Jon Gruden: 'I think I am being considered' by Raiders

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie Jon Gruden: 'I think I am being considered' by Raiders

When asked directly if he was a candidate, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes. I hope I'm a candidate", regarding where things stand between him and the Raiders.

The Oakland Raiders are planning on offering Jon Gruden to become the team's next head coach, according to Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Gruden declined to specifically comment about the Raiders this past weekend, saying "there is no news to report". After leading the Raiders to 8-8 records his first two years, Gruden helped the team reach the AFC title game following the 2000 season and got Oakland back into the playoffs the following season.

So the question is, if Gruden isn't coming to Tampa then where will he go?

In short, pumping new life into the offense is a must for the team in the offseason if Del Rio expects to remain on the Raiders roster.

In 11 seasons as an National Football League head coach, Gruden has a 95-81 record in the regular season and 5-4 record in the postseason.

Reversing crude oil cycle is bad for India
WTI prices were further boosted by an EIA report of a 4.6-M bbl weekly drop in USA commercial Crude Oil storage levels. Brent crude futures, the worldwide benchmark, were down 53 cents, or 0.8 per cent at $66.34 a barrel.


Pagano finished his first head coaching job with a 56-46 record, including a 3-3 mark in the playoffs.

One potential complication with the Raiders is the fact that current coach Jack Del Rio was just awarded a four-year contract extension in February. The Raiders must comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate during the hiring process.

Gruden, 54, has been reluctant to return to the NFL in part because of his high-paying job with ESPN on Monday Night Football and because he has been vocal in his distaste for NFLPA-mandated restrictions on practice and training time.

Other teams that were expected to address their head coaching situation this week include the Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals, and Denver Broncos.

His Tampa Bay Buccaneers did win a Super Bowl back in 2002.

"I trust the integrity of Mark Davis and Reggie and what they have done", Pollard said.
