Raiders hire Jack Del Rio

The Oakland Raiders have officially hired hometown boy Jack Del Rio to try to end the misery that has saddled the franchise for most of this century, it was announced Thursday.

Del Rio, a former head coach in Jacksonville and who was the defensive coordinator in Denver the past three seasons, is the 21st head coach in team history and will be formally introduced Friday in a news conference at the team’s headquarters in Alameda, Calif.

“After a thorough interview and evaluation process, we are excited to announce Jack Del Rio as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders,” owner Mark Davis said in a statement. “I have no doubt that he will make a significant impact and help reach the goal of everyone in this building, which is to win championships.”

ESPN broke the news of Del Rio’s agreement with the Raiders on Wednesday.

Del Rio is from the East Bay and went to Hayward High, which also produced Hall of Fame coach Bill Walsh. Del Rio’s family are long-time Raiders season ticket holders, and it was known in NFL circles that Del Rio had long coveted the Oakland job.

He had his second interview with Davis, general manager Reggie McKenzie and former Raiders coach John Madden, the Hall of Famer who has been a proponent of Del Rio.

Del Rio brings head-coaching experience, which Davis covets. In 2012, McKenzie hired Dennis Allen, who hadn’t any head-coaching experience and he went 8-20 as Oakland’s coach before being fired in September.

Davis led the coaching search this time around.

The Raiders are hoping Del Rio can change the team’s fortunes. Oakland has won a total of 11 games over the past three seasons and hasn’t had a winning season since 2002.

“Jack Del Rio brings a strong leadership presence to this organization,” McKenzie said in a statement. “He has developed an excellent reputation as a coach in this league and we are happy that he is a Raider.”

Del Rio, who will be the Raiders’ ninth head coach since 2003, had a 68-71 record in Jacksonville from 2003 to 2011, and he twice guided the Jaguars to the playoffs, where he was 1-2.

He also had a 3-1 record as Denver’s interim coach in 2013 when head coach John Fox was dealing with health issues.

Niners name Jim Tomsula coach

WHO ??????

After eight known external interviews, including a second sitdown with one candidate, the San Francisco 49ersare staying in-house.

Jim Tomsula, who has been the Niners’ defensive line coach since 2007, was promoted to succeed Jim Harbaugh, the team announced Wednesday. Tomsula, who was the interim head coach at the end of 2010 after Mike Singletary was fired, led the team to a 38-7 win over the Arizona Cardinals in its final game of the season as it finished 6-20.

“After conducting a thorough coaching search, and meeting with a number of outstanding candidates, Jim Tomsula clearly is the right man to lead this team,” CEO Jed York said in a statement. “Jim is a great teacher and a tremendous mentor who conducts himself with great class and integrity.”

The well-liked Tomsula, 46, is set to be formally introduced Thursday in a news conference at Levi’s Stadium.

York said a day after the season ended that he wanted to find a “teacher” to lead the franchise forward. Certainly a coach familiar with the operation was important as the 49ers build around quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is coming off a disappointing year.

“Our organization is excited to have Jim Tomsula leading this football team,” general manager Trent Baalke said. “We have had the privilege of working alongside Jim for the past eight seasons. He is a proven leader, teacher and mentor, and we look forward to seeing him apply his craft and vision to our team.”

In tabbing a popular locker room figure in Tomsula, though, the Niners figure to lose defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who interviewed for the job on Dec. 30. The Niners’ defense was its strength in an up-and-down 8-8 season, in which it ranked fifth in the league in total defense.

And there are questions about whom Tomsula brings in to replace offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who left for the Buffalo Bills. Because the Niners’ offense tried to reinvent itself last year from a ground-and-pound attack to more of a spread passing offense, Roman’s replacement will seemingly have to make better use of the personnel at his disposal.
