That's how Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis introduced Jon Gruden on Tuesday for his second stint as the team's head coach. I've paid very close attention to it. I want to help deliver the best football team we can for the people here in Oakland. "I never thought I'd be back, but here I am and I'm ready to get to work". That ended up being Gruden's past year coaching, before serving almost a decade as ESPN's "Monday Night Football" analyst.

Oakland Raiders new head coach John Gruden answers questions during an NFL football news conference in Alameda, Calif. Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018.

"For my career to end on that night in New England, it still ticks me off".

"I have a lot to prove". Gruden won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay in 2002.

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

Multiple media outlets reported that Gruden received a 10-year contract worth an estimated $100 million - the richest and longest in history for a coach.


According to ESPN, Gruden's deal is reportedly for. "To me the money doesn't really come into play here at all". Gruden gave McVay his first job in the National Football League, as a 22-year-old coaching assistant for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008.

Wolf has already been linked to Cleveland, but may be intrigued by returning to Oakland and helping the McKenzie and Gruden team. It was going to take the right opportunity and the right time for that to happen.

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

"Most of all I love to win and I'm going to do everything I can", Gruden said. No guarantees, no promises.

It was a spectacle viewing the Gruden introductory press conference, no matter how you ended up seeing it.
