Raiders fire Jack Del Rio

Raiders fire Jack Del Rio

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.

The firing comes after Del Rio signed a four-year contract extension last offseason. After going 7-9 in his first year, the team jumped to 12-4 last season and reached the playoffs.

Davis' decision to part ways with Del Rio also gives credence to the "grumors" that began swirling on Saturday night that Davis wanted to bring Jon Gruden back to the organization. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others. Stories about Gruden, who hasn't coached in a decade, returning to the sideline have become an annual tradition, but perhaps this time there's actually some traction to them. They went just 2-6 on the road, unable to capitalize on a season in which they won their first two contests.

Del Rio revealed this news to the media after the game. However, the pieces are in place for the Raiders to get back to the consistent success they have maintained throughout most of the franchise's history. The offense, including Derek Carr, performed poorly throughout the season. Other marks, like completion percentage and yards per attempt, saw a dip.

"It was an honor for me to coach this team.this is a results based business", Del Rio told the media.
