Oakland Raiders to name Jon Gruden head coach on Tuesday

Steve Corkran on Twitter:

The Raiders' owner and managing general owner also may include an ownership stake in the offer to Gruden, also reported by Schefter.

ESPN is reporting the Oakland Raiders are calling a news conference for Tuesday at which time they will introduce Jon Gruden as the team's next head coach.

Gruden's contract will be worth around $100 million over 10 years, according to Schefter.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio as their coach last Sunday, just after completing a 6-10 season.

The Raiders have not identified their candidates for the head-coaching job.

Gruden spent four seasons as coach in Oakland from 1998-2001.


Gruden famously won Super Bowl XXXVII with the Tampa Bay Bucs back in 2003. when he beat the Raiders.

He went 38-26 with the Raiders, making two playoff appearances, before posting a 57-55 record in Tampa. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons.

Gruden has been lining up potential members of his coaching staff.

Current Los Angeles Rams quarterback coach Greg Olson will be Oakland's offensive coordinator, while former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther will serve in the same capacity under Gruden.

The team's pursuit of Gruden raised questions as to whether the Raiders complied with the Rooney Rule, which requires each National Football League franchise with a head coaching vacancy to interview at least one minority candidate.
