Raiders concerned about how Derek Carr will get along with Jon Gruden

  • Jon Gruden whose final game as coach of the Raiders was the AFC divisional playoff game in 2002 will reportedly be introduced as Oakland's new coach on Tuesday

It looks like Jon Gruden will return to once again be the head coach of the Oakland Raiders after being out of coaching for 10 years, NFL.com reports.

Despite rumors heavily pointing toward Jon Gruden becoming the Oakland Raiders' next head coach, an National Football League spokesman said Friday that the organization hasn't violated the Rooney Rule. He was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the 2001 season and led them to the Super Bowl, beating the Raiders 48-21.

He amassed a 57-55 record in seven seasons as Tampa Bay's coach. 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.

The Raiders will still be in Oakland for the upcoming season before their eventual move to Las Vegas. Gruden has already started putting together a staff with Cincinnati defensive co-ordinator Paul Guenther among those expected to join. 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.

ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders.

The NFL on Friday said the Raiders have complied with the Rooney Rule in their coaching search. "I know they've gone through their process of interviewing candidates and until they're done I won't know". Late owner Al Davis hired Art Shell in 2006, 11 years after firing him the first time.
