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.
