Five Things To Know About Head Coach Jon Gruden

Gruden returns as Raiders' head coach

The Raiders officially announced Gruden will be their new head coach shortly after the game.

As Gruden himself pointed out to broadcast partner Sean McDonough before the start of Saturday's wild-card matchup between the Chiefs and Titans: "Nothing's official yet, but these Chiefs fans have been on my back since I got here".

"Bomb cyclone" to slam East Coast with more bitterly cold weather
It will be most intense over the open ocean near New England, but when it's gone the cold air behind it will flood south. East Coast, brace yourself for what is about to come: a nor'easter that forecasters are calling a " bomb cyclone ".

"Well thank you", demurred Gruden, who is set to be introduced as the Raiders' head coach on Monday.

Gruden reportedly will receive a 10-year contract worth $100 million.

Sears is closing over 100 more stores
The closures are part of an effort to "right size" its footprint and the company's finances, according to a news release. It has closed more than 1,000 stores in the past few years, including Kmarts in Fayetteville and Goldsboro last year.

The worst-kept secret of the week has been confirmed: Jon Gruden will return to coach the Oakland Raiders. In 2016, Oakland won 12 games, which gave Del Rio a four-year extension, but this season the team failed to deliver with a 6-10 2017 season.

With Gruden's impending return to the Silver & Black sidelines, it seems like the ideal time to take a look back at one of the most famous (infamous?) trades in Raiders history. The defence struggled mightily before a late-season switch from fired co-ordinator Ken Norton Jr.to play-caller John Pagano. He served in that role from 1998 through 2001, before being traded to Tampa Bay. Shell's firing came after one year, and after the Raiders ended the season 2-14. Paul Guenther will be his defensive coordinator with Rich Bisaccia as his special team's coach.

Alexa will soon be able to control ovens and microwaves
For example, a customer can say "Alexa, defrost three pounds of chicken" or "Alexa, microwave for 50 seconds on high". Amazon confirmed the feature had gone live in the USA , with other countries to follow shortly.

Last Wednesday, Gruden appeared on "Golic and Wingo" to talk about his future.to answer the obvious question: Is he going to be the Raiders' next coach? For ESPN, Gruden was present for the 2010 Rose Bowl and 2010 BCS National Championship game for ESPN radio. In 2009, Gruden got behind the ESPN color analyst desk for Monday Night Football. In 2011 he was on camera for the Outback and Orange Bowl games.
