Programming note: For comprehensive coverage of the Raiders' head coach situation, watch SportsNet Central tonight at 6, 10:30 and midnight on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
The club hasn't made an official announcement, bu multiple sources told CSNBayArea.com that Jack Del Rio agreed to become the next head coach of the Raiders.
Oakland running back Maurice Jones-Drew played for Del Rio in Jacksonville from 2006 to 2011.
"I'm happy that coach Del Rio got a second chance," Jones-Drew said to Comcast SportsNet reporter Fallon Smith in a statement. "He was a really good coach while I was with him in Jacksonville.
"With his mindset and the talent of this team, great things are on the way for this franchise."
Jones-Drew signed with the Raiders as a free agent last offseason.
In 12 games this season, he rushed for just 96 yards on 43 rushes.
