Jack Del Rio Fired by Raiders Amid Jon Gruden Rumors

The Oakland Raiders have chosen not to retain head coach Jack Del Rio following the 2017 year, Del Rio himself announced following the team's 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

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

During a 6-10 finish in 2017 that resulted in a third-place finish in the AFC West, the Raiders struggled under offensive coordinator Todd Downing, fueled by a mediocre passing attack and a ground game that lingered near the bottom of the National Football League rankings all season despite the Raiders' big-money commitments to offensive linemen Kelechi Osemele, Gabe Jackson and Donald Penn.

Tehran Governor's deputy for security declared the arrest of a number of people who had meant to launch a protest. However, he noted that a call for "No to high prices" protests had been circulated on the messaging app Telegram.

"He told me he loved me and appreciated all I did to get this program going in the right direction, but that he felt the need to change", Del Rio said.

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

Over the course of 12 seasons as a head coach in the NFL, Del Rio has gone a combined 93-94. 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.
