Jon Gruden expected to become new head coach of Raiders

Morton, who is under contract with the Jets, has a close relationship with Jon Gruden, whom he worked for in 1998 as a Raiders offensive/wide receivers coach. While it hasn't happened yet, he is expected to do it fairly soon once he fulfills his ESPN obligations.

For the first time this season it seemed Del Rio had lost the team as the effort just wasn't what it was in previous weeks.

By late Sunday, after Del Rio's ouster only further fueled the Gruden-to-Oakland rumors, reports of potential coaching staff members began.

Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was sacked Sunday after his third year when the impressive turnaround job he engineered for his hometown team collapsed with a disappointing six-win season.

The Raiders improved from three to seven wins in Del Rio's first season in 2015 and to 12 wins in his second, reaching the postseason for the first time since 2002. He has seen his share of coaching changes, and said he found Del Rio's firing Sunday probably the most surprising. He told me he loved me and appreciated all that I did to kind of get this program going the right direction, but that he felt the need to change. There is no news to report, "Gruden said Saturday".

"You know what he's done in the past", Bowman said. And he's studied the quarterback position inside and out.

Representatives for the family say Ulysses Wilkerson was startled by police on the night of December 23 and he ran away. A rally is being held December 30 in Troy at 11 a.m.by Wilkerson's family across from the Troy Police station.

The Raiders' vacancy like won't be filled as abruptly as it opened.

The Chiefs and Titans are now preparing for their Wild Card-round playoff matchup that will be broadcast Saturday on ESPN. If Morton, for example, were getting the head coaching job, the Jets couldn't stop it.

The Daily News reported if Gruden does go to Oakland he might try to recruit Jets offensive coordinator John Morton to go with him and that NY will not stand in his way. Morton was also an offensive assistant for the Raiders from 2002-04. Some within the league believe it's possible that his defensive coordinator will be Paul Guenther, the widely respected defensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals. Under Guenther, Cincinnati's defense ranked second in the National Football League in points allowed in 2015 (17.4) and eighth in 2016 (19.7). Gannon is now a TV analyst for CBS and was in the booth for the Raiders' finale against the Chargers on Sunday.

Caldwell went 36-28 in four seasons with the Lions. "I can't say I haven't taken any phone calls".

Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk also noted that there is potential for both the Chiefs and Titans to file tampering complaints with the NFL if Gruden contacts potential free agents on either team prior to the game or comments on them during the game.

On Sunday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter said Gruden will be the next coach of the Raiders, a proclamation he presumably would not make without some reassurance of its accuracy from fellow ESPNer Gruden. "So I hope I made a good first impression".
