Jon Gruden To Return As Next Raiders Head Coach


Jon Gruden will be the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders.  The 54-year-old current ESPN analyst will return to coaching after a ten-year layoff.  Gruden previously spent four seasons as the coach of the Raiders between 1998 and 2001, compiling a 38-and-26 record.  He then was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for several draft picks and replaced head coach Tony Dungy, who had been fired.  

Gruden led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl Championship in 2002 and was with the team until 2008 before entering broadcasting.  A press conference by the Oakland Raiders has been scheduled for Tuesday.
