Raiders Fire Jack Del Rio After Three Seasons

JDR announces that he will not be returning as head coach next year.

The Raiders would be willing to move on from third-year coach Jack Del Rio should the 54-year-old Gruden be available, per reports.

"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 told reporters.

The foundation, apparently, crumbled in a matter of months. They went just 2-6 on the road, unable to capitalize on a season in which they won their first two contests.

Gruden went 95-81 over his coaching career, notching a 38-26 record over the first four years of his career in Oakland.

The Raiders followed that up with one of the most disappointing seasons in the NFL. Derek Carr is the highest paid quarterback in the National Football League, and with 2016 Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack rushing the passer, they have some great pieces to build with. Some of that might be attributed to the addition of tight end Jared Cook, but a solid tight end, in theory, should have made the offense better.

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