The Oakland Raiders are going all-in on Jon Gruden, according to ESPN. According to a separate report, Gruden’s consideration for going to the Raiders has gotten so far that he’s considering adding former league MVP Rich Gannon:
According to the ESPN report, the offer for Gruden could include an ownership stake.
That would be mean the end of Jack Del Rio’s tenure, who helped rebuild the Oakland franchise before this season’s collapse amid numerous injuries and Marshawn Lynch’s uneven play.
Gruden went 95-81 over his coaching career, notching a 38-26 record over the first four years of his career in Oakland. Gruden went 57-55 during seven seasons with the Bucs, which included winning the Super Bowl during his first year and winning the NFC South three times.
Gannon, a current broadcaster, played the final six years of his 17-year career in Oakland. He finished his career 76-56, throwing for more than 28,000 yards with 180 touchdowns and 104 interceptions.
