Report Raiders Mark Davis'plays coy when asked about Jon Gruden

Jon Gruden said Wednesday there's a "good chance" he'd become the Oakland Raiders' new head coach if team owner Mark Davis offered him the position.

Del Rio went 25-24 in his three seasons with the Raiders.

The Oakland Raiders fired Jack Del Rio as coach Sunday after the team's season-ending 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, The Oakland Tribune reported.

Oakland traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002 after he had compiled a 38-26 record and earned two playoff appearances across four years with the team. "Because I'm a competitor, and he'd say the same thing". The Raiders job has appeal for Gruden beyond simply returning to coach. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others.

"I understood where they were coming from", Olsen said of the Vikings' concerns.

But I don't blame him at all. "What has never happened to me and will never happen is to be suspended for match-fixing", he added. Maybe, sometimes, I think that someone forgets what's said in the past, which is his behaviour.

One ownership source told ESPN that the owners "might not be so quick to approve the deal" because they wouldn't want to set a precedent. "I believe he would really have a strong interest in going in working with Derek Carr and getting Derek Carr to the next level". With a move to Las Vegas on tap, it makes sense to hire a big-name coach, too. "I'm here to help people".

But Del Rios decision to fire coordinator Bill Musgrave after last season despite a dynamic offense and replace him with quarterbacks coach Todd Downing backfired.

Asked specifically if he was a candidate, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes". "Whoever they bring in, they've got a great team here".

However it is clear that Gruden was the Raiders choice from the start after his fired Jack Del Rio and will eat a sizeable contract of $20 million.

One insider said the National Football League owners may not be quick to give their approval of such a deal, because of not wanting to establish a precedent. The New York Daily News reported interest by Gruden in current Jets offensive coordinator John Morton, who previously worked as a receivers coach in New Orleans (2015-16) and San Francisco (2011-14). After a debut season of 7-9, Del Rio followed that with a 12-4 mark and an AFC wild-card berth. Will Gruden and Carr lead the Silver and Black back to the Super Bowl? "As a player, we didnt play up to our expectations, and he had to pay the price". Were kind of angry we let it get to that.
