NFL Coaching Rumors: Gruden To Head Over To Oakland Raiders?

Diversity group head believes Raiders could have already complied with Rooney Rule in Gruden pursuit

"I heard Stephen Smith screaming at me on TV yesterday on one of his shows", Gruden said. "And they've got to fix this vehicle and I am going to be intrigued with how Jon does that, along with Rich Gannon". "When he knows, I think we'll all know", Gruden said. Reports are that Davis' son and current owner and managing general partner Mark Davis ready to break the bank to lure the mastermind back to the sidelines and is even prepared to dangle a piece of ownership to get him. They both worked for the Green Bay Packers in 1994, when Gruden was in his a year ago as wide receivers coach and McKenzie joined the Packers' personnel department. The Raiders have just made another coaching change, and have just one winning record since the last time Jon Gruden coached them. Then there's Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio who didn't have a prior conversation about his future with owner Mark Davis before he announced his firing. "None, zero. That's a nice segment that I saw, but no, no ownership, that's for sure".

When Jon Gruden talked with Derek Carr at his 2014 QB Camp, he mentioned he would have liked to have coached his older brother, David, at Tampa Bay, but the Buccaneers traded away their first- and second-round picks to the Oakland Raiders in 2002 (the year David Carr went No. 1 to the Houston Texans) and their first-rounder in 2003 and second-rounder in 2004. I just want to sit here and speculate. "Whoever comes in here has a chance to take that nucleus and go to special places, and I'll be pulling for them". "When you interview people you know have the ability to do this job, you are not hurting them". Davis said Tuesday the Raiders had no comment beyond the initial statement. "I've known him a long time and I have a lot respect for the Raiders football organization".

"They're still, I believe, going through the interview process", Gruden said, a possible nod to the league's Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate for coaching vacancies. After another disappointing season, and with a move to Las Vegas on the horizon, the Raiders needed something to put fans in seats on game day.

Gruden will continue in his role as an ESPN analyst for Saturday's wild-card game between the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs.

"There's no truth to that at all", Gruden said.
