Oakland Raiders set to sign Jon Gruden to landmark deal

Mark Davis shoves all his chips in with a $100-million deal for Gruden

Gruden's new Raiders deal is for 10 years and $100 million, according to ESPN.

He would replace Jack Del Rio, who was sacked after the team's regular season finale. He was sacked by the Buccaneers following the 2008 season and has served as a color coordinator for ESPN's "Monday Night Football" ever since.

Steve Corkran of the Raiders Snake Pit was first with the news of Gruden's return.

Current Los Angeles Rams quarterback coach Greg Olson will be Oakland's offensive coordinator, while former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther will serve in the same capacity under Gruden.

Oakland's press conference will come after Gruden makes his final appearance for ESPN on Saturday when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Tennessee Titans.

Anti-triple talaq bill in RS tomorrow
Most parties are against the provision for jailing offenders - they say they don't want a civil matter to be criminalised. It would be tough for the government in the Upper House to pass the bill in its present form as BJP is in minority here.

Gruden last coached in the National Football League in 2008 with the Buccaneers, whom he led to a Super Bowl title in 2002. After leading the Raiders to 8-8 records his first two years, Gruden helped the team reach the AFC title game following the 2000 season and got Oakland back into the playoffs the following season.

Gruden coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001, compiling a 38-26 record.

Oakland had previously traded Gruden to Tampa Bay for four draft picks after Gruden spent four seasons with the team. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons.

This would not mark the first time the Raiders brought back a coach for a second stint.
