Raiders set to hire Gruden for $100 million

  • Jon Gruden worth every penny of his $100 million contract from Raiders

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden (L) greets Raiders running back Charlie Garner after Garner ran an 80-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown against the New York Jets at the AFC playoffs, 12 January 2002, in Oakland, California.

The deal is expected to be worth as much as $10 million per season and could be as long as 10 years, according to that person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made.

Gruden's hiring has become the worst-kept secret in football after the Raiders fired head coach Jack Del Rio immediately after Sunday's game.

Raiders reporter and author Steve Corkran first reported on the Raiders' plan for a "splashy" Tuesday news conference.


Gruden told ESPN earlier this week that he had a good talk with Raiders owner Mark Davis about returning to the organization and believed there was a "good chance" it would happen. He was 95-81 over 11 seasons with Oakland and Tampa Bay, winning a Super Bowl with the Buccaneers.

Gruden is scheduled to work the network's playoff game Saturday in Kansas City between the Chiefs and Tennessee Titans. Greg Olson will be Oakland's offensive coordinator, Paul Guenther will be defensive coordinator and Rich Bisaccia will coach special teams, La Canfora reports.

Gruden coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001, compiling a 38-26 record.

This would not mark the first time the Raiders brought back a coach for a second stint. Gibbs stepped away following the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career.
