Raiders hire Jon Gruden

At the conclusion of ESPN's Titans-Chiefs broadcast, play-by-play announcer Sean McDonough congratulated Gruden and shook his hand.

Hours after the game, the Oakland Raiders made it official by sending out tweet and press release.

NFL Media reported earlier this week Gruden already has plans to hire Rams quarterbacks coach Greg Olson as his offensive coordinator, Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther for the same role in Oakland, and Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia as special teams coordinator.

Gruden will be announced this week as the next coach of the Oakland Raiders, and thus was working his last game for ESPN; McDonough made clear that Gruden was liked and respected not just by his broadcast partner, but by everyone involved with ESPN's National Football League production. Great legacy on Monday Night Football.

Gruden reportedly is set to strike a deal for 10 years and $100 million to be the Raiders' next head coach, ESPN reported Friday.

When McDonough acknowledged the news before the game, Gruden awkwardly replied by saying nothing is official, but afterwards, he accepted the farewell and said, "It's been a great run". "But I know you're looking forward to getting back to coaching".

McDonough signed off by bidding farewell to Gruden and wishing him luck with the Raiders.

"Oh, thank you", Gruden said.
