Jon Gruden leaves broadcast booth to again coach Raiders

Jon Gruden leaves broadcast booth to again coach Raiders

Appearing on ESPN's Golic and Wingo (h/t Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com) on Wednesday, Gruden confirmed he has spoken with Raiders owner Mark Davis regarding the opening and added, "I think there's a good chance", when asked about whether he would accept the job.

According to multiple online reports, Jon Gruden will be introduced as the Oakland Raiders' next head coach on Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the team has made no formal announcement.

Gruden will replace former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, who was sacked Sunday after a disappointing six-win season. Gruden was then traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Gruden has been the analyst for ESPN's Monday Night Football since 2009. Carolina Panthers coordinator Greg Olson is expected to be Gruden's offensive coordinator and Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is a top candidate for Oakland's defensive coordinator position.

"It's been a long couple of weeks", Gruden said in a recent interview after speaking with the Raiders organization. He has a 95-81 career record. Bisaccia was the special teams coordinator for all seven seasons Gruden was Tampa Bay's head coach.

"We believe the Rooney Rule was complied with". "We'll see what decision they make".

This would not mark the first time the Raiders brought back a coach for a second stint. He came back in 2004 and had a 30-34 record in four seasons, leading Washington to two playoff berths.
