ESPN cited sources Saturday evening when reporting Gruden, a former Raiders coach who now works as an ESPN analyst, will be tempted to accept a strong offer to coach the Raiders.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was given an extension following the 2016 after a 12-4 season that was believed to pay him at least $5 million per season over the next four seasons.

The Oakland Raiders are reportedly set to see if they can lure Jon Gruden back to the fold to replace Jack Del Rio, who is said to be potentially on his way out. Gruden went 57-55 during seven seasons with the Bucs, which included winning the Super Bowl during his first year and winning the NFC South three times.

It's going to be an interesting offseason for the Raiders for sure.

The elephant in the room is that the Raiders now have a head coach in Jack Del Rio.

With the Raiders preparing for a move to Las Vegas in 2020, it's clear the owner, Mark Davis, wants a big-time head coach in place to stoke fan interest.

"I don't want to sit here and speculate", Gruden said per the Oakland Tribune's Jerry McDonald. "I can't say I haven't taken any phone calls". I take a lot from coaches, some others, yeah, sometimes owners.

Investigators said the device contained 200 grams (7 ounces) of explosives and was rigged with shrapnel to cause more damage. Russian President Vladimir Putin called the explosion at the Perekryostok supermarket on Kondratyevsky Avenue in St.

An ownership source said owners might not be so quick to approve the deal, because they wouldn't want to establish a precedent.

Oakland has suffered through a miserable 2017, going 6-9 while taking steps in the wrong direction at pretty much every conceivable level. After making the playoffs previous year, many expected the team to take a big step forward. "I'm here to help people".

Vea, in the team's worst-kept secret, confirmed to The Seattle Times that he is planning to hire an agent in the coming days and declare for the National Football League draft.

Check back for more on this breaking story. Under Gruden, the Raiders managed to reach the AFC Championship Game in 2001, though they lost to the Baltimore Ravens.

As he has done previously, Gruden has started to assemble a possible staff, calling assistant coaches around the NFL.

Gruden will have not been in the professional coaching ranks in almost a full decade by the time next season rolls around.

The reasons for the Buccaneers deciding to keep coach Dirk Koetter possibly are becoming clearer.
