Oakland Raiders Eyeing Jon Gruden

Oakland Raiders Eyeing Jon Gruden

It appears it's not merely a pipe dream for the Raiders to persuade Gruden to re-join the head coaching ranks, as the report mentions that Gruden will be tempted to accept the offer, but would choose to wait until the end of the 2017 season to make his decision.

A surprise candidate has emerged as a potential destination for Jon Gruden's seemingly inevitable return to coaching, but it probably should not have been a surprise at all - the Oakland Raiders.

That means that ESPN's report that stated Davis not only ready to pursue Gruden but also offer him a partial ownership stake in the team has to be far more than pure conjecture or speculation.

A Raiders-Jon Gruden reunion may be on the horizon.

Gruden, according to the network, hopes to postpone a decision until after the 6-9 team finishes its disappointing regular season. They have lost three consecutive games.

McDonald followed up with Gruden via a phone call shortly after ESPN dropped the bombshell Saturday night, and Gruden's response was equally as coy as Davis'. But attempting to go back to the future with a retread coach isn't something that has proven to work in the National Football League in the past. You know? I'm preparing myself to come back. I am. He was awarded a four-year extension in February.

The Raiders made the AFC championship game under Bill Callahan, but were beaten 48-21 by Gruden's Bucs in Super Bowl XXXVII.

After departing from the Raiders, Gruden moved on to become the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002-2008.

But this time, Gruden would be given enough power in Oakland to be able to reshape the front office, coaching staff and entire organization, though there still are some holdovers from when he coached there.
