Jack Del Rio Fired by Mark Davis After Raiders' Loss to Chargers

Report Raiders set to pursue former coach John Gruden

After signing a contract extension last offseason, Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio has been fired.

Del Rio said owner Mark Davis informed him of his firing after Sunday's game.

What George Weah told Liberians after winning presidential election
Founded by freed U.S. slaves in 1847, Liberia is Africa's oldest modern republic. Chelsea icon Didier Drogba has already sent Weah a congratulatory message.

The foundation, apparently, crumbled in a matter of months.

For the past near decade, Gruden has been an ESPN analyst, with constant rumors around where and when he would return to the game. They went just 2-6 on the road, unable to capitalize on a season in which they won their first two contests.

Police protection for Coptic churches has increased ahead of Coptic Christmas , which is celebrated on January 7. Earlier, an Al Arabiya reporter on the ground said that three policemen were killed at the scene.

Del Rio did what he could to try and turn things around, firing defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. on November 21, after the team's 33-8 loss to the New England Patriots. 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. Under first-year coordinator Todd Downing, the group appeared to take a step back, particularly Carr and receiver Amari Cooper. The offense, including Derek Carr, performed poorly throughout the season.

Del Rio finished his third season as the team's head coach.

Colder weather on the way
A "cold Arctic air mass" is expected to hit the Upstate from the north later this week, according to the weather service. Across northern Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, mid-morning temperatures were in the negatives or single digits.
