Raiders to announce Gruden hiring next Tuesday

Gruden's new Raiders deal is for 10 years and $100 million, according to ESPN.

The Oakland Raiders never really recovered from the decision to trade Jon Gruden to Tampa Bay 16 years ago.

Despite not coaching in almost a decade Gruden has routinely been a magnet for head coaching rumors.

His final game with Oakland was among the most controversial losses in National Football League history, when the Raiders lost to the New England Patriots on the infamous Tom Brady "Tuck Rule" non-fumble call.

Kim said in a broadcast New Year's address Sunday that the entire U.S.is now in range of North Korea's arsenal. But, he said: "The Olympic Games are about dialogue".

Gruden, now a Monday Night Football analyst, coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001, winning AFC West titles in his last two seasons. He coached Oakland from 1998 to 2001 and has been working as an ESPN analyst as of late. Gruden spent four years as coach for the Raiders before being dealt to Tampa Bay, where he beat Oakland in the Super Bowl following his first season in 2002. Del Rio finished 25-23 record over the last three seasons with one playoff loss.

Gruden told ESPN earlier this week that he had a good talk with Raiders owner Mark Davis about returning to the organization and believed there was a "good chance" it would happen. 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. Gruden has already started putting together a staff with Cincinnati defensive co-ordinator Paul Guenther among those expected to join.

Ian Rapoport with NFL.com reports that Gruden will be introduced at a Tuesday press conference.
