Jon Gruden admits he's a Raiders coaching candidate, reportedly could get $10M/year

Jon Gruden is expected to become the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Gruden's candidacy was first reported by ESPN, and he didn't confirm or deny it in reports Saturday night. In the meantime, he's still planning to call this week's AFC Wild Card matchup between the Titans and Chiefs - a team he'll face twice each season when he does take over in Oakland.

Jon Gruden's name surfaces each year after Black Monday but since being fired by the Buccaneers after the 2008 season, Gruden has sat cozily in the Monday Night Football booth amid all the rumours.

Gruden said Tuesday he understood the Raiders were going through the process of interviewing candidates but did not confirm he was on that list.

Sources have said Gruden has made calls to coaches around the National Football League in an attempt to put together his staff, although he has done the same in prior years but never followed through with an of the different opportunities that were presented to him.

According to the guys at FootballScoop.com, the ownership stake might not actually happen.

"You can line anybody up against me and I'm going to throw against them", Carr said. "I'm here to help people".

Still, Gruden has reportedly already started lining up a coaching staff. The offer, according to Mortensen, could include ownership stake and a backloaded contract that would allow Gruden to make the bulk of his money when the team moves to Las Vegas in order to avoid state tax.

"If that's the case, than Oakland will be getting a great head coach and somebody that's been instrumental in helping me personally out".

The Raiders concluded Del Rio's three-year tenure with the team - and completed a disappointing 6-10 season - with their 30-10 loss to the Chargers.

The Raiders improved from three to seven wins in Del Rio's first season in 2015 and to 12 wins in his second, reaching the postseason for the first time since 2002.

Expectations were high coming into this season with Carr and most of the key offensive pieces back, along with the addition of running back Marshawn Lynch and tight end Jared Cook.

Gruden is also, interestingly, being linked to the Bucs should they have an opening at head coach, which is certainly a possibility. We're kind of angry that we let it get to that and we're upset at ourselves.
