Jon Gruden To Be Introduced As Raiders Head Coach Next Week

  • Derek Carr Raiders

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. He was traded by the Raiders to Tampa Bay following the 2001 season and beat Oakland for the Super Bowl title the following year. He has not coached since his seventh and final season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. He was sacked by the Buccaneers following the 2008 season and has been in the broadcast booth since.

Rumors surrounding Gruden and coaching jobs have been swirling for years, but if all goes according to plan, he will be announced on Tuesday. ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders.

His final game with Oakland was among the most controversial losses in National Football League history, when the Raiders lost to the New England Patriots on the infamous Tom Brady "Tuck Rule" non-fumble call. Gruden accumulated a 38-26 overall record as the Raiders coach and was 2-2 in playoff games during his four seasons. 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.

This would not mark the first time the Raiders brought back a coach for a second stint.

"I can tell you we believe the Rooney Rule was complied with", Lockhart said.

Other teams have also done it, with one of the most recent notable coaching hires being Joe Gibbs in Washington.
