Jon Gruden to come out of retirement and rejoin Raiders as coach

Jon Gruden to come out of retirement and rejoin Raiders as coach

Jon Gruden will be announced as the new head coach of the Oakland Raiders at a press conference on Tuesday, according to multiple media reports.

The previous coach Jack Del Rio was sacked after the last game of the season, and Gruden is set to interview with them Monday. During that time, the Raiders won two AFC West titles and advanced to the conference championship once. His last game with Oakland was the infamous "Tuck Rule" game during the 2002 playoffs that helped launch the Patriots dynasty. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons.

Current Los Angeles Rams quarterback coach Greg Olson will be Oakland's offensive coordinator, while former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther will serve in the same capacity under Gruden.

Appearing on ESPN's Golic and Wingo (h/t Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com) on Wednesday, Gruden confirmed he has spoken with Raiders owner Mark Davis regarding the opening and added, "I think there's a good chance", when asked about whether he would accept the job. He coached the Raiders for four seasons from 1998-2001. But the National Football League said Friday that the Raiders have complied with the policy in their coaching search.

"I can tell you we believe the Rooney Rule was complied with", Lockhart said.

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