Raiders Reportedly Planning to Pursue Jon Gruden

ESPN broadcaster and former head coach Jon Gruden could be pursued by the Oakland Raiders to get back into coaching

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen are reporting Saturday night that the Raiders are set to make a significant offer to Gruden - one that could include partial ownership of the team. Said focus is on winning [the] next game.

Del Rio did a very good job two years ago leading Oakland to a 12-win season and an AFC West title, but thanks to an assortment of injuries and a less-than-stellar this year the Raiders may be planning to move on. [And Davis] wouldn't touch it.

Jon Gruden hasn't coached in the National Football League since 2008, but every offseason, he's one of the most-talked candidates for vacant jobs.

Gruden, who coached the Raiders from 1998 through the 2001 season, last coached with the Tampa Bay Bucs in 2008.

On the call, Livingston says police prepared for a hostage situation and an officer shot the 28-year-old when he came to the door. The caller, speaking with relative calm, also said he poured gasoline inside the home "and I might just set it on fire".

Gruden works for ESPN as a football analyst and was in the "Monday Night Football" booth for the Raiders' Christmas loss at Philadelphia.

Moreover, Oakland has attempted to go back to the future with the re-hiring of former two-time coach Art Shell only to have that blow up in their face once.

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden, center, reacts after being inducted into the Buccaneers Ring of Honor during halftime of an NFL football game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Dec. 18, 2017, in Tampa, Fla.

"The owner", one source said about Davis, "has an affinity for him". But Schefter reported on Friday that Dirk Koetter would be returning as head coach for the Bucs in 2018, which would obviously mean Gruden isn't going there. I can't say I haven't taken any phone calls.

The Twins organization did not immediately respond to City Pages' request for comment, though it did later issue this statement . Getting in trouble for it "was only a matter of time", said one person familiar with Sano, whom he called "a ticking time bomb".

Tennessee fans, you might want to sit down for this. Yeah, sometimes owners. Guys want to bounce ideas off me.

If Gruden did end up back in Oakland, then he'd be given the power to transform the entire organization, including the front office and coaching staff, per the report. "I'm here to help people".

Just previous year, the Indianapolis Colts met with him.

So, it's natural to remain skeptical about Gruden leaving ESPN, but this Raiders rumor is certainly an interesting one.

Out of a total Iranian population of 80 million, some 3.2 million are jobless, according to official data. Prices on many essential products, including eggs, have increased up to 40 percent in recent days.

But Gruden continues to insist that it is nothing more than talk, as there has been talk in other years about his possible return that didn't come to pass.
