Jack Del Rio was sacked as head coach of the Oakland Raiders on Sunday night as speculation picked up that his replacement could be a familiar face.

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

We are still in the Champions League, the FA Cup and Carabao Cup so we will do the best that we can to try to win something". We must go game by game. "We've scored less, but we've conceded less, too".

Del Rio's firing comes one day after ESPN reported the Raiders were pursuing former National Football League coach and current ESPN broadcaster Jon Gruden as their coach and were offering an ownership stake to entice him. Oakland went 6-10 for the second biggest one-season drops in wins in franchise history. "There is no news to report", Gruden said Saturday.

The Raiders are believed to be on the verge of hiring Jon Gruden, their coach from 1998-2001, as Del Rio's replacement.

The caller repeatedly gave authorities his alleged home address, leading Wichita police officers to the house. The arrest comes after Mr Finch's mother, Lisa Finch, said her son had been "murdered".

Gruden went 95-81 over his coaching career, notching a 38-26 record over the first four years of his career in Oakland. Under first-year coordinator Todd Downing, the group appeared to take a step back, particularly Carr and receiver Amari Cooper. The defense didn't get better and they had to fire defensive coordinator Ken Norton during the season. The offense, including Derek Carr, performed poorly throughout the season.

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