Derek Carr's future with the Las Vegas Raiders will likely be impacted by who the franchise hires as its next head coach, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Raiders and Carr will come to a mutual decision in the offseason, which could be impacted by general manager Mike Mayock's future, according to Rapoport.

Carr has just one season left on his five-year, $125-million deal and is set to earn a modest base salary of around $19.78 million in 2022, per Spotrac. His deal's average value ranks 14th out of all quarterbacks.

The 30-year-old would likely command interest from many NFL teams, Rapoport notes.

Raiders owner Mark Davis will embark on a full coaching search once the team's campaign concludes. The club takes on the Cincinnati Bengals in a wild-card game Saturday.

Carr and Co. rallied to earn a postseason appearance under interim head coach Rich Bisaccia. Carr tossed 23 touchdowns against 14 interceptions and put up a career-high 4,804 passing yards this campaign.
