Raiders preparing to offer Jon Gruden head coach job

Adjust Comment Print

"My understanding is they're interviewing candidates this week and they're going to let everybody know sometime early next week or whenever they make their decision", Gruden said. Imagine going up to your girlfriend of three years and saying, "I'm going to propose to this other girl I dated from 1999 to 2001 and if she says no, then I'll probably propose to you".

Reports indicate that Oakland is willing to grant Gruden an ownership stake if he becomes their next head coach.

Chelsea vs. Stoke City, Premier League
Stoke City have failed to win a single Premier League match at Stamford Bridge in 9 attempts, losing 8 and drawing 1. Chelsea are third in the Premier League, one point behind Manchester United and 16 points behind Manchester City.

It sounds like Jon Gruden is really coming back to coaching this time and it will happen with a team he is quite familiar with, the Oakland Raiders.

In short, pumping new life into the offense is a must for the team in the offseason if Del Rio expects to remain on the Raiders roster. Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports that New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton will be a target of Gruden's should he officially be tabbed by the Raiders. Despite winning back-to-back division titles, the Raiders traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who dominated Oakland the following year in Super Bowl XXXVII.

Gruden is calling his final game of the season on Saturday, when the Titans and Chiefs meet in the wild-card round.

Jon Gruden might return to coaching soon. The Raiders must comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate during the hiring process. However, with so many coaching vacancies expected, that shouldn't last long. It seems all that needs to happen before Gruden's hiring is made official is the satisfaction of the Rooney rule and Gruden calling the National Football League playoff game for ESPN this coming weekend.
