Jack Del Rio Fired, Jon Gruden Coming Back to the Raiders as Head Coach

The Raiders season is over, but the real news for the silver and black is about to begin, as reports from ESPN’s Adam Schefter says that former coach Jon Gruden is coming back – as the new head coach of the Raiders.

Gruden will come back to the team after Jack Del Rio was fired after the teams’ regular season finale loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Del Rio announced that owner Mark Davis told him after the Raiders loss to the Chargers that he was fired.

Del Rio, who received a four-year contract extension from the Raiders in February, posted an 18-13 mark with the franchise.
