Raiders make it official: Jon Gruden is their new coach

Officer Camilleri's Wife Receives His CHP Badge

Sean McDonough was effusive in his praise of Jon Gruden, whom he says will be missed greatly as Gruden departs to coach the Oakland Raiders.

The former Oakland head coach will be introduced on Tuesday, a little over two weeks after owner Mark Davis fired Jack Del Rio after the Raiders' 30-10 loss to the Chargers.

ESPN reported that Gruden will receive a 10-year deal that could be worth close to $100 million. "It'll be tough for a lot of us on the crew to be impartial when we go into those production meetings and see you next year".

In 2008, the Super Bowl-winning Head Coach parted ways with the Buccaneers, and ventured into the broadcast booth. Gruden originally attended college at Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio, but transferred after a year to the University of Dayton where he played football for three years as the backup quarterback.

According to Jim Trotter of ESPN, the Packers requested an interview with Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, but McKenzie declined. He was 2-2 in the postseason, losing in the AFC title game following the 2000 season and the divisional round in 2001.

Gruden beat the Raiders in the Super Bowl in his first season with the Buccaneers but didn't win another playoff game for Tampa Bay in his final six seasons.

It had been a poorly kept secret in recent days Gruden was going to coach the Raiders, but McDonough really let the cat out of the bag.

Other teams have also done it, with one of the most recent notable coaching hires being Joe Gibbs in Washington. He came back in 2004 and had a 30-34 record in four seasons, leading Washington to two playoff berths.
