The Raiders Want Jon Gruden

The Raiders Want Jon Gruden

At this point, it seems a foregone conclusion that the Oakland Raiders will be hiring Jon Gruden for a second go-round heading into the 2018 season.

According to Jerry McDonald of the Mercury News, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes".

The move clears a path for a pursuit of Jon Gruden, a former Raiders coach who had been linked primarily to his other former team, the Buccaneers. ESPN reported Saturday that the Raiders were interested in bringing Gruden back.

Even though Gruden has been hesitate in the past to return to coaching, he will have enough power within the organization that he can reshape the entire front office and coaching staff, though some holdovers still remain from his first time coaching the team. "I was supposed to be going to Tampa last week".

Mark Davis was prepared to pursue Gruden with a strong offer that could include an ownership stake in the team. This time, it feels real, as he could the Raiders' next head coach in the coming days.




The Raiders are 6-9 entering their Week 17 finale. But again, Gruden has not coached since 2008. Del Rio fired offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave earlier in the offseason, which would explain why quarterback Derek Carr looks like he's taken a step back as far as progression goes.

For Del Rio, the end comes at the conclusion of a season of unfulfilled expectations. In his first season in Tampa, Gruden got his revenge as he led the Bucs to a 12-4 regular season and crushed the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII, 48-21. When they win, sometimes you get the feeling that they can beat anybody.

Several players said they know Gruden, who was in the booth for the Raiders' Christmas night loss to the Eagles, more for his work on "Monday Night Football".

"He felt he needed a change, and I told him how much I appreciated the opportunity he gave me".
