Jon Gruden unveils new Raiders coordinators

10 January 2018

When Jon Gruden last coached in the National Football League back in 2008, he took on the responsibility of calling plays in addition to being in charge of an entire team and staff.

The intriguing part of this pairing is the fact that Gruden hasn't coached since the 2008 season, and much has changed since he last strolled the sidelines.

Join us in this post for live updates throughout the day on the scene at the facility, notable quotes from Gruden's press conference and more from Chucky's return to Oakland.

Gruden was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before the 2002 season and at the end of his first year defeated the Raiders in Super Bowl 37.

The Oakland Raiders have turned to an old face to try to inspire their team after a disappointing season, hiring Jon Gruden for a second stint in charge.

One tourist killed, 12 injured in air balloon crash in Egypt
In 2016, 22 Chinese tourists were injured when their balloon crash landed, after which Egypt temporarily halted balloon rides. The incident was caused by strong winds that forced the balloon off its course above the city's temples and tombs.

"I've felt for six years that Jon Gruden is the person I wanted to lead this team", Davis said.

"Most of all I love to win and I'm going to do everything I can", Gruden said. What press conference ever begins with a hype video? But I still want to be very detailed in the way we play offense, I still want to be very involved in how we move the football. "I feel a lot of loyalty and I feel a lot of responsibility". I love the preparation.

Gruden has been gathering a coaching staff in advance of Tuesday's expected announcement. Gruden's coordinators will receive four-year deals, Rapoport adds.

Gruden succeeds Jack Del Rio, who was sacked following a season-ending loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that capped a disappointing 6-10 campaign for the Raiders.

Gruden and general manager Reggie McKenzie should work well together. Obviously, Derek Carr is a huge reason Gruden took the job.
