Raiders officially announce Jon Gruden as team's head coach

07 January 2018

As Gruden himself pointed out to broadcast partner Sean McDonough before the start of Saturday's wild-card matchup between the Chiefs and Titans: "Nothing's official yet, but these Chiefs fans have been on my back since I got here".

Gruden has been the analyst for ESPN's Monday Night Football since 2009.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the organization will sign Gruden to a 10-year contract, the longest in National Football League history, that will be worth approximately $100 million dollars when it is made official.

Reports of E. Coli bacteria found in romaine lettuce in Indiana
Though the source of infection is still unknown, the CDC is investigating leafy greens and romaine lettuce. The CDC is now interviewing sick people to determine what they ate in the week prior to getting sick.

The Raiders sent out a release announcing Gruden's return on the team's various social media platforms. He was traded after the 2001 season to Tampa Bay, where he won a Super Bowl his first year and had a 57-55 regular-season record in seven seasons.

"Well thank you", demurred Gruden, who is set to be introduced as the Raiders' head coach on Monday.

Gruden could be the latest coach to follow this path.

Islamabad deplores terrorist attack in Afghanistan
AFP quoted a security source as saying 20 people had been killed in the attack, which occurred about 8:30 p.m. local time. According to reports, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) loyalists have claimed responsibility behind the attack.

According to reports, Gruden already has plans to hire Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach Greg Olson as his offensive coordinator, Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther for the same role in Oakland, and Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia as special teams coordinator.

A top priority for Oakland's next head coach will be re-establishing Carr, who struggled this past 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. He came back in 2004 and had a 30-34 record in four seasons, leading Washington to two playoff berths. Ditka became legendary in the city thanks to leading the Bears to their only Super Bowl title following the 1985 season, but he was sacked after going 5-11 in 1992.
