Jon Gruden on Raiders job: 'Nothing's official yet'

Confirming the worst-kept secret in sports, the Oakland Raiders announced Saturday that Jon Gruden will be their next head coach.

The Mercury News said the 54-year-old Gruden had signed the richest coaching contract in the National Football League, with the agreement worth $100 million over 10 years.

The ESPN broadcaster agreed on a 10-year, $100 million deal with the Oakland Raiders.

After attending the University of Dayton, Gruden got his first start in coaching in 1986 as a graduate assistant at the University of Tennessee Knoxville.

The Raiders Research Project, a repository of historical information not readily available online or from the notoriously secretive Oakland Raiders, is back in action and once again working in conjunction with Silver & Black Report.

He handed it to Tierney, who easily converted the gift into his ninth goal of the season to tie the score. Kadri scored on a power play midway through the second for his 14th goal.

Gruden's ESPN broadcast partner Sean McDonough congratulated him during the broadcast but Gruden said "Nothing's official".

Last Wednesday, Gruden appeared on "Golic and Wingo" to talk about his future.to answer the obvious question: Is he going to be the Raiders' next coach? He served in that role from 1998 through 2001, before being traded to Tampa Bay.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following the end of a disappointing six-win season.

He last coached with the Buccaneers, with whom he won Super Bowl XXXVII - beating the Raiders 48-21. From there he became more involved in commentary, and has been a member of the Monday Night Football crew since 2009 serving as a color analyst. Could he be the man to replace Gruden on ESPN?
