Daily Dieter Podcast: Raiders move for Gruden reeks of desperation

Daily Dieter Podcast: Raiders move for Gruden reeks of desperation
daily-dieter-podcast-raiders-move-for-gruden-reeks-of-desperation

The Raiders have called a significant news conference for Tuesday, at which time they will introduce Gruden as the team's next coach.

 who coached Oakland from 1998 to 2001 and has been working as an ESPN analyst, [url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/]Womens Ethan Westbrooks Jersey[/url],is returning to the Raiders to replace Jack Del Rio,Gruden, who was fired after the regular-season finale Sunday.

Raiders owner Mark Davis was prepared to pursue Gruden with a strong offer that could include an ownership stake in the team,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/michael-brockers-jersey-authentic]Authentic Michael Brockers Jersey[/url], which would have to be approved by NFL owners.

The NFL on Friday said the Raiders have complied with the Rooney Rule in their coaching search.

"We believe the Rooney Rule was complied with. Minority candidates were interviewed," NFL executive vice president of communications Joe Lockhart said during a conference call. "We'll see what decision they make."

The Raiders have not identified their candidates for the head-coaching job.

Gruden will work under general manager Reggie McKenzie, who has turned down a request to interview for the Green Bay Packers' GM opening and is expected to remain with the Raider.

Gruden will become the 12th head coach since 1960 to have multiple stints with one team,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/lamarcus-joyner-jersey-authentic]Authentic Lamarcus Joyner Jersey[/url], and the 16-year gap between jobs with the Raiders is the largest in NFL history for a head coach with the same team.

 who holds the position of director of football operations, did not receive a promotion Monday,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/mark-barron-jersey-authentic]Authentic Mark Barron Jersey[/url],Wolf, when the Packers introduced Gutekunst as GM and announced changes to their management structure to include president Mark Murphy as the overseer of Gutekunst, executive vice president/football operations Russ Ball and coach Mike McCarthy.

” Gutekunst said of Wolf on Monday following his introductory news conference. “We have a great relationship. I’m very fond of the person, and the scout is excellent. I’ve told him that. I really want him to be here. But I also know he has other opportunities,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/mark-barron-jersey-authentic]Womens Mark Barron Jersey[/url],“I would envision him kind of being a right-hand man to me, and I wouldn’t hold him back from that because I care about him. But if he was here, I’d like to get him more involved in the college side of stuff and have a broader approach to what he’s been doing.”

 the coach they traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002,Trader's remorse? The Oakland Raiders reportedly want Jon Gruden, so badly that they are pursuing the ESPN analyst with an offer that includes an ownership stake in the team.

 who won a Super Bowl after that trade to Tampa Bay,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/michael-brockers-jersey-authentic]Womens Michael Brockers Jersey[/url], over the weekend, has been in the "Monday Night Football" booth since 2008, but every year rumors of his return to the field intensify as coaching openings crop up around the league. This season, most of that buzz centered on Tampa,Gruden, where he still lives. However, reports surfaced that the team would retain Dirk Koetter.

 according to the network, expected to be contenders in the AFC West, hopes to postpone a decision until after the 6-9 team finishes its disappointing regular season. Jack Del Rio, the team's coach, was signed to a contract extension over the summer,Gruden, but the Raiders, are instead mired in third place. Oakland has a lot going for it.

 a shocking move at the time. "You never try to get too surprised in this business, but this certainly was surprising,The Raiders traded Gruden to Tampa Bay for four draft picks and $8 million in 2002," Gruden said then, and went on to sign a five-year deal with the Bucs that more than tripled his salary in Oakland.

 he headed for the booth, where he worked with Mike Tirico. Since then, a Redskins strength coach. However, he reportedly has not meshed well with Sean McDonough and, at 54, is ready to coach again,After winning a Super Bowl, conceivably alongside his son, Deuce, an ownership stake would require the approval of the other owners in the league and they may be reluctant to approve it because of the precedent it would set. The finance committee would also have to sign off after vetting his finances.

" Gruden said Saturday. "I can't say I haven't taken any phone calls. I take a lot every year from coaches,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/lamarcus-joyner-jersey-authentic]Womens Lamarcus Joyner Jersey[/url], some others. ... Yeah,Gruden had little to say to the Raiders. "I don't want to sit here and speculate. ... There is no news to report, sometimes owners. Guys want to bounce ideas off me. I'm here to help people."

 typically, Gruden shoots them down after a day or two of helping fan the flames. As long ago as late July,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/]Womens Maurice Alexander Jersey[/url],These Grumors crop up all the time and, he admitted to Pewter Report that he had met with "several people."

 I talk about coming back to coach. I'm not in here every day at 4:30 or 4:00 in the morning watching pinball. I'm preparing myself to come back. I am. Every day,"Just about every year,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/alec-ogletree-jersey-authentic]Authentic Alec Ogletree Jersey[/url]," he said. "I'm preparing to come back.

NFL reporter Adam Caplan said Raiders tight ends coach Bobby Johnson was one. Johnson coached his position all three years under Jack Del Rio and was well respected among his position group and the offensive line. Del Rio's assistants have been told they can look for work elsewhere.

The Raiders have come under some fire for having a coach virtually lined up before the hiring process truly began, though they aren't the first team to lock on to a candidate and beeline for him.

The Silver and Black have pioneered minority hiring in the NFL. The late owner Al Davis hired the league first Hispanic head coach, the first African-American head coach  and the first female CEO.

 and it could certainly be amended to ensure minority candidates get a fairer shake, but having that requirement is better than not having one at all. In this particular instance,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/alec-ogletree-jersey-authentic]Womens Alec Ogletree Jersey[/url],The Rooney Rule has its critics, though, any candidate will have a near-impossible task shaking the job from Gruden's grasp.

 while Gruden is reportedly not going to be getting ownership or equity in the team, he's going to make an absurd amount of money if this is true. As Business Insider reported,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/trumaine-johnson-jersey-authentic]Authentic Trumaine Johnson Jersey[/url],So, a deal this size would be the richest in NFL history. Currently, they point out that Bill Belichick is currently believed to be the highest-paid coach with a salary somewhere in the $7-9 million per year range.

A fully guaranteed deal of $10 million per year for five or more years to a coach is amazing. Tack on potential bonuses and other ways for him to earn more money and this becomes somewhat ridiculous.

It's wildly apparent that Davis is looking to do anything possible to make sure that he gets his man in Gruden, even if that winds up meaning he has to break the bank to do so.

” said Michael Signora,[url=http://www.ramsfootballauthentic.com/]Authentic Maurice Alexander Jersey[/url],“We have not yet finalized the schedule of 2018 international games, vice president of football communications.

But a trip to London could be on the Raiders’ calendar for the 2018 season.

The Raiders have played a “home” game in Mexico City each of the past two years. One of their eight home games also was played abroad in 2014 when traveling to London. The club reportedly will play an international “home” game the fourth time in five years, traveling to London in 2018.
