The Oakland Raiders signed head coach Jack Del Rio to a new contract

The Oakland Raiders rewarded head coach Jack Del Rio on Friday, signing him to a new four-year deal that will keep him in Oakland through the 2020 season. 

"The Raiders have torn up Jack Del Rio's original contract and rewarded him with a new four-year deal," Raiders owner Mark Davis said. "We are excited to continue building on the strong foundation that has been established and this is a significant step in achieving that goal."

The Northern California native coached the Silver & Black to a 12-4 record last season, ending the franchise's 14-year playoff drought before losing to the Houston Texans in the Wild Card game.

Del Rio signed his original deal in January of 2015, leading the team to a 7-9 record in his first year. 

The Raiders will now work on longterm extensions for their star players on both sides of the ball, quarterback Derek Carr and defensive player of the year Khalil Mack.
