The 1963 Oakland Raiders season was the team's fourth in Oakland. The campaign saw the team attempt to improve upon its abysmal 1962 record of 1-13. In his first year with the organization, Raiders legend Al Davis replaced the team's original gold and black uniforms with the current "silver and black" scheme. Under his leadership, the Raiders stunned the rest of the AFL by winning ten games. They finished with a record of 10-4, which was good for second place in the Western Conference. For his role in the Raiders' miraculous turnaround, Al Davis was named the AFL's "Coach of the Year".
