Adam Schefter Thinks Jon Gruden Will Be Oakland's Next Coach

Adam Schefter Thinks Jon Gruden Will Be Oakland's Next Coach”

When asked specifically if he was a candidate, Gruden replied: "Well, I think I am being considered, yes". "I believe we have developed a solid nucleus", he said, adding that whoever replaces him will have a chance to go to "special places".

Jon Gruden hopes he's a candidate to return for a second stint as coach of the Oakland Raiders and believes a final decision will be made next week.

The move clears a path for a pursuit of Jon Gruden, a former Raiders coach who had been linked primarily to his other former team, the Buccaneers. "Today was kind of a microcosm of our season", Del Rio said after the Raiders' 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Gruden still has one broadcast to do for ESPN's coverage of Wild Card weekend, but after that it's expected that he'll be named the Raiders' new coach. The latter's first foray into the National Football League was a job in Oakland's personnel department, one he accepted a year before Gruden initially joined the organization. In his first season in Tampa, Gruden got his revenge as he led the Bucs to a 12-4 regular season and crushed the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII, 48-21.

In 11 seasons as an National Football League head coach, Gruden has a 95-81 record in the regular season and 5-4 record in the postseason. However, Gruden holds a career coaching record of 95-81.

Gruden has spent the past nine seasons working as an announcer for ESPN and is scheduled to work the playoff game Saturday in Kansas City between the Chiefs and Tennessee Titans. He was wide receivers coach with the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints prior being hired as New York's offensive coordinator last March. The Raiders must comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate during the hiring process.

So, is Gruden the next man up for the Raiders?
