Jon Gruden to come out of retirement and rejoin Raiders as coach

  • Raiders general manager Reggie Mc Kenzie could be a big help to Jon Gruden if he decides to coach the team

The Raiders' owner and managing general owner also may include an ownership stake in the offer to Gruden, also reported by Schefter. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the team has made no formal announcement.

He would replace Jack Del Rio, who was sacked after the team's regular season finale.

Oakland traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he won a Super Bowl in his first season in 2003. He was sacked by the Buccaneers following the 2008 season and has served as a color coordinator for ESPN's "Monday Night Football" ever since.

It looks like Jon Gruden will return to once again be the head coach of the Oakland Raiders after being out of coaching for 10 years, NFL.com reports. Carolina Panthers coordinator Greg Olson is expected to be Gruden's offensive coordinator and Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is a top candidate for Oakland's defensive coordinator position.


Jon Gruden will leave retirement to take over the Raiders once again.

Oakland's press conference will come after Gruden makes his final appearance for ESPN on Saturday when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Tennessee Titans. He has a 95-81 career record.

Many speculated that the Raiders broke the Rooney Rule, which is a league policy that requires NFL teams to interview minority candidates for coaching and senior football operation positions.

"We believe the Rooney Rule was complied with".
