  • Raiders news: Oakland fires head coach Jack Del Rio

The move comes after Del Rio and the Raiders agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension in February after he helped the franchise secure its first playoff berth since 2002.

Del Rio lasted three seasons as the Raiders coach, posting a 25-23 record. "The opportunities and lack of production really not good enough, really disappointing".

Those reports indicate Gruden could receive $10 million in salary and an ownership stake.

Del Rio was informed after Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that he will not be back as the team's head coach.

Bucs expected to retain Koetter
The report cited Koetter's involvement in quarterback Jameis Winston's development as a key reason for Tampa Bay's faith in him. After weeks of Jon Gruden-to-Tampa Bay rumors running wild , the Buccaneers will retain Dirk Koetter after all.

Davis' decision to part ways with Del Rio also gives credence to the "grumors" that began swirling on Saturday night that Davis wanted to bring Jon Gruden back to the organization.

"But it's a results business".

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.

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.
