Jon Gruden hopes he's being considered for the Raiders job. LOL

Jon Gruden hopes he's being considered for the Raiders job. LOL

Del Rio said owner Mark Davis told him after the team's season-ending 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday that he would not be retained as coach in Oakland.

Jon Gruden said Wednesday there's a "good chance" he'd become the Oakland Raiders' new head coach if team owner Mark Davis offered him the position. It has been nearly 20 years that Gruden was hired on January 8, 1998 to be head coach of the Raiders, for whom he coached through the 2001 season.

Gruden, who coached Oakland from 1998 to 2001, would return to the Raiders to replace Jack Del Rio, who was sacked after Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Jon Gruden coaches the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. "We have to take our ownership as players and I think that's where we're at right now".

It has been almost a decade since Gruden last coached in the NFL - he has actually been with ESPN on "Monday Night Football" longer (eight years) than he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (seven years).

The Raiders already fired Del Rio and Tuesday morning on WFAN, Boomer Esiason said that it's considered a "done deal". Guys want to bounce ideas off me. Imagine going up to your girlfriend of three years and saying, "I'm going to propose to this other girl I dated from 1999 to 2001 and if she says no, then I'll probably propose to you".

The Duchess released pictures of her newborn daughter in 2015, taken at her and William's home in Norfolk, Anmer Hall. There is no doubt that the people at Willcocks are probably impressed with Charlotte as well.

As such, it figures to be a busy off-season in the Bay Area as the team prepares to move to Las Vegas for the 2020 season.

Vermeil coached the Philadelphia Eagles in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Gruden shot down that report.

Now, Jack Del Rio is still the Raiders' head coach, and was signed to a contract extension in February after leading the Raiders to a 12-4 record in 2016.

The Raiders finished the season losing four straight, with Carr shouldering some of the blame for the downturn. Gruden has a sweet gig with ESPN, watching tape with draft prospects and bringing his Jack Burton routine to national broadcasts.

While getting fired and rumors of getting fired go with the territory, it's a shame that Del Rio finds himself in the middle of this. They both worked for the Green Bay Packers in 1994, when Gruden was in his past year as wide receivers coach and McKenzie joined the Packers' personnel department. Were kind of angry we let it get to that.
