Jack Del Rio has been dismissed by the Oakland Raiders.
Del Rio informed reporters he had been fired following Oakland’s season-ending 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
The 54-year-old coach took the Raiders to a 12-4 record and their first playoff appearance in 14 years last season, but slumped to 6-10 this year.
In three years in Oakland, Del Rio was 25-23. Counting his eight-plus years with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he is 93-94 as an NFL head coach.
JDR announces that he will not be returning as head coach next year.

Either way, this organization is in a much better place than it was a couple of years ago, so this is a fairly attractive job.
