The Raiders have fired Jack Del Rio

Prior to his role with Oakland, Del Rio had previously served as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2003-2011, where he was sacked in the middle of the year.

The Oakland Raiders relieved Jack Del Rio of his coaching duties after their 30-17 Week 17 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Del Rio had signed a four-year contract extension last February after Oakland ended a 13-year playoff drought with a 12-win season last year.

For the past near decade, Gruden has been an ESPN analyst, with constant rumors around where and when he would return to the game. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others.

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

Penn State Faithful Unite In Arizona
Likewise, Petersen is reticent to bring up the 2007 Fiesta Bowl , when his Boise State team defeated Oklahoma 43-42 in overtime. In the second quarter, with Penn State up 21-7 over Washington , everyone got the final highlight they were waiting for.

The Oakland Raiders finished off their 2017 National Football League season by getting the doors blown off of them 30-10 at the hands of the Los Angeles Chargers.

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

This year...ugh. Carr wasn't great. Downing served as quarterbacks coach for the 2015-16 seasons, so perhaps the increased workload as play-caller overwhelmed him, but the difference in the offense's performance from last year to this is stark: Carr more than doubled his interceptions, with 13 this year after just six in 2016.

Del Rio finished his third season as the team's head coach.
