When Harbaugh was sacked by the 49ers following the 2014 season, Morton moved to the Saints. The New York Daily News reported interest by Gruden in current Jets offensive coordinator John Morton, who previously worked as a receivers coach in New Orleans (2015-16) and San Francisco (2011-14). "Whoever comes in here has a chance to take that nucleus and go to special places, and I'll be pulling for them".

The Raiders' six-win dropoff was the second-largest in franchise history from one season to the next. Jack Del Rio announced his own firing just moments after the Raiders lost their final game of 2017 to finish at 6-10, and it seems clear owner Mark Davis is hell bent on getting Gruden back. This time, it feels real, as he could the Raiders' next head coach in the coming days.

Still, Gruden has reportedly already started lining up a coaching staff. He was an Offensive Assistant under Bill Callahan with the Raiders from 2002 through 2004.

Gruden has also been linked to Cincinnati's Paul Guenther, the Bengals' defensive coordinator since 2014.

So, is Gruden the next man up for the Raiders?

Of course, Gruden is famous for being traded by Oakland to Tampa Bay following the Raiders' loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional round following the 2001 season. In his first season in Tampa, Gruden got his revenge as he led the Bucs to a 12-4 regular season and crushed the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII, 48-21.

"From what I've heard he's a good coach", Nelson said. What have they got?

The Raiders had major drops in scoring (26 to 18.8), yards per game (373.3 to 324.1) and committed twice as many turnovers (14 to 28) this season as Carr took a major step back in his development after signing a $125 million, five-year extension in the offseason.

"Though I did run into him in the elevator at the hotel in Philadelphia", kicker Giorgio Tavecchio said. "I hope I'm a candidate".
