Jon Gruden already placing more onus on Derek Carr

Fritz Pollard Alliance Wants NFL to Probe Raiders For Potential Rooney Rule ViolationMore

Davis said Tuesday at the news conference introducing Gruden as the team's new coach that he had been trying to make the move for six years and finally believed it would happen after a meeting in Philadelphia on Christmas Eve, the day before Gruden worked a game between the Raiders and Eagles on ESPN. Those candidates were Oakland tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and Southern California offensive coordinator Tee Martin.

It would be an embarrassing moment for the Raiders if they did indeed violate the Rooney Rule.

The Raiders were in a no-win spot. Ansley would work on the coaching staff of Gruden, the former Super Bowl XXXVII champion returning to the sidelines from the ESPN broadcast booth.

"We're going to ask a lot more from Derek Carr at the line of scrimmage", Gruden said". Gruden received a massive financial commitment from the Raiders, receiving a 10-year, $100 million deal. There was no way for the Raiders to go about hiring Gruden and also satisfy the Rooney Rule to the spirit for which it was intended.

That has led to a longer discussion about the Rooney Rule.

"As soon as we learned of the reports, we formally requested that the National Football League thoroughly investigate the matter to conclusively determine whether the Rooney Rule was violated - and if it was violated, to impose an appropriate punishment", the Fritz Pollard Alliance statement read, in part. The Raiders will probably pay a price for it.
