Raiders to name Gruden coach on Tuesday”

The Oakland Raiders seem set to make ESPN NFL analyst Jon Gruden a lucrative offer to become the next head coach of the franchise.

Gruden is said to have agreed to a 10-year deal worth more than $100 million with the team he coached from 1998-2001.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio as their coach last Sunday, just after completing a 6-10 season. 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.

The last time Gruden coached the Raiders was January 19, 2002 against the New England Patriots. He was sacked by the Buccaneers following the 2008 season and has been in the broadcast booth since. Gruden holds an all-time mark of 95-81 over 11 seasons with the Raiders and the Bucs and is 5-4 in the playoffs.

According to Mike Jones of USA Today, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said "the league believes the Raiders have complied with the Rooney Rule", although he couldn't say when interviews with minority candidates took place.

Gruden, who was hired by ESPN in 2009, reportedly already has made some key hires to his coaching staff.
