AP: Jack Del Rio to be New Oakland Raiders Coach

Posted: Updated:
The Oakland Raiders have hired Denver defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio as their new coach.

A person with knowledge of the deal said it was agreed to on Wednesday, not long after the team told interim coach Tony Sparano he would not get the job. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an announcement had not been made. 

ESPN first reported the hiring. 

Del Rio replaces Sparano, who replaced the fired Dennis Allen and had hoped to keep the job.

Del Rio was head coach in Jacksonville for nine seasons before spending the past three as defensive coordinator in Denver.  (AP)
