Jack Del Rio is expected to become the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the Raiders are expected to finalize the deal as early as today.
Del Rio had a long second interview with the Raiders yesterday, meeting with owner Mark Davis, General Manager Reggie McKenzie and other members of the team’s brain trust, including Hall of Fame coach John Madden. That interview apparently went well enough that Del Rio wants the job and the Raiders want him.
The 51-year-old Del Rio was previously the head coach of the Jaguars from 2003 to 2011. He spent the last three seasons as defensive coordinator of the Broncos.
