..I hated him on the show and the fact that he is affiliated with the Raiders increases my hate for him just a little bit more.

Yes it is as a matter of fact. TV is full of mindless garbage (sitcoms, sportscenter, dramas, soaps), so reality TV fits right in with the rest of television. After a day of using my brain all day, it is nice to sit down once in a while and stare at a plastic box without having to think and watch reality TV.

I think the final round of people on that show helped themselves out by just making it to the last six or seven contestants. It seems that every week anyother announcement is made about a new job for each of them. It was like watching a really long job interview.

Nick will do a great job for the raiders and maybe his TV honey can get a job as a Radierette.

Maybe this guy will show as much savvy selling luxury suites as he does selling Trump's bottled water...

Thats interesting. Maybe the Raiders figured Omerosa would be able to relate to Raider fans better?

Raiders say they haven't hired Nick Warnock of 'The Apprentice'

The Associated Press
5/11/04 8:45 PM


ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- 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.
