Oakland Raiders Set to Ask Jon Gruden to Return as Coach

Raiders news: Oakland fires head coach Jack Del Rio Oakland Raiders Set to Ask Jon Gruden to Return as Coach
Elias Hubbard | 01 January, 2018, 03:14

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported the Raiders will pursue Gruden, who won't be headed to Tampa Bay after the Buccaneers committed to Dirk Koetter for at least on more season.

If Davis was staunchly behind current coach Jack Del Rio, he would've said something like, "I have no interest in hiring Jon Gruden". Gruden is prepping for commentary, he's not game planning - the difference needs to be distinguished. Secondly, he would be inheriting a young, dynamic quarterback in Derek Carr and he gets to be the coach of a franchise headed to Las Vegas in 2020. "Gruden's contract even could be backloaded to pay him more in the Nevada years and lessen his tax burden during the Oakland ones".

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the Raiders are either going to keep Del Rio heading into next year or part ways with him in favor of Gruden should he be willing to leave the ESPN booth.

A surprise candidate has emerged as a potential destination for Jon Gruden's seemingly inevitable return to coaching, but it probably should not have been a surprise at all - the Oakland Raiders.

That hasn't happened, though, as the Raiders are 6-9 heading into their final game of the regular season.

"I don't want to sit here and speculate".

Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area asked Raiders owner Mark Davis about the report. Rightfully so, as there hasn't been a sexier head coaching candidate in the last few years than Gruden - a Super Bowl victor with a throwback personality that fans gravitate towards. I take a lot of phone calls from coaches, some others ... yeah, sometimes owners. Gruden and Jack Del Rio actually share the same agent - talk about awkward - and there's a good chance Gruden doesn't want to talk about the job unless Del Rio is 100 percent out of the picture.

One ownership source told ESPN that the owners "might not be so quick to approve the deal" because they wouldn't want to set a precedent. Gibbs has regularly done studio work breaking down National Football League film, not unlike Gruden does, and that didn't help him stay up to speed with the schemes and gameplans that had changed since the last time he coached.

Gannon never has coached; he went straight to broadcasting upon his retirement. "I'm here to help people".
