OAKLAND (KRON) — The Oakland Raiders announced Tuesday that the team has let go of defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr.

Statement from the Raiders:

The Oakland Raiders have relieved Ken Norton, Jr. of his duties as defensive coordinator, the club announced Tuesday.

“After careful thought, I have made a difficult decision to part ways with Ken Norton, Jr. as defensive coordinator,” said Head Coach Jack Del Rio. “I have the utmost respect for Ken as a person and as a coach, but I feel that moving John Pagano into the play-calling role will best utilize his wealth of experience. I appreciate Ken’s passion and commitment to the Raiders since coming aboard and wish him the best going forward.”

The Raiders host the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Nov. 26.
