Jack Del Rio told reporters that he was sacked after Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, according to Steve Wyche of NFL Network.

Jack Del Rio has been dismissed by the Oakland Raiders.

Gruden went 95-81 over his coaching career, notching a 38-26 record over the first four years of his career in Oakland.

Reports surfaced that Raiders owner Mark Davis has grown increasingly frustrated during the team's 6-9 season, one year removed from the club's postseason run. John Pagano, who was on the staff as assistant head coach-defense, took over as coordinator. However, the pieces are in place for the Raiders to get back to the consistent success they have maintained throughout most of the franchise's history.
