Raiders might lure Jon Gruden back to coaching

Raiders might lure Jon Gruden back to coaching

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen report that the Oakland Raiders are ready to make a run at Jon Gruden.

If Davis was staunchly behind current coach Jack Del Rio, he would've said something like, "I have no interest in hiring Jon Gruden". "There is no news to report", Gruden said. According to a source, Davis has always had "an affinity" for Gruden and has offered Gruden part ownership of the team in the past. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Davis has "something big planned" before the Raiders move to Las Vegas during the 2019 offseason.

Following a loss to New England in the tuck rule game following the 2001 season, Gruden was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two first-round draft picks, two second-round draft picks, and $8 million in cash.

In 2002, Gruden led the Bucs past the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII.

Gruden recently has been calling assistant coaches around the league, trying to piece together a staff, though he has made calls in other years and never acted upon any of the opportunities that have come his way.

Gruden was hired by Al Davis to coach the Raiders from 1998 through 2001, posting records of 8-8, 8-8, 12-4 and 11-5.

Said ESPN employee Gruden to ESPN: "I don't want to sit here and speculate". Gruden may see them as a team with whom he can have instant success.

But it might be a different home that Gruden goes back to next season. I take a lot of phone calls from coaches, some others. The ESPN report states that the Raiders could even offer Gruden ownership stake in the team as a means to entice him to accept the role.

Add the fact that Gruden's former scheme is borderline Downing-esque and the Raiders have tried this before with Shell only for it to end in disaster - and fans have a right to be frightened by the notion of Chucky's return. Guys want to bounce ideas off me. But he also holds the Super Bowl record for interceptions with five. "Im here to help people".

Gannon will be the color analyst for the Raiders game against the Chargers on CBS today.
