Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history

Steve Corkran on Twitter: Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history
Isaac Mcdaniel | 06 January, 2018, 02:10

ESPN reported Saturday that Raiders owner Mark Davis was prepared to pursue Gruden with a strong offer that could include an ownership stake in the team, which would have to be approved by National Football League owners.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the team is planning to introduce Gruden as their next head coach during a news conference on Tuesday.

Gruden is a familiar face to the Raiders franchise.

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

The Raiders fired Del Rio following a disappointing six-win season and talk immediately turned to Gruden, who has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay following the 2008 season.

"It's been a long couple of weeks", Gruden said in a recent interview after speaking with the Raiders organization.

Appearing on ESPN's Golic and Wingo (h/t Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com) on Wednesday, Gruden confirmed he has spoken with Raiders owner Mark Davis regarding the opening and added, "I think there's a good chance", when asked about whether he would accept the job.

Per ESPN's Jim Trotter, the Raiders complied by interviewing tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and "an unidentified college coach" earlier this week.

"We believe the Rooney Rule was complied with". "Minority candidates were interviewed and we will wait and see the decision they make".
