Jon Gruden Expected To Become Head Coach Of Raiders

Gruden declined to specifically comment about the Raiders this past weekend, saying "there is no news to report".

That all led to the decision to fire Del Rio, whose 187 games as a head coach are the most for anyone without a division title in his career.

"It's simple, you don't make that move with Jack Del Rio unless you know you can get Jon Gruden", Schefter said on ESPN. Davis only fired Del Rio because he thought he could seriously pry Gruden out of the ESPN booth anyway.

Pagano went 53-45 in six seasons in Indianapolis, missing the playoffs the last three years.

Jordan Ayew Scores In Swansea City Win At Watford
The 26-year-old increased his tally to three goals in 21 league games as newly appointed Carlos Carvalhal registered his first win at the helm.

Gruden, 54, has been reluctant to return to the NFL in part because of his high-paying job with ESPN on Monday Night Football and because he has been vocal in his distaste for NFLPA-mandated restrictions on practice and training time.

At this point, it seems a foregone conclusion that the Oakland Raiders will be hiring Jon Gruden for a second go-round heading into the 2018 season. But again, Gruden has not coached since 2008. Under the league's Rooney Rule, the Raiders also must interview at least one minority candidate for their head coaching job. Right now, the Raiders sit at 6-9, with three straight losses, have already been eliminated from playoff contention and are headed to Los Angeles to face the Chargers in the regular season finale. When they win, sometimes you get the feeling that they can beat anybody.

"Though I did run into him in the elevator at the hotel in Philadelphia", kicker Giorgio Tavecchio said.

The Raiders had major drops in scoring (26 to 18.8), yards per game (373.3 to 324.1) and committed twice as many turnovers (14 to 28) this season as Carr took a major step back in his development after signing a $125 million, five-year extension in the offseason. "I hope I'm a candidate".
