Oakland Raiders Have Fired Head Coach Jack Del Rio

Oakland Raiders Have Fired Head Coach Jack Del Rio

"I spoke to Mark Davis after the game and Mark let me know that he's not going to be bringing me back", Del Rio said at the podium.

The move comes after Del Rio and the Raiders agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension in February after he helped the franchise secure its first playoff berth since 2002.

It doesn't happen often that a head coach breaks his own news, but it happened on Sunday evening.

The Raiders finished the season at 6-10 after the starting the season hoping for a Super Bowl run after going 12-4 last season.

Dirk Koetter to remain Bucs head coach in 2018, report says
The Panthers defense had trouble containing the Bucs offense, even though the unit hasn't been known as overly powerful this year. Tampa is expected to fire Dirk Koetter next week and Gruden is their top candidate replace him.

The foundation, apparently, crumbled in a matter of months. Under first-year coordinator Todd Downing, the group appeared to take a step back, particularly Carr and receiver Amari Cooper.

But star quarterback Derek Carr regressed under first-year offensive coordinator Todd Downing, and Ken Norton, Jr. was sacked as defensive coordinator after 10 games. Other marks, like completion percentage and yards per attempt, saw a dip.

Del Rio did some great work in his three seasons as Raiders' coach.
