Raiders to make Jon Gruden highest-paid coach in National Football League history

Raiders to make Jon Gruden highest-paid coach in National Football League history

Sources told Schefter he would receive a 10-year contract worth almost $100 million to return to coaching. Gruden was then traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Raiders will be required to comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate or otherwise face discipline from the NFL. His last game with Oakland was the infamous "Tuck Rule" game during the 2002 playoffs that helped launch the Patriots dynasty.

Gruden has worked as a color commentator for ESPN's Monday Night Football telecast since 2009, and he hasn't coached in an NFL game since 2008.

The Raiders entered this season with Super Bowl aspirations, but the team finished the year 6-10 after reaching the playoffs in 2016.

Gruden spent four seasons as coach in Oakland from 1998-2001.

Appearing on ESPN's Golic and Wingo (h/t Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com) on Wednesday, Gruden confirmed he has spoken with Raiders owner Mark Davis regarding the opening and added, "I think there's a good chance", when asked about whether he would accept the job. It is believed that he will bring in well regarded Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther to run his defense. "Minority candidates were interviewed and we will wait and see the decision they make".

Under the new deal with the Raiders, Gruden's coordinators will receive four-year contracts, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
