Bengals Expected To Lose DC Paul Guenther To Jon Gruden's Raiders Staff

The Raiders officially announced Gruden will be their new head coach shortly after the game.

Before and after the Titans beat the Chiefs in the wild-card game on ESPN on Saturday night, Sean McDonough congratulated Jon Gruden and said goodbye to him.

While the Raiders are widely expected to name Gruden their next head coach as early as next week, neither Gruden nor the team has confirmed those reports. He last coached the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008.

Rumor has it that the Raiders are offering Gruden a 10-year $100 million contract, the largest in league history. He was sacked by Tampa Bay following the 2008 season and has spent the past nine years as an announcer at ESPN.

"I'm actually thrilled (about it) because Bob Myers and I had a conversation this morning and I said, "You know, Bob, Gruden's got one title and I've got two, ' Kerr said, a reference to the Warriors" two National Basketball Association championships compared to Gruden's one Super Bowl win with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers".

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio as their coach last Sunday, just after completing a 6-10 season.

The Raiders, meanwhile, have gone through nine different head coaches since firing Gruden.

The Raiders' owner and managing general owner also may include an ownership stake in the offer to Gruden, also reported by Schefter.

"I've met with several people - I won't deny that", Gruden said.

A top priority for Oakland's next head coach will be re-establishing Carr, who struggled this past season.

Gruden, 54, is set to return to coaching after an absence of almost a decade. Ditka became legendary in the city thanks to leading the Bears to their only Super Bowl title following the 1985 season, but he was sacked after going 5-11 in 1992.

This would not mark the first time the Raiders brought back a coach for a second stint. Though Gruden went 38-26 with two playoff appearances in four years with the Raiders, he did not lead the team to the Super Bowl.
