Oakland Raiders want Gruden as coach

Report Jon Gruden will replace Jack Del Rio as Raiders head coach

Gruden declined to specifically comment about the Raiders this past weekend, saying "there is no news to report".

Other teams that were expected to address their head coaching situation this week include the Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals, and Denver Broncos.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was given an extension following the 2016 after a 12-4 season that was believed to pay him at least $5 million per season over the next four seasons.

According to Jerry McDonald of the Mercury News, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes".

Del Rio informed reporters after Sunday's season-ending loss to the Chargers that owner Mark Davis has informed Del Rio that a change is being made. "I was supposed to be going to Tampa last week".

At this point, it seems a foregone conclusion that the Oakland Raiders will be hiring Jon Gruden for a second go-round heading into the 2018 season. The Raiders won just 13 games in the three seasons before he arrived. An ESPN spokesman tweeted Monday that Gruden is still scheduled to work Saturday's AFC Wild Card game in his current role as an analyst.

Vea, in the team's worst-kept secret, confirmed to The Seattle Times that he is planning to hire an agent in the coming days and declare for the National Football League draft.

Still, Gruden has reportedly already started lining up a coaching staff. Del Rio fired offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave earlier in the offseason, which would explain why quarterback Derek Carr looks like he's taken a step back as far as progression goes. He owns a 100-85 career record and won a Super Bowl in the 2002 season with the Buccaneers over the Raiders. "Whoever they bring in, they've got a great team here". "I told him how much I appreciated the opportunity he gave me; very grateful, my childhood team".

Pro Football Weekly will have more on this developing story soon. "I hope I'm a candidate".
