Jon Gruden expected to become new head coach of Raiders

Report Jon Gruden will replace Jack Del Rio as Raiders head coach

Since being fired by the Bucs after seven seasons as their head coach, Gruden has been most famous for his work as a commentator on ESPN's "Monday Night Football", among other programs.

However, when asked about this on Tuesday, Gruden - still an analyst for ESPN - had a very amusing response. "I spoke with [owner] Mark Davis after the game and Mark let me know that he's not going to be bringing me back".

Jon Gruden coaches the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008.

It should be noted that previously, these "accidental" leaks from Coolshop turned out to be surprisingly accurate. Our minds work in a way that make the difference between "a few months" and "half a year" seem astronomical.

When asked specifically if he was a candidate, Gruden replied: "Well, I think I am being considered, yes". He was wide receivers coach with the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints prior being hired as New York's offensive coordinator last March. This year, he talked openly about a return to the sidelines and there was speculation - primarily wishful thinking from University of Tennessee fans - that he would leave ESPN to coach the Volunteers.

The Raiders will be required to comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate or otherwise face discipline from the NFL.

While the deal is not official yet, Schefter, along with Chris Mortensen, reported earlier on Sunday that the Raiders planned to aggressively pursue Gruden.

Gruden is calling his final game of the season on Saturday, when the Titans and Chiefs meet in the wild-card round.

Gruden was not anxious about his involvement in Saturday's broadcast and is willing to wait out this awkward hiring process.

"I don't want to sit here and speculate".

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.
