Oakland Raiders set to rehire John Gruden in record deal

Yet, Gruden is about to land the biggest coaching contract in U.S. sports history?

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that a good deal of Gruden's staff is already in place, though Reggie McKenzie will remain the team's general manager.

According to multiple reports, the Raiders will introduce Gruden as their head coach during a news conference Tuesday.

The date of the official announcement was first reported by RaidersSnakepit.com.

The Raiders fired Del Rio following a disappointing six-win season and talk immediately turned to Gruden, who has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay following the 2008 season.

Jan. 6, 2001:, The playoffs are back at the Coliseum for the first time since the Raiders and Jim Plunkett beat Houston and Ken Stabler in December of 1980 en route to a Super Bowl championship. He is scheduled to work his final game Saturday in Kansas City when the Chiefs take on the Tennessee Titans in a playoff game. "I've heard I'm getting ownership of the team". But I've seen Barry Melrose do this. Coach Vance Joseph took the "interim" tag off Musgrave following Denver's 5-11 season. That said, this only further underlines the importance of the relationship between the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback and Gruden.

Gruden told ESPN earlier this week that he had a good talk with Davis about returning to the organization and believed there was a "good chance" it would happen. The Raiders are to announce the deal at a news conference on Tuesday.




That offseason Gruden was traded to the Bucs for four draft picks (including two first rounders) and $8 million. Raiders owner Mark Davis has been more than willing to relocate home games over the past few years due to the tenuous stadium situation in Oakland. He has a 95-81 career record. Gruden's title came in his first season in Tampa Bay with a historically great defense put together by his predecessor, Tony Dungy.

The Raiders have not identified their candidates for the head-coaching job.

Sept. 10, 2000: Peyton Manning is slicing the Raiders to ribbons and has the Colts up 21-0 early in the second quarter and 24-7 at halftime.

"We believe the Rooney Rule was complied with". "Minority candidates were interviewed and we will wait and see the decision they make".

In 2003, former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue fined then-Lions president Matt Millen $200,000 for failing to interview a minority candidate before hiring Steve Mariucci as coach.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the matter.

In 1989, Al Davis made Art Shell the first African-American head coach in the NFL's modern era. Gibbs stepped away following the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career.
