Fans excited about Gruden leading the Raiders

Ultimately unsuccessful Teryl Austin courtship shows Jon Gruden going after top-flight staff Keep or Sweep: Raiders Offensive Free Agents

While the Oakland Raiders targeted, and landed, Jon Gruden to be their new coach, it appears as though they also interviewed USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin for the position.

Gruden has been with ESPN since 2009, mostly working as part of the Monday Night Football broadcast. "What a great way to send you off".

Questions about Gruden's "control" should be answered tomorrow when the Raiders introduce Gruden at team headquarters in Alameda. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season.

Rams head coach Sean McVay has often said how Gruden has been a mentor throughout the course of his young coaching career, especially considering Gruden hired McVay right out of college to be an offensive assistant in 2008.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following the end of a disappointing six-win season.

The report says the horse was chosen because Xi expressed interest in the riding skills of the guards. The gesture has been dubbed "horse diplomacy", France's version of China's "panda diplomacy".

Gruden won a Super Bowl with the Bucs during his first year with the team.

The offense regressed after the decision to fire coordinator Bill Musgrave and replace him with untested Todd Downing. His new contract with the Raiders is for 10 years and likely approaching $100 million, sources previously told ESPN's Adam Schefter, which will take him with the franchise to Las Vegas in 2020.

For Penn, who's started every game except two for the Raiders the past four seasons, the situation Gruden is about to step into is very similar to the one the Bay Area's National Basketball Association team faced in 2014.

In 2002 Davis famously traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for multiple draft picks.

You would hope Gruden is smart enough to let players with expiring contracts like Reggie Nelson walk off into the sunset, never to darken the doorstep of Raiders HQ again. Late owner Al Davis hired Art Shell in 2006, 11 years after firing him the first time. He came back in 2004 and had a 30-34 record in four seasons, leading Washington to two playoff berths.
