Raiders make it official: Jon Gruden is their new coach

5 Must See Holiday Light Displays in LA

Gruden had said earlier Saturday during a national broadcast of the AFC wild-card game between the Titans and Chiefs in Kansas City that nothing was official.

Gruden, who reportedly has agreed to a 10-year contract worth an estimated $100 million, responded by basically saying it's not a done deal before quickly deflecting to the game at hand. "Thank you, it's been a great run". Gruden was the Raiders coach from 1998 until the 2001 season.

"I'm Sean McDonough along with the coach, Jon Gruden".

"It's an emotional and bittersweet day for our "Monday Night Football" family as today we say goodbye to coach Jon Gruden after nine very distinguished years", McDonough said before the game. Gruden has already started putting together a staff with Cincinnati defensive coordinator Paul Guenther among those expected to join. That's a goal that probably motivated Gruden to return to football.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio after the team went 6-10 following a season in which they made the playoffs with a record of 12-4. He is the second-youngest head coach to win a Super Bowl in National Football League history, winning a ring at age 39 in his first season with Tampa Bay.

Then after that he will head to Oakland with the task of resurrecting Carr after a down year and getting the Raiders back to the postseason.

The move comes 20 years after he was hired by late owner Al Davis as the NFL's youngest head coach at age 34. Gibbs stepped away following the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career.
