Raiders to introduce Jon Gruden as head coach on Tuesday

Jon Gruden's 10-year deal with Raiders to approach $100M

Steve Corkran on Twitter:

The Raiders are planning a news conference Tuesday to introduce Gruden as their next head coach.

ESPN reported that Gruden would receive a 10-year deal that will be the longest coaching contract in NFL history and could be worth close to $100 million United States, which would make him the highest-paid coach in league history.

Gruden has been out of coaching for nine years while serving as the lead analyst for ESPN's "Monday Night Football" telecast.

Oakland traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he won a Super Bowl in his first season in 2003.

The last time Gruden coached the Raiders was January 19, 2002 against the New England Patriots. ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders.

There had been concerns that she could face up to 25 years in jail, or even the death penalty. "She's the kindest person". The trial was rescheduled with a new interpreter on Tuesday, where a judge handed her three years in prison.

Gruden will replace former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, who was sacked Sunday after a disappointing six-win season.

The 54-year-old native of Sandusky, OH has been out of the coaching ranks since the conclusion of the 2008 season.

Gruden posted a 38-26 record with Oakland from 1998-2001, guiding the team to a pair of playoff berths and the AFC Championship game in his last two seasons. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons.

Also joining Gruden's staff will be Dallas' Rich Bisaccia as special teams coordinator.

Several assistant coaches have already been hired by the Raiders in anticipation of Gruden's hiring.
