Raiders fire coach Jack Del Rio after 6-10 season

Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports that New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton will be a target of Gruden's should he officially be tabbed by the Raiders. However, with so many coaching vacancies expected, that shouldn't last long.

All signs now point to the Raiders luring Jon Gruden from ESPN, with a rumored five-year, $50 million contract and possible part ownership of the team.

According to Jerry McDonald of the Mercury News, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes".

ESPN reported Saturday night that the Oakland Raiders are preparing to woo National Football League analyst Jon Gruden back to the sidelines with a lucrative deal that could even make him a part-owner of the team. For the first time this season it seemed Del Rio had lost the team as the effort just wasn't what it was in previous weeks.

President Donald Trump who vowed to destroy North Korea if threatened, even as U.S. diplomats pushed for a diplomatic solution. Kim said in his televised New Year's address that the two Koreas should have "immediate talks" on the matter, Yonhap reported.

Gruden would be "temped to accept" such an offer from the Raiders but would hesitate to make any decisions until after the team's regular-season finale Sunday, according to ESPN, which has employed Gruden as an analyst since 2009.

The Raiders' six-win dropoff was the second-largest in franchise history from one season to the next. "Asked directly about about ESPN report re: interest in Jon Gruden".

Still, Gruden has reportedly already started lining up a coaching staff. This time, it feels real, as he could the Raiders' next head coach in the coming days. Despite winning back-to-back division titles, the Raiders traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who dominated Oakland the following year in Super Bowl XXXVII. "Whoever they bring in, they've got a great team here". "I hope I'm a candidate", regarding where things stand between him and the Raiders.
