Oakland Raiders Officially Announce Jon Gruden Is Back As Head Coach

Oakland Raiders Officially Announce Jon Gruden Is Back As Head Coach”

Barring anything unexpected, Gruden is calling his last game on Saturday when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Tennessee Titans. Gruden will be formally introduced at a news conference Tuesday. He is the second-youngest head coach to win a Super Bowl in National Football League history, winning a ring at age 39 in his first season with Tampa Bay.

Gruden reportedly received a 10-year, $100 million deal to return to coaching the Oakland Raiders.

Gruden previously coached the Raiders from 1998 through 2001, compiling a 38-26 regular-season record and a 2-2 record in two playoff appearances. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following a 6-10 season as rumors team owner Mark Davis had targeted Gruden to replace Del Rio.

While the Raiders are widely expected to name Gruden their next head coach as early as next week, neither Gruden nor the team has confirmed those reports. Gibbs returned to coaching in 2004 and his second stint in Washington wasn't almost as effective as his first. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons. He came back in 2004 and had a 30-34 record in four seasons, leading Washington to two playoff berths. This seems like a bit much for someone who has not coached in nine years. He now serves as the Los Angeles Rams' quarterbacks coach and is helping to guide his second-year pupil, Jared Goff, into the postseason. Shell had spent his first six years away from the Raiders as an assistant coach but had been out of the profession entirely for five seasons when Davis hired him a second time. He also helped quarterback Case Keenum have a career year.
