Derek Carr on Del Rio firing: ‘It hurts’

Derek Carr

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr appears to be a bit shaken up over the firing of head coach Jack Del Rio.

Speaking with reporters minutes after Del Rio was fired following a season-ending loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, Carr reacted to the news saying, “It hurts,” per Matt Schneidman of The Mercury News.

Amidst high expectations, the Raiders finished the 2017 season at just 6-10. Carr himself wasn’t immune to their struggles either, entering Sunday’s finale with 3,253 yards passing and 21 touchdowns to 12 interceptions. That said, the team seems to have a respected target in mind to succeed Del Rio, so hopefully the two-time Pro Bowler won’t be down in the dumps for too long.
