Oakland Raiders officially announce Jon Gruden hired as head coach

Former Raiders director of college scouting Jon Kingdon joined Dennis O'Donnell on Gameday to discuss the hiring of Jon Gruden.

Gruden is set to sign a 10 year contract worth $100 million.

"I told him, I said, 'Coach, you're about to walk into a room full of hungry dogs that are hungry, mad and upset, '" said Penn, who played on Gruden's offensive line in Tampa from 2006 to 2008.

Hopes are high for Gruden who lead the Raiders to the playoffs twice when he coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001.

Frost will clear, and most places will have a bright start with sunshine. "Highest temperatures 3 to 7 degrees". Lowest temperatures will range from zero near east and south coasts to -5° degrees well inland.

"Gruden is a quarterback genius and he knows how to groom a quarterback". Me knowing coach Gruden, his mentality, and his excitement and energy he's going to bring, I don't think there's any coach in the National Football League that brings that kind of excitement.

"If that were to happen, we're very happy for him and everything he's done for us", Goff said of Olson's expected departure to Oakland, where he would be reunited with Derek Carr.

"I was talking to a couple people and when I talk to him I'll be interested to see, will he run the same offense that he was running when I got a chance to work with him in Tampa or will he now implement some of the different things that he's had a chance to kind of continue to get exposure to over the last handful of years", McVay said.

As the Oakland Raiders head into the offseason, they have a number of roster decisions to make.

Gruden's return to coaching ends his nine-year stint with ESPN.

"Gruden has been on top of it and he interviews the quarterbacks all the time and keeps in touch with the game so much".

"I was a big Packers fan and I knew him growing up as an assistant coach for the Packers".

Other teams have also done it, with one of the most recent notable coaching hires being Joe Gibbs in Washington. "He's a guy that I've always had a lot of respect for", McVay said. Oakland won 12 games in 2016 to earn Del Rio a four-year extension but the team fell flat this season.
