Raiders are going all in to try and bring back Jon Gruden

Raiders are going all in to try and bring back Jon Gruden

That means that ESPN's report that stated Davis not only ready to pursue Gruden but also offer him a partial ownership stake in the team has to be far more than pure conjecture or speculation.

If Davis was staunchly behind current coach Jack Del Rio, he would've said something like, "I have no interest in hiring Jon Gruden".

A Raiders-Jon Gruden reunion may be on the horizon.

Gruden led the Bucs to the 2002 Super Bowl, defeating the Raiders a season after he was traded from Oakland to Tampa Bay following the Bucs' decision to fire Tony Dungy. Each QB was scrapped in the offseason, and Gruden turned a 34-year-old journeyman signal caller, Rich Gannon, into a franchise quarterback by 2000, but not until he lost eight games with Gannon their first year together in 1999.

Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC)
Tiemann Investment Advisors Ltd Limited Liability Company has invested 0.17% in Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:MPC). Peak6 Limited Partnership holds 0.04% of its portfolio in Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:MPC) for 132,237 shares.

If Gruden did end up back in Oakland, then he'd be given the power to transform the entire organization, including the front office and coaching staff, per the report. The season ended, however, with Gruden exploiting Gannon's weaknesses and blowing out the Raiders. Gruden is prepping for commentary, he's not game planning - the difference needs to be distinguished. "There is no news to report", Gruden told ESPN on Saturday. Yeah, sometimes owners. Guys want to bounce ideas off me. And there were the wacky rumors of Gruden going to Tennessee, which even involved a Knoxville BBQ joint apologizing for contributing to the rumors.

Gruden, who has been out of coaching since being fired after the Bucs collapsed down the stretch of the 2008 season, has been the color analyst on "Monday Night Football" broadcasts since 2009.

Oakland's top brass must be growing frustrated of Del Rio's performance with the Raiders not making the playoffs for the second time in three years under Del Rio.

Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area asked Raiders owner Mark Davis about the report. With at least another year in Oakland and a future that consists of playing in a still-undetermined location for 2019 and Las Vegas as soon as 2020, the Raiders need sizzle and excitement - far more than what bringing Marshawn Lynch out of retirement did in 2017. The $10 million would instantly make Gruden one of the highest-paid coaches in the league. His agent always uses the threat of going back to coaching as leverage with upping his deal at ESPN.
