At the NFL Combine, Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio reflected on his decision to initially join team and his vision once he was hired.
“When we talked about the vision I had for the franchise and the possibility of me joining him as head coach, there were several things that I laid out that I thought were imperative — facility upgrades and things like that — and he’s been very, very generous and supportive for Reggie and I,” Del Rio said, per UPI.
“I knew I was signing a deal that was less than maybe what a guy with nine years experience would deserve,” he added. “But there are many moments in life where you find the ability to humble yourself and just keep your head down and keep working hard, and that side takes care of itself.
“I think in the end, the money comes. … I love what I do so it made it a no-brainer for me.”
