Former Bucs coach Gruden hired by Oakland Raiders, will earn $100 million


NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the team is planning to introduce Gruden as their next head coach during a news conference on Tuesday.

Yes, that infamous Tuck Game, in which the Patriots defeated the Raiders 16-13. He went on to win Super Bowl XXXVII with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002.

In returning to the franchise where he coached his first four seasons, Gruden will receive a 10-year contract worth an estimated $100 million, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported, citing sources.


Gruden will replace former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, who was sacked Sunday after a disappointing six-win season.

The Oakland Raiders have apparently completed their interview process and decided on their next head coach, and you will never guess who landed the job. "Minority candidates were interviewed", National Football League executive vice president of communications Joe Lockhart said during a conference call Friday.

Gruden told ESPN earlier this week that he had a good talk with Raiders owner Mark Davis about returning to the organization and believed there was a "good chance" it would happen. Gruden has already started putting together a staff with Cincinnati defensive co-ordinator Paul Guenther among those expected to join. "We'll see what decision they make". Bisaccia was the special teams coordinator for all seven seasons Gruden was Tampa Bay's head coach.
