Raiders owner on Jon Gruden hire: It's a big f'ing deal

Oakland Raiders new head coach Jon Gruden speaks Justin Sullivan
Cassandra Gardner | 10 January, 2018, 00:39

But the National Football League has evolved significantly since Gruden was last in it and to throw such outlay at a coach who has only gone to the playoffs in five of his 11 seasons as a head coach is a substantial gamble that could backfire significantly for a franchise looking for success, stability and good PR heading into the relocation to Las Vegas in 2019 or 2020.

Gruden coached the Raiders to a 38-26 record from 1998-2001.

Jon Gruden showed you can go home again, returning to the franchise where he began his coaching career two decades ago.

Gruden confirmed Rams quarterbacks coach Greg Olson will pilot his offensive coordinator, and Bengals ex-D coordinator Paul Guenther will steer the Raiders defense.

Saying he never wanted to be traded from the Oakland Raiders to Tampa Bay in the first place, Jon Gruden returned as the head coach of the Silver and Black, almost 20 years to the day after he was hired there the first time. "Never been more appropriate than today", Mark Davis proclaimed Tuesday as he announced the hiring of coach Jon Gruden.

It was a spectacle viewing the Gruden introductory press conference, no matter how you ended up seeing it.

"How long I say here will be determined by how well we play".

"I love the excitement and the thrill of competing".

Gruden has been gathering a coaching staff in advance of Tuesday's expected announcement. "This is what I want to do, this is the organization that I want to be a part of and I'm all in".

"I have a lot to prove", Gruden acquiesced. Oakland won 12 games in 2016 to earn Del Rio a four-year extension but the team fell flat this season.

I don't know whose idea it was to kick off a press conference with a hype video, but I can get behind that idea. That deal was an obvious source of quizzing from the media, questions Gruden deftly deflected. Obviously, Derek Carr is a huge reason Gruden took the job.
