The announcement was made about 90 minutes after Gruden worked as the analyst on ESPN's coverage of the AFC playoff game at Kansas City between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans. Paul Guenther, who has served as the team's defensive coordinator for the past four seasons since replacing Mike Zimmer, now the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, is joining Jon Gruden's staff in the same capacity with the Oakland Raiders. But I know you're looking forward to getting back to coaching. "Thank you, it's been a great run".

Gruden's new contract is expected to be a 10-year deal worth $100million ahead of his introduction on Tuesday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the organization will sign Gruden to a 10-year contract, the longest in National Football League history, that will be worth approximately $100 million dollars when it is made official. If the Raiders can fix their defense they will be a very scary team.

Gruden previously coached the Raiders from 1998 through 2001, compiling a 38-26 regular-season record and a 2-2 record in two playoff appearances.

Similar drama unfolded on the Titans' final drive, when Henry was hit by Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters and the ball came loose. On the drive, Mariota converted three third downs, two through the air and one on a nifty scramble to the right for 17 yards.

Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history
His last game with Oakland was the infamous "Tuck Rule" game during the 2002 playoffs that helped launch the Patriots dynasty. He amassed a 57-55 record in seven seasons as Tampa Bay's coach.

Gruden was traded to the Buccaneers and won the Super Bowl in his first season, beating the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII. He last coached the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. Bay Area reported on December 31 that Raiders owner Mark Davis was prepared to offer Gruden that deal, which would need ratifying by the NFL's other owners. If anyone can get Derek Carr back on track, it is Gruden.

Gruden could be the latest coach to follow this path. "Let's go win some championships".

DICK VERMEIL: Vermeil had a successful seven-year run as coach of Philadelphia from 1976-82, taking the Eagles to their first Super Bowl following the 1980 season. He was sacked by Tampa Bay following the 2008 season and has spent the past nine years as an announcer at ESPN. Chiefs fans, apparently, remembered.
