Jon Gruden has returned to don the Silver and Black, and will officially be Head Coach of the Oakland Raiders once again.

In leading off the telecast of Saturday afternoon's wild-card game between the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs, ESPN play-by-play announcer Sean McDonough wasted no time revealing one of the worst-kept secrets in sports.

Gruden, 54, last coached in the National Football League in the 2008 season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Buccaneers went 12-4 in his first season and finished 57-55 with three playoff appearances in Gruden's seven seasons.

The offence regressed after the decision to fire co-ordinator Bill Musgrave and replace him with untested Todd Downing.

The defensive line struggles with defense coordinator Ken Norton Jr., leading to a late-season firing and replacement with John Pagano.

When a deputy who was patting Wilson down after his arrest asked him what the bulge in his pocket was, Wilson replied, "My dick". Wilson's father subsequently provided agents with 15 firearms, including handguns and rifles and tactical body armor.


Gruden's 10-year, $100 million contract is the richest in National Football League coaching history and matches Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson (both with the Cowboys) for the longest, the Times reported.

Gruden spent four seasons as coach in Oakland from 1998-2001.

Gruden's $100 million contract with the Raiders is the largest in National Football League history. His Buccaneers beat the Raiders 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII.

By noting that nothing was official yet, Gruden is pretty much confirming that he will be the Raiders' next head coach. "We congratulate you as you head back to the sideline with the Raiders".

Other teams have also done it, with one of the most recent notable coaching hires being Joe Gibbs in Washington.
