Jack Del Rio's run with the Raiders is over.

"[Raiders owner Mark Davis] let me know that he's not gonna be bringing me back", Del Rio said to the media, via ESPN's Paul Gutierrez.

Under Del Rio, the Raiders went 7-9, 12-4 and then slumped to 6-10.

Del Rio signed a three-year contract extension following last year's playoff season.

For the past near decade, Gruden has been an ESPN analyst, with constant rumors around where and when he would return to the game. John Pagano, who was on the staff as assistant head coach-defense, took over as coordinator.

They were the upstarts a year ago and were hot going into the playoffs until Derek Carr busted his ankle.

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.

Amari Cooper, who had a Pro Bowl season in 2016, had a significant drop in his output, as did Michael Crabtree; previous year, that pair combined for over 2,100 receiving yards on 172 catches.

"It was an honor for me to coach this team.this is a results based business", Del Rio told the media.
