  • Raiders surprisingly fire coach in huge Jon Gruden sign

I take a lot every year from coaches, some others.

Jack Del Rio's run with the Raiders is over.

Del Rio was sacked just one year after leading the team to a 12-4 record and the Raiders' first playoff berth in well over a decade.

Del Rio signed a three-year contract extension following last year's playoff season.




Del Rio revealed this news to the media after the game. They entered 2017 with high expectations but completely flopped, going just 6-10 while disappointing across the board. 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.

Del Rio said owner Mark Davis informed him of his firing after Sunday's game.

Amari Cooper, who had a Pro Bowl season in 2016, had a significant drop in his output, as did Michael Crabtree; past year, that pair combined for over 2,100 receiving yards on 172 catches.

This was Del Rio's second try as a head coach after spending nine seasons with the Jaguars from 2003-2011.
