Jon Gruden on Raiders job: 'Nothing's official yet'

Report Reggie Mc Kenzie declined interview offer with Packers

Gruden spent his first four seasons as a head coach with Oakland, posting a 38-26 record from 1998-2001 and guiding the team to a pair of playoff berths, including the AFC Championship game in his last two seasons.

The team announced the move Saturday as soon as Gruden finished his final broadcast as an announcer for ESPN.

This time Gruden will replace Jack Del Rio, who went 25-23 in three seasons with the franchise.

Gruden, who reportedly has agreed to a 10-year contract worth an estimated $100 million, responded by basically saying it's not a done deal before quickly deflecting to the game at hand. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons. "We congratulate you as you head back to the sidelines with the Raiders".

The defensive line struggles with defense coordinator Ken Norton Jr., leading to a late-season firing and replacement with John Pagano. Following that snowy contest, Raiders owner Al Davis made the trade the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In 2008, the Super Bowl-winning Head Coach parted ways with the Buccaneers, and ventured into the broadcast booth. Raiders have rehired coaches before but the results were not what they were hoping.

"There's a great legacy on 'Monday Night Football, ' " McDonough said. When Jon Gruden returns to the Raiders as head coach, he will be bringing along Greg Olson as his offensive coordinator.

Last Wednesday, Gruden appeared on "Golic and Wingo" to talk about his answer the obvious question: Is he going to be the Raiders' next coach? In 2011 he was on camera for the Outback and Orange Bowl games.
