Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history

Raiders to give Gruden longest contract in history

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

The Raiders fired head coach Jack Del Rio after the last game of this season, a move seen by many as a big signal that the team's talks with Gruden were serious.

The Oakland Raiders have apparently completed their interview process and decided on their next head coach, and you will never guess who landed the job.




Gruden, who was hired by ESPN in 2009, reportedly already has made some key hires to his coaching staff. Gruden accumulated a 38-26 overall record as the Raiders coach and was 2-2 in playoff games during his four seasons.

The last time Gruden coached the Raiders was January 19, 2002 against the New England Patriots. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons.

"We believe the Rooney Rule was complied with".

The Raiders have complied with the "Rooney Rule" and interviewed minority candidates for the job, according to National Football League spokesman Joe Lockhart. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year. He served as an assistant coach for the Green Bay Packers before taking command of the Raiders in 1998. He came back in 2004 and had a 30-34 record in four seasons, leading Washington to two playoff berths.
