Raiders surprisingly fire coach in huge Jon Gruden sign

Del Rio was informed after Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that he will not be back as the team's head coach.

Jack Del Rio's time as Oakland Raiders head coach did not last long.

The firing comes after Del Rio signed a four-year contract extension last offseason.

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.


For the past near decade, Gruden has been an ESPN analyst, with constant rumors around where and when he would return to the game.

This year did not go as well as they would've like, finishing with a 6-10 record on the season.

Del Rio revealed this news to the media after the game.

They were the upstarts previous year and were hot going into the playoffs until Derek Carr busted his ankle. Over his three seasons as the Raiders coach he went 25-23 overall and 8-10 against AFC West rivals. 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.
