Jon Gruden to come out of retirement and rejoin Raiders as coach

Jon Gruden to come out of retirement and rejoin Raiders as coach

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the team is planning to introduce Gruden as their next head coach during a news conference on Tuesday.

The Raiders fired head coach Jack Del Rio on Sunday at the conclusion of the team's 6-10 season in which they missed the postseason and finished third in the AFC West.

Oakland traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he won a Super Bowl in his first season in 2003.

The Raiders will still be in Oakland for the upcoming season before their eventual move to Las Vegas.

Jon Gruden is returning to the sideline with the Oakland Raiders and will be rewarded with a contract that is the longest and richest for any coach in National Football League history, multiple media outlets reported Friday.

Gruden was the Raiders coach from 1998-2001 and compiled a 38-26 record with the team. 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. Gruden holds an all-time mark of 95-81 over 11 seasons with the Raiders and the Bucs and is 5-4 in the playoffs.

Several assistant coaches have already been hired by the Raiders in anticipation of Gruden's hiring.
