Raiders reward Del Rio with new 4-year contract

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders rewarded coach Jack Del Rio with a new four-year contract Friday, replacing the original four-year deal he received when he took the job in January 2015.

Owner Mark Davis made the announcement Friday evening by saying the initial deal had been "torn up" after Del Rio led the Raiders (12-5) to their first playoff berth in 14 years. The Raiders lost to Houston in a wild-card game, but they played without starting quarterback Derek Carr, who broke his right leg in the second-to-last game of the regular season.

"We are excited to continue building on the strong foundation that has been established, and this is a significant step in achieving that goal," Davis said.

The former Denver Broncos defensive coordinator took over two years ago as the team's ninth head coach since the start of the 2003 season. The Raiders had the NFL's worst record in that span, failing to produce a single winning season or playoff berth.
