"[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.

Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio has been fired after a disappointing season. In his three-year tenure with the Raiders, he went 25-23 overall, leading the team to a 12-win season in 2016, before being eliminated in the first round.

JDR announces that he will not be returning as head coach next year.

Del Rio revealed this news to the media after the game.

Del Rio's Raiders ended the season with a massive thud, losing 30-10 in Los Angeles.

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. Under first-year coordinator Todd Downing, the group appeared to take a step back, particularly Carr and receiver Amari Cooper. Some of that might be attributed to the addition of tight end Jared Cook, but a solid tight end, in theory, should have made the offense better.

This was Del Rio's second try as a head coach after spending nine seasons with the Jaguars from 2003-2011.
