Jon Gruden has hilarious response to question about Raiders HC job

NFL 'I think I am being considered' for Raiders job says Gruden

Numerous reports have indicated that it is only a matter of time before the Oakland Raiders name Jon Gruden their next head coach, and the ESPN broadcaster all but confirmed that on Tuesday. "Asked directly about about ESPN report re: interest in Jon Gruden".

"He told me he loved me and appreciated all I did to get this program going in the right direction, but that he felt the need to change", Del Rio said. Gruden still has one broadcast to do for ESPN's coverage of Wild Card weekend, but after that it's expected that he'll be named the Raiders' new coach. Asked specifically if he was a candidate, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes".

Brutal cold continues… Wind Chill WARNING through Tuesday
Wind chill values will stay dangerously low through tonight , including the all-important midnight hour. Heading into New Year's Day , we'll see a mix of sun and clouds with highs only in the mid-20s.

Jon Gruden might return to coaching soon.

In his first two seasons as the Raiders head coach, Del Rio was seen as a messiah of sorts, taking a team that had a total of eleven wins over the course of the three years before, to a team with a 7-9 record in 2016 and an even better 12-4 in 2016.

The Lions concluded their season with a record of 9-7 while the Packers wrapped up their campaign with a 7-9 mark. Detroit rookie tight end Michael Roberts was inactive because of conduct detrimental to the team, Caldwell said.

Wooten pointed to the Raiders' history under late owner Al Davis and his son, Mark, in hiring minority candidates, from making Art Shell the first African-American head coach in modern National Football League history in 1989 and then bringing him back for a second stint in 2006. Jack Del Rio announced his own firing just moments after the Raiders lost their final game of 2017 to finish at 6-10, and it seems clear owner Mark Davis is hell bent on getting Gruden back. The Raiders must comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate during the hiring process.

"If I have to sit in the truck with my eyes closed, so be it".

For the past near decade, Gruden has been an ESPN analyst, with constant rumors around where and when he would return to the game. Under first-year coordinator Todd Downing, the group appeared to take a step back, particularly Carr and receiver Amari Cooper.

"[The Chiefs] played my brother [Jay] on Monday Night Football once, too", Gruden explained, "so there will be some awkward moments and we're probably going to laugh a little bit about it, but that'll be cool".
