Peyton Manning the odds on favorite to replace Jon Gruden on MNF

Peyton Manning the odds on favorite to replace Jon Gruden on MNF

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

Jon Gruden will once again be the Raiders head coach after previously coaching the team from 1998-2001.

While the Raiders announced the hiring of Gruden on Saturday evening, they have yet to make public his coaching staff. McVay wouldn't commit to Olson taking the job with the Raiders.

The team made the announcement hours after Gruden called the AFC Wild Card Playoff Game between the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs for ESPN, his final broadcast for the network after nine years as a "Monday Night Football" analyst.

Martin was interviewed before the Raiders hired Gruden, who is scheduled to be introduced on Tuesday. His Buccaneers beat the Raiders 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII. The defense struggled mightily before a late-season switch from fired coordinator Ken Norton play-caller John Pagano.

The event is organized by the group Improv Everywhere, which says its goal is to cause "scenes of chaos and joy in public places". According to the report , the participants were told to act normal and not answer any questions by anyone regarding the event.

"I think Gruden is a wonderful quarterback coach and will be flawless for Derek Carr".

Of the six, two had a substantial role this past season. Even before Gruden signed his 10-year mega-deal, worth a reported $100 million, some criticized the Raiders for this hire, believing it was nothing more than appeasement for a fan base they were soon to leave behind in Oakland.

"I'm actually thrilled (about it) because Bob Myers and I had a conversation this morning and I said, "You know, Bob, Gruden's got one title and I've got two, ' Kerr said, a reference to the Warriors" two National Basketball Association championships compared to Gruden's one Super Bowl win with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers".

This would not mark the first time the Raiders brought back a coach for a second stint. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year. He's always been one of my favorite coaches. Gibbs stepped away following the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career.
