It's possible that Jon Gruden is just another Joe Gibbs

Even though he signed a four-year extension last offseason, the Raiders have fallen below.500 in 2017. But his connection with the Raiders and the fact that it was reported by Adam Schefter and Chris Mortenson, Gruden's colleagues at ESPN, lend this one more credibility.

CARSON, Calif. - There appears to be a real chance Jack Del Rio will be on the sideline Sunday for the final time as the Raiders' head coach. Rapoport would add that Davis and the Raiders have tried to bring Gruden back before, albeit unsuccessfully.

The Raiders, who are slated to move to Las Vegas in 2020, would need to get the approval of all owners to give Gruden a piece of the team. "Gruden's contract even could be backloaded to pay him more in the Nevada years and lessen his tax burden during the Oakland ones".

Gruden has eyed a return to coaching from afar in the ESPN booth.

During a 6-10 finish in 2017 that resulted in a third-place finish in the AFC West, the Raiders struggled under offensive coordinator Todd Downing, fueled by a mediocre passing attack and a ground game that lingered near the bottom of the National Football League rankings all season despite the Raiders' big-money commitments to offensive linemen Kelechi Osemele, Gabe Jackson and Donald Penn.

Gruden has always been rumored as a coaching candidate for multiple teams since entering the broadcast booth as color commentator for Monday Night Football back in 2009.

Viswanathan Anand Crowned World Rapid Chess Champion
This win was obviously a special moment for Anand, as he himself took to Twitter, to thank all those who wished him. I wasn't even planning to come to this tournament, because it was announced very late.

Said ESPN employee Gruden to ESPN: "I don't want to sit here and speculate". "I can't say I haven't taken any phone calls".

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden shouts instructions during their 16-13 overtime loss to the New England Patriots in an AFC Divisional playoff game in Foxboro, Mass. Saturday, Jan. 19, 2002.

Gruden was one of the up-and-coming coaches in the NFL.

As he has done previously, Gruden has started to assemble a possible staff, calling assistant coaches around the NFL. Gruden and Jack Del Rio actually share the same agent - talk about awkward - and there's a good chance Gruden doesn't want to talk about the job unless Del Rio is 100 percent out of the picture. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others. Yeah, sometimes owners. Guys want to bounce ideas off me.

The reasons for the Buccaneers deciding to keep coach Dirk Koetter possibly are becoming clearer. "Im here to help people".
