Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history

Steve Corkran on Twitter: Jon Gruden's 10-year deal with Raiders to approach $100M
Hilda Schwartz | 06 January, 2018, 01:10

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Raiders are giving Gruden a 10-year contract which is expected to be worth roughly $100 million for Gruden to return to the sidelines.

It seems to be all but a foregone conclusion that Jon Gruden will return to the Oakland Raiders as head coach, replacing the recently fired Jack Del Rio.

Many coaches and National Football League people close to Gruden were convinced by Thanksgiving that Gruden, who has toyed with putting together coaching staffs in the past, was actually intent on doing it, and with both of his former head-coaching franchises (Oakland and Tampa Bay) mulling coaching changes, the odds were greater than ever of a return.

Gruden spent four seasons as coach in Oakland from 1998-2001. ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders.

The 14th-ranked Anderson immediately broke Bautista Agut and was never in danger of losing serve in the first set. She started well, breaking Ostapenko's serve in the first game of the match.

His tenure ended shortly after the "Tuck Rule" loss to the New England Patriots when he was traded the following month to Tampa Bay for two first-round draft picks, two second-rounders and $8 million. 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.

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

Several assistant coaches have already been hired by the Raiders in anticipation of Gruden's hiring. Gibbs stepped away following the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career.
