Jon Grudens 10-year deal with Raiders likely to approach $100M

Jon Grudens 10-year deal with Raiders likely to approach $100M

The Oakland Raiders will sign Jon Gruden to one of the longest coaching deals in NFL history -- a 10-year contract likely approaching $100 million -- when it is made official Tuesday, sources on Friday.

The length of Gruden's contract is not unprecedented. The Dallas Cowboys gave Jimmy Johnson (in 1989) and Tom Landry (in 1964) 10-year deals as well.

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

Gruden, is returning to the Raiders to replace Jack Del Rio, who coached Oakland from 1998 to 2001 and has been working, who was fired after the regular-season finale Sunday.

Saturday that Raiders owner Mark Davis was prepared to pursue Gruden with a strong offer that could include an ownership stake in the team, which would have to be approved by NFL owners.

Raiders players have a contract with an average annual value of at least $10 million -- Derek Carr ($24.97 million), Kelechi Osemele ($11.7 million) and Gabe Jackson ($11 million).

The date of the official announcement was first reported by RaidersSnakepit.com.

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.

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

Gruden will become the 12th head coach since 1960 to have multiple stints with one team, and the 16-year gap between jobs with the Raiders is the largest in NFL history for a head coach with the same team.

He had a regular-season record of 38-26 during his first stop with the Raiders and went 2-2 in two postseason appearances prior to being traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two first-round picks, two second-round picks and $8 million in 2012.

He won Super Bowl XXXVII in his first season with Tampa Bay, and he has a career 95-81 record in the regular season while going 5-4 in the postseason.

When former Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio was fired after the team's Week 17 game, the proof that it likely is not, as Trotter points, it seemed that McKenzie's job could be in danger as well. But,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/fletcher-cox-jersey-authentic]Womens Fletcher Cox Jersey[/url], comes from his decision to turn down this interview request.

There's a lot of work to be done with the Raiders current roster, and many things could change this offseason. It'll be worth watching to see what type McKenzie and Gruden can do together in order to lead the Silver and Black back to the playoffs in 2018.

The Raiders and former coach Jon Gruden seem destined to reunite, but that didn’t stop the team from doing its due diligence in satisfying the NFL’s Rooney Rule this week.

The Rooney Rule requires NFL teams to interview at least one minority candidate for the general manager or head coaching positions when they become available. By satisfying it,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/torrey-smith-jersey-authentic]Womens Torrey Smith Jersey[/url], the team will avoid a fine.

Much has been made of the apparent mockery that the team has made of the Rooney Rule by seemingly already having their guy pegged in Jon Gruden over the past week. With many feeling that Johnson and the other currently unnamed candidate the team interviewed haven’t gotten a fair shake given how the Gruden reports and news has been flying in since Saturday.

The rule isn’t perfect, and not every candidate will get a fair shake if a team already has their hearts set on another non-minority candidate. But it is certainly better than not having any rule in place and we now know that Oakland did their part to satisfy the rule in its current form.

 he went 25-23 -- including a 12-4 record in 2016 -- but for owner Mark Davis,The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio on Sunday. We know this because Del Rio announced the news at what turned out to be his final post-game press conference with the team. In three seasons,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/timmy-jernigan-jersey-authentic]Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey[/url], the thought of landing Jon Gruden was too much to ignore.

 where he coached from 1998-2001,The reports of Gruden's return to Oakland, have been percolating for more than a week and by Monday morning the rumors were pretty clear: It was going to happen.

"That's up to Mark Davis,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/ronald-darby-jersey-authentic]Authentic Ronald Darby Jersey[/url], I think we'll all know," he said. "I've had good conversations with Mark and they're still going through the interview process. When he knows, but I appreciate Adam [Schefter] and Chris [Mortensen's] confidence that I have a chance of getting that job -- it's awful nice though."

But what if Davis says Gruden's his guy, will he be the next coach of the Raiders?

"I think there's a good chance,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/brandon-graham-jersey-authentic]Authentic Brandon Graham Jersey[/url]," Gruden said.

But here's the thing: Gruden hasn't been an NFL coach since 2008. So much has changed in that time -- from the rules to schemes to player evaluation and roster building -- that it's fair to wonder if the game has passed Gruden by.

"I'm excited about where I'm at in terms of studying the game and am prepared to come back and coach," Gruden explained before repeating things we've heard several times in recent days.

 I gotta be honest with you. It's been a long couple weeks. I know they've gone through their process of interviewing candidates. And until they're done I won't know but I did have a good meeting with Mark,"I just don't want to sit here and speculate. ... I don't know what's gonna happen, I've known him a long time and I got a lot of respect for the Raider football organization."

