Jon Gruden confirms he will call plays for Raiders

Posted Января 10, 2018

That ended up being Gruden's past year coaching, before serving almost a decade as ESPN's "Monday Night Football" analyst. Gruden initially coached the Raiders from 1998-2001.

Join us in this post for live updates throughout the day on the scene at the facility, notable quotes from Gruden's press conference and more from Chucky's return to Oakland.

The Raiders are clearly all in on Gruden.

Looking for a fresh start in 2018, the Oakland Raiders officially introduced Jon Gruden as their new head coach at a press conference Tuesday. Owner Mark Davis brought Gruden to the podium as "Hells Bells" played over the loud speakers.

The team announced the move Saturday as soon as Gruden finished his. I've paid very close attention to it.

Oakland confirmed it interviewed the college coach before hiring Jon Gruden. "But I want to win". His final game with Oakland was among the most controversial losses in National Football League history, when the Raiders lost to the New England Patriots on the infamous Tom Brady "Tuck Rule" non-fumble call. Tampa Bay hasn't been back to the playoffs since Gruden was sacked. It's about the tempo that we establish as a coaching staff so with that said, I got a lot to prove, I know that.

Gruden declined to get into specifics of his monstrous contract - playing coy - and joked (maybe?) that he has a no-trade clause in his deal this time.

One of the attractions to the Raiders for Gruden is working with their young quarterback, Derek Carr.

"In my heart I feel this is the thing to do", Gruden said when asked about why the timing was finally right.

Gruden made it clear that McKenzie would continue to be the team's general manager and said personnel decisions would be a collaborative effort.
