Jon Gruden still won't say he's the next Raiders head coach

Jon Gruden still won't say he's the next Raiders head coach

"Nothing's official", Gruden said before announcing the Titans-Chiefs game for ESPN.

While the Raiders are widely expected to name Gruden their next head coach as early as next week, neither Gruden nor the team has confirmed those reports.

Sean McDonough is really going to miss his ESPN partner Jon Gruden on "Monday Night Football" and gave an awkward fist bump to prove it.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Raiders are expected to offer him a 10-year contract, the longest coaching deal in National Football League history, which will reportedly be worth more than $100 million.

Jon Gruden has been a staple of Monday Night Football ever since joining ESPN in 2009, but he'll be heading back to the NFL coaching ranks soon enough.




What makes this different from the Tennessee or Tampa Bay Buccaneers rumors?

The franchise then traded Gruden to the Bucs, and he won the Super Bowl during his first season in Tampa. Carr's passer rating fell from 96.7 in 2016 to 86.4 as the Raiders finished 6-10 and coach Jack Del Rio was sacked minutes after their season finale.

The Raiders, meanwhile, have gone through nine different head coaches since firing Gruden. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season.

Owner Mark Davis hopes that will all change now that he has finally lured Gruden back for a second stint as the team's coach. In fact, Cincinnati has been one of the most frequent sources to find first-time head coaches over the past decade.

The Raiders' owner and managing general owner also may include an ownership stake in the offer to Gruden, also reported by Schefter. The team went 30-34 in his four seasons, making the playoffs twice and winning one game before retiring again.
