Raiders officially announce hiring of Gruden as coach

Steve Kerr jokes he needs to talk to Warriors GM after seeing Jon Gruden's $100 million deal

The longtime head coach will reportedly sign a 10-year, $100 million contract.

A day before the Raiders fired Jack Del Rio, Adam Schefter filed a report that the Raiders were heavily pursuing Gruden.

He's expected to remain the GM for the Raiders under new coach Jon Gruden.

The Raiders touted Gruden's hire as "unfinished business" after Gruden went 38-26 in four seasons as the team's head coach from 1998-2001.

Jon Gruden is heading back to Oakland.

The team announced the move Saturday as soon as Gruden finished his final broadcast as an announcer for ESPN. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year. He added fuel to the fire this summer when he talked about the prospect of coming back to coach with PewterReport.com, a Tampa Bay Buccaneers news site. He has a 95-81 career record. The 54-year-old is a quarterback and offensive guru-he won a Super Bowl with Brad Johnson; Rich Gannon's best years were spent under his tutelage; and he's become arguably even more famous, and parodied, since then with his Quarterback Camps. Washington and Oakland are not scheduled to play again until 2021.

"Well, thank you." Gruden said. Gruden is the flawless match for Oakland and will bring several talented coaches with him.

A second person with knowledge of the team's plans said one of the minority candidates who interviewed was tight ends coach Bobby Johnson. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year. Gibbs stepped away following the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career. In fact, Cincinnati has been one of the most frequent sources to find first-time head coaches over the past decade.
