Raiders make it official: Jon Gruden is their new coach

The ESPN broadcaster agreed on a 10-year, $100 million deal with the Oakland Raiders.

That's a goal that probably motivated Gruden to return to football. "What a great way to send you off". But I know you're looking forward to getting back to coaching. "We congratulate you as you head back to the sideline with the Raiders".

Gruden responded: "Well, thank you". "Nothing's official yet, but these Chiefs fans have been on my case since we got here".

Owner Mark Davis hopes that will all change now that he has finally lured Gruden back for a second stint as the team's coach.

A team spokesman reiterated the Raiders would not comment until they hire a new coach.

North Korea launched an ICBM over Japan into the Pacific Ocean on September 14, and then again on November 29 of previous year . Earlier in the month North Korea had threatened the USA with "nuclear justice" and "thermonuclear war".

Gruden coached the Raiders between the 1998 and 2001 seasons.

"I'm actually thrilled (about it) because Bob Myers and I had a conversation this morning and I said, "You know, Bob, Gruden's got one title and I've got two, ' Kerr said, a reference to the Warriors" two National Basketball Association championships compared to Gruden's one Super Bowl win with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers". Those coaches combined for a.359 winning percentage (92-164) and two playoff appearances.

Sean McDonough is really going to miss his ESPN partner Jon Gruden on "Monday Night Football" and gave an awkward fist bump to prove it. "Welcome home Gruden! Go Raiders!"

Personally, I enjoy Gruden as an analyst, though he is sometimes comical and overzealous, and his commentary during the Steelers-Bengals game regarding Vontaze Burfict and JuJu Smith-Schuster was nothing short of idiotic. This is not the first time two brothers have been head coaches in the National Football League simultaneously.

This season Oakland missed the playoffs with a final record of 6-10, after ending a 14-year postseason drought a season ago finishing 12-4. Gruden spent seven seasons as the Bucs coach, but was sacked following the 2008 season after a 9-7 season.
