Raiders to name Jon Gruden as their new head coach

By on January 5, 2018

Guess who’s coming back? That’s right Jon Gruden is back with the Silver and Black.

The Oakland Raiders have scheduled a news conference for Tuesday afternoon where they will officially announced Gruden as their new head coach.

The 54-year old previously coached the Raiders for four seasons from 1998-2001. During that time, he led the team to a combined 38-26 regular season record, two first-place finishes in the AFC West and a trip to the Superbowl in his final season with the franchise.

Gruden hasn’t coached in the NFL since his seven-year tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended following the 2008 season.

He has been working as a colour analyst on ESPN for Monday Night Football since 2009, and has also served as an TV analyst for postseason college football games.
