'Unfinished business': Raiders announce Jon Gruden's return

A person with knowledge of the team's plans said the Raiders are planning a news conference Tuesday to announce that Gruden is leaving the broadcast booth to come back to coaching.

At the end of ESPN's coverage of the Titans upset win over the Chiefs in Kansas City, Sean McDonough offered a heartfelt, touching goodbye to outgoing analyst Jon Gruden.

Gruden reportedly is set to strike a deal for 10 years and $100 million to be the Raiders' next head coach, ESPN reported Friday.


After Gruden worked on ESPN's broadcast of the Tennessee Titans' win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the National Football League wildcard clash, the Raiders announced Gruden as their coach.

Gruden was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and won the Super Bowl in his first season, beating the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII. Gruden is the flawless match for Oakland and will bring several talented coaches with him. The cynic in me believes that has played a not insignificant role in the decision to name Gruden as head coach, and to do so in the manner in which it has unfolded. Gibbs returned to coaching in 2004 and his second stint in Washington wasn't almost as effective as his first. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season. Shell had spent his first six years away from the Raiders as an assistant coach but had been out of the profession entirely for five seasons when Davis hired him a second time.

Fellow Oakland coach Steve Kerr said he was thrilled for Gruden, but also noted that it was a lot more than he is making. The team went 30-34 in his four seasons, making the playoffs twice and winning one game before retiring again. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year.
