National Football League plans to 'look into' possible Rooney Rule violation by Raiders

National Football League plans to 'look into' possible Rooney Rule violation by Raiders

Gruden, whose appointment was announced on Wednesday, returns to the same franchise where he made his debut as an National Football League head coach 20 years ago with the Raiders reportedly offering a 10-year deal worth $100m (£74m).

Fritz Pollard Alliance counsels Cyrus Mehri and N. Jeremi Duru expressed concern that Raiders owner Mark Davis may have struck a deal with Gruden before the team interviewed any minority candidates as required by the league. Mark Davis said he had been chasing Gruden for six years and would not have made the change if Gruden had not been available. "But if there is a closed process and those minority candidates were going through the motions and had no idea there was already an agreement, that is not fair to them and it is not fair to the next guy coming up through the ranks".

Fritz Pollard Alliance chairman John Wooten sang a different tune last week when talking to ESPN. The policy requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate for a head coach, general manager and other senior personnel executive position.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden has reportedly filled two more vacancies on his coaching staff with the reported additions of defensive backs coach Derrick Ansley and running backs coach Jemal Singleton. Shell returned for a second stint with the team in 2006.

Dish customers will be able to use Google Assistant on Google Home , Android phones and iPhones to control their Dish equipment. Intelligent speakers, like Amazon's Echo and Google's Home, are "quickly becoming the core foundation of smart homes", he said.

His replacement, Jon Gruden, is a familiar face to numerous Raider faithful. The Raiders played the Eagles on Christmas Day where Gruden worked the ESPN broadcast as a color analyst.

The Raiders signed Gruden as the new head coach with a record contract: 10 years and $100 million. He coached the Raiders from 1998-2001, leading them to a AFC Divisional playoff game in 2001.

Gruden was traded to Tampa Bay in 2003 and proceeded to guide the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl championship in his first season.
