That's why everything about this feels like it is more about business than ball.
Introduced Tuesday as the Raiders'new head coach, Gruden said he looks forward to finally speaking with Lynch - potentially to gauge whether Lynch will be a part of his offense in 2018.
"There are four major reasons I'm here coaching today. I'm a real short-term, goal-oriented coach". But Gruden said his broadcast career allowed him to see how and where other team's practice and how schemes are evolving. "For my career (here) to end on that night in New England, it still ticks me off".
The Raiders almost got there in Gruden's first stint from 1998-2001 but the team lost to Baltimore in the 2000 AFC title game and followed that with the memorable loss in the snow against the Patriots that still haunts the franchise. Gruden last coached in the National Football League with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in the 2008 season.
After agreeing to a massive $100 million contract that spans 10 years, Gruden will now have a chance to write a new ending with the Raiders.
Bieniemy was a second-round pick of the Chargers in 1991, and played running back for nine seasons with San Diego, Cincinnati and Philadelphia. "I asked for Marshawn Lynch in production meetings and never got to meet him".
"The reality is I haven't changed much at all since 1998", Gruden said. I had a son here, some of my great memories in life were in Oakland and I want to give them two of the best years of football that I can possibly help deliver.
Minutes before Gruden took the stage, the room fell silent. So, you bring in someone who is not famous for working well with others?
There is this theory floating around the Raiders that one very big contract was offered to precipitate the signing of another, that owner Mark Davis awarded quarterback Derek Carr a nine-figure deal last offseason with the intention of eventually offering another to the man he wanted to coach him.
Even outside, dozens of fans stood at the entrance to the Raiders' facility with signs, masks and props to greet Gruden and the contingent of famous Raiders expected to show. "I haven't won a game since 2008".
He's got at least one person who'd contemplate joining his coaching staff. "With that said, I have a lot to prove, and I know that".
Gruden didn't entirely throw Jack Del Rio or Todd Downing under the bus for the ex-coach's ill-advised switch from Bill Musgrave to Downing last offseason, or Downing's failure to build a competent scheme for Derek Carr.
On Del Rio: In the wake of firing previous head coach Jack Del Rio on December 31, Raiders owner Mark Davis restricted his comments to a short statement released by the team. Carr sustained a fractured transverse process injury against the Denver Broncos on October 1. Analysts, former players and fans raved all off-season about how the team would become a Super Bowl contender.
"I love the city of Oakland", Gruden said. "I never thought I'd be back, but here I am and I'm ready to get to work".
"At that point in time I just wanted to know if he could help me figure out how to fix this franchise", Davis told a group of reporters, with quotes from The Athletic's Tim Kawakami. You have to be careful what you post because sometimes it backfires against you.
