  • Raiders surprisingly fire coach in huge Jon Gruden sign

JDR announces that he will not be returning as head coach next year.

Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio has been fired after a disappointing season.

In three years in Oakland, Del Rio was 25-23. After going 7-9 in his first year, the team jumped to 12-4 last season and reached the playoffs. That means they finish with a 6-10 record in a season with championship expectations.

Forecast: It's Cold, And It Will Stay Cold For Some Time
If you plan on heading out for end of year festivities, make sure to dress appropriately for the cold and bundle up. Another push of bitterly cold air will move into Wisconsin Friday night and linger through New Year's Day Monday .

Del Rio revealed this news to the media after the game. John Pagano, who was on the staff as assistant head coach-defense, took over as coordinator.

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.

But the bigger issue for Oakland may have been on offense.

In the years since she has continued to advocate more broadly, against police brutality and in support of racial equality. Eric Garner was killed by a New York City police officer accused of using an unjustified and unlawful chokehold.

This year...ugh. Carr wasn't great.

"Today was kind of a microcosm of our season", Del Rio said after the Raiders' 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

But star quarterback Derek Carr regressed under first-year offensive coordinator Todd Downing, and Ken Norton, Jr. was sacked as defensive coordinator after 10 games.