 Gruden had a .509 winning percentage with Brad Johnson,When Gruden is hired, Brian Griese, Chris Simms, where he won a Super Bowl following the 2002 season. He'll also have something he never did in Tampa Bay: A franchise quarterback. Derek Carr is coming off a disappointing season but he was a legit MVP candidate in 2016. In seven seasons in Tampa, he'll return to Oakland with a 95-81 career record that spans 11 seasons. He was 38-26 with the Raiders and 57-55 with the Buccaneers, Jeff Garcia, Luke McCown and Bruce Gradkowski under center.

There have been rumors that the Raiders offered Gruden an ownership stake, which he flatly denied.

 When owner Mark Davis envisions the Las Vegas Raiders, state-of-the-art stadium. Fireballs and music fill a 65,000-seat dome. Legendary alumni look on, he imagines a team in silver and black sprinting onto the turf of a new, linking the franchise’s past and future. Quarterback Derek Carr and defensive end Khalil Mack are among those in uniform.

Davis could visualize Jon Gruden as the Raiders’ head coach in 2020.

He will be, and he starts next week after agreeing to the richest and one of the longest coaching deals in NFL history.

 sources said Friday. Some of the financials are backloaded beyond the deal’s first two years,Gruden is set to sign a 10-year contract worth $100 million, taking into account the absence of state income taxes in Nevada. The Raiders are scheduled to relocate from Oakland to Las Vegas in 2020.

Davis reportedly will introduce Gruden at a Tuesday news conference. A team spokesman said he was unable to confirm those reports, but a formal announcement to that effect is anticipated in the coming days.

Gruden,first will fulfill a final broadcast assignment before arriving in the Bay Area. He will work Saturday’s playoff game between the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs.

The Raiders are ready to roll out the red carpet for the 54-year-old.

Or more aptly, green.

Gruden’s contract carries unprecedented worth and — with that — job security. He previously served as the Raiders’ coach from 1998 to 2001. Since then, including one single-season interim choice, [url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/jalen-mills-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jalen Mills Jersey[/url],none of the franchise’s nine head coaches, have lasted more than three years. Davis has discontinued the carousel ride. He also got his man.

It is no secret in league circles that Davis, long has coveted Gruden. His father, Al Davis, who couldn’t be reached for comment,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/torrey-smith-jersey-authentic]Authentic Torrey Smith Jersey[/url], traded the coach to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002 for a package that included two first-round and two second-round draft picks.

Gruden and the Bucs won the Super Bowl for the 2002 season over the Raiders. After Gruden was fired following the 2008 campaign, he entered broadcasting.

If Mark Davis had his way, Gruden would have rejoined the Raiders long ago.

He tried in 2012,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/timmy-jernigan-jersey-authentic]Authentic Timmy Jernigan Jersey[/url], but Gruden decided the timing was not ideal. Dennis Allen was hired.

Davis tried again in 2015, but Gruden again decided the timing was not suitable. Jack Del Rio was hired.

Those failed attempts laid the groundwork to this current deal, effectively streamlining what otherwise would have been a more complex negotiation.

Interest in a reunion was mutual. Gruden,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/ronald-darby-jersey-authentic]Womens Ronald Darby Jersey[/url], feels a sense of “unfinished business” with the Raiders, a source close to him said this week. Each time he considered a return to coaching, who is nicknamed Chucky for his facial expressions,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/jalen-mills-jersey-authentic]Womens Jalen Mills Jersey[/url], Gruden considered the coaching staff he would like to assemble.

That staff is coming along. When including Gruden,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/brent-celek-jersey-authentic]Authentic Brent Celek Jersey[/url], it is considered the highest-compensated staff in NFL history.

Greg Olson, will reprise the coordinator role he held for Oakland in 2013 and 2014. His second year overlapped with quarterback Derek Carr’s rookie season, former Raiders offensive coordinator and Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach,[url=http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/brandon-graham-jersey-authentic]Womens Brandon Graham Jersey[/url], offering familiarity amid sweeping changes. Bill Musgrave was Carr’s coordinator in 2015 and 2016. Todd Downing was in 2017.

Olson received a four-year deal, the Cincinnati Bengals’ defensive coordinator of the past four seasons. He joins the staff as Gruden’s defensive coordinator, with Rich Bisaccia the special teams coordinator, a source said. So did Paul Guenther, sources said.

Bisaccia worked for Gruden in the same role during the entirety of Gruden’s tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002 to 2008. There was no other coach Gruden envisioned to lead his special teams unit.

 the expectation was for Gruden to be introduced as early as next week. Steve ,In recent days

The Raiders are coming off a 6-10 campaign. Davis fired Del Rio on Dec. 31, notifying the coach of his decision at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, shortly after a 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
