Raiders fire Jack Del Rio

Oakland has been circling Gruden like a hawk since Saturday when NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Raiders would fire Del Rio if pursuing Gruden was a credible option, and that the Raiders would offer the former Raiders and Buccaneers coach upwards of $10 million annually and an ownership stake in the team.

Del Rio was sacked following the 30-10 defeat to the Chargers, leading to the current search.

After Raiders owner Mark Davis unceremoniously pulled the plug on the Del Rio era on Sunday afternoon, team ownership was reportedly "confident" that Gruden would assume the Oakland post once again, per Rapoport.

On the final day of the regular season, the Indianapolis Colts' Chuck Pagano and Oakland Raiders' Jack Del Rio became the latest head coaches to fall victim to the annual firing squad. But, that doesn't look like it's going to stop the Oakland Raiders from potentially giving him too much. But, it's a results business.

Del Rio finished his three-year tenure in Oakland with a 25-23 record and one playoff appearance. For the first time this season it seemed Del Rio had lost the team as the effort just wasn't what it was in previous weeks. Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports that New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton will be a target of Gruden's should he officially be tabbed by the Raiders.

With Andrew Luck missing the entire 2017 season, Indy never had a chance. However, Gruden holds a career coaching record of 95-81.
