For Del Rio, the end comes at the conclusion of a season of unfulfilled expectations.
Oakland has been circling Gruden like a hawk since Saturday when NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Raiders would fire Del Rio if pursuing Gruden was a credible option, and that the Raiders would offer the former Raiders and Buccaneers coach upwards of $10 million annually and an ownership stake in the team.
Jack Del Rio, who signed a contract extension last summer, is in trouble as the Raiders (6-9) have been the biggest disappointment in the AFC this season.

Gruden can not come out and say what's been widely reported - he is leaving ESPN for the Raiders job - but he did at least acknowledge the fact he is up for the job.
It should also be noted that Gruden now works for ESPN and presumably Schefter would not make such a proclamation without some assurance that his statement was accurate. It seems all that needs to happen before Gruden's hiring is made official is the satisfaction of the Rooney rule and Gruden calling the National Football League playoff game for ESPN this coming weekend.
An ownership source said owners might not be so quick to approve the deal, because they wouldn't want to establish a precedent.
The Colts fired Pagano on Sunday, less than two hours after they ended a 4-12 campaign with a 22-13 victory over the Texans, and the Raiders handed Del Rio a pink slip after his third year when the impressive turnaround job he engineered for his hometown team collapsed with a disappointing six-win season. But the ESPN color commentator played dumb Tuesday when asked whether he was being courted by Oakland. Asked about Del Rio's job status.
