Gruden on Raiders offer: `C'mon man . . . I've got nothing to report'

Gruden on Raiders offer: `C'mon man . . . I've got nothing to report'

The Oakland Raiders are hoping to reunite with former head coach Jon Gruden and plan to offer him their head coaching job along with an ownership stake in the team, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

After leading the Raiders to a 12-4 record last season, Del Rio and the Raiders were expected to challenge the New England Patriots for AFC supremacy, but have instead stumbled to the finish line and will finish either 6-10 or 7-9 after playing the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. The two report that Gruden would be "tempted to accept" a Raiders offer. If he doesn't there's a good chance that Del Rio sticks around for another year before the franchise moves to Las Vegas. If so, that would be one of the various factors for Gruden to weigh when deciding whether to return to coaching.

Gruden has also become something of a quarterback guru through his QB Camp series on ESPN ahead of the National Football League draft every year.

Even if Gruden's deal is not approved because of the ownership condition, his contract could be negotiated in a way that would pay him a commensurate amount if fellow owners or the finance committee did not approve the deal.

The "Monday Night Football" analyst wouldn't comment on the possibility of a return to Oakland. I can't say I haven't taken any phone calls.

Yeah, sometimes owners. Guys want to bounce ideas off me. His teams missed the playoffs in five of the 11 seasons he coached and after his first year in Tampa (where he won a Super Bowl), the Bucs fell short of expectations every campaign. "I'm here to help people", Gruden said.

If Gruden did end up back in Oakland, then he'd be given the power to transform the entire organization, including the front office and coaching staff, per the report. This year, there are many sources who believe the Raiders are preparing to make another offer so enticing that it will be hard for Gruden to turn down.
