CBS Sacramento

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) – The Oakland Raiders have told interim coach Tony Sparano that he will not be getting the full-time job, clearing the way for the team to hire Jack Del Rio.

A person with knowledge of the search said Wednesday on condition of anonymity that Sparano has been told he is no longer a candidate for the job. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not revealing any details of the search.

Sparano and Del Rio were the two finalists for the job and the Raiders are now finalizing a deal with the former Denver defensive coordinator and Jacksonville head coach to get the job.

Del Rio had his second interview with the team on Tuesday.
