Jon Gruden says he's in running for Raiders job

NFL Rumors: Raiders Preparing To Make 'Strong Offer' To Jon Gruden

Oakland has made it abundantly clear that ESPN's Jon Gruden will be the next leader of the Raiders, but will the team end up glossing over The Rooney Rule in the process?

The Raiders are prepared to make a serious offer to Jon Gruden in hopes that he would return as head coach of the Raiders, according to an ESPN report.

A regression in 2017 pushed the Raiders to move on, while reports swirled that the team was pursuing Gruden as Del Rio's replacement. The Raiders traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in February, and then Gruden guided his new team to a Super Bowl victory over the Raiders. In the meantime, he's still planning to call this week's AFC Wild Card matchup between the Titans and Chiefs - a team he'll face twice each season when he does take over in Oakland.

Gruden, 54, has been out of coaching since he was sacked by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season and joined the "Monday Night Football" booth in 2009.

Condo has also been through a few cycles of Jon Gruden-returns-to-Oakland rumors. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others.

He said, "I understand it's a results business".

Pagano went 53-45 in six seasons in Indianapolis, missing the playoffs the last three years. "He's one of the rare people that I think has been away from the game but he's been as involved in the game as anybody, where he kind of is getting exposure, the ins and outs". He's the one who led them to the playoffs last season. It seems all that needs to happen before Gruden's hiring is made official is the satisfaction of the Rooney rule and Gruden calling the National Football League playoff game for ESPN this coming weekend.

If hired, Gruden would replace Jack Del Rio, who was sacked on Sunday after three seasons and a 25-23 record with the team. Gruden reportedly wanted to finish out his commitment to the network before leaving for a spot on the sideline.

Davis and Gruden have remained friendly since Gruden's previous stint as head coach in Oakland ended in 2001.

The Raiders finished the season losing four straight, with Carr shouldering some of the blame for the downturn. What have they got? Us as players, we need to do better.
