Jon Gruden Officially Announced as New Raiders Head Coach

  • NFL broadcaster and former Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden greets fans before an NFL preseason football game between the Oakland Raiders and the Dallas Cowboys in Oakland Calif. Monday Aug. 13 2012

The worst-kept secret of the week has been confirmed: Jon Gruden will return to coach the Oakland Raiders. The announcement from the team comes an hour after Gruden's final broadcast for Monday Night Football following the Tennessee Titans stunning victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, 22-21. Not only have you lived up to it, you've enhanced it in your performance here, but I know you're looking forward to getting back to coaching.

The Raiders' owner and managing general owner also may include an ownership stake in the offer to Gruden, also reported by Schefter. "Nothing's official yet, but these Chiefs fans have been on my case since we got here".

Gruden's new contract is expected to be a 10-year deal worth $100million ahead of his introduction on Tuesday.

A team spokesman reiterated the Raiders would not comment until they hire a new coach.

Gruden spent four seasons as coach in Oakland from 1998-2001.

The new mode also comes with a new map, Trade District, which you can get a closer look at in the following trailer. We expect it to do about as well as Fortnite Battle Royale , in that it gets a core of loyal players.

Gruden was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and won the Super Bowl in his first season, beating the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII.

TOM FLORES: Flores was replaced as Raiders coach following the 1987 season after winning two Super Bowls in his nine seasons with the franchise.

Gruden, 54, has expressed an interest in returning to the sidelines despite a great job on ESPN's Monday Night Football. Undoubtedly, the Raiders are going all in on Gruden.

During the segment, Gruden told Carr he would draft him over Carr's older brother, David, who was the No. 1 overall pick in 2002. The cynic in me believes that has played a not insignificant role in the decision to name Gruden as head coach, and to do so in the manner in which it has unfolded. "Thank you. I appreciate you".
