Del Rio just finished his third season as Oakland's head coach with a 25-22 record, but that includes a 6-10 mark this season. The Raiders were expected to be one of the best teams in the AFC but instead were one of the biggest disappointments in the league, causing the front office to make a change at the position.
Last year, he led the Raiders to their first playoff appearance since 2002.
The Raiders are reportedly hoping to reunite with former head coach Jon Gruden and plan to offer him their head coaching job along with an ownership stake in the team.
Gruden went 95-81 in 11 seasons as an NFL head coach, being with the Raiders from 1998-2001 while never having a losing record. However, he was fired after the 2001 season and went to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he coached from 2002-2008 and won Super Bowl XXXVII in his first year with the franchise.Back to the Oakland Raiders Newsfeed
