NFL Rumors: Raiders Preparing To Make 'Strong Offer' To Jon Gruden

Gruden appeared on Wingo & Golic Wednesday and finally addressed reports that he was expected to replace former head coach Jack Del Rio, who was sacked on Sunday after the team's 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Rumors have been swirling over the past couple of days about the Oakland Raiders pursuing former head coach and current ESPN analyst Jon Gruden.

Jon Gruden gave Sean McVay his first National Football League coaching job when he hired him as an assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008.

"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. "Because I'm a competitor, and he'd say the same thing". In fact, Del Rio is one of only seven coaches in Raiders franchise history to depart with a winning record, along with Al Davis (23-16-3), John Rauch (33-8-1), John Madden (103-32-7), Tom Flores (83-53), Art Shell (56-52) and Gruden (38-26).

Gruden, talking with Trey Wingo and Mike Golic on the "Golic and Wingo" show, was careful to say that the decision will be "up to [Raiders owner] Mark Davis".

During the visit of the French Head of State, several large deals were signed, the value of which was also not publicly announced. Macron said France will continue its involvement in helping to ease the tensions over North Korea.

"I honor the owners decision", Del Rio said. "I'm here to help people", Gruden said.

Ben McAdoo of the New York Giants was the only head coach fired during the season. And it's of course notable that these are two very plugged-in reporters that happen to work for the same network Gruden does. However, it would not be shocking to see them be the first team to hire its head coach during this coaching carousel and possibly violate The Rooney Rule in the process.

"If that's the case, than Oakland will be getting a great head coach and somebody that's been instrumental in helping me personally out". Unfortunately for Del Rio, it is a problem no more.

Following a 30-10 loss to the Chargers on Sunday, the Oakland Raiders finished the 2017 season with 6-10 record, a major disappointment after going 12-4 in 2016. From the announcement that the team would be relocating to Las Vegas, to first round pick Gareon Conley's legal issues, Donald Penn's holdout, letting Bill Musgrave go and handing a powerful offense to a rookie offensive coordinator in Todd Downing, and Derek Carr's broken back, there certainly were enough distractions to overcome. "We wish them all the best". "We are kind of angry that we let it get to that, but we understand the business part of it".
