Colts, Raiders fire coaches Chuck Pagano, Jack Del Rio

"My understanding is they're interviewing candidates this week", Gruden told the Bay Area News Group, "and they're going to let everybody know sometime early next week or whenever they make their decision". For him to acknowledge he wants the job is very telling. But, it's a results business. In reality, they would not have fired Del Rio if they weren't confident they could land Gruden. Between having a seriously improved record, a lot of young talent and Del Rio's hard-nosed personality the team looked as though it were being revived. His tenure with Oakland was a success, but failure to correct a struggling offense this year proved fatal.

In 11 seasons as an National Football League head coach, Gruden has a 95-81 record in the regular season and 5-4 record in the postseason.

If the Raiders do offer Gruden an ownership stake, there is a huge catch - it must be approved by other National Football League owners and there is a good reason to think they would be reluctant to do so.

Oakland has been circling Gruden like a hawk since Saturday when NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Raiders would fire Del Rio if pursuing Gruden was a credible option, and that the Raiders would offer the former Raiders and Buccaneers coach upwards of $10 million annually and an ownership stake in the team.

In hindsight, we should have known that this was going to be a tough year for the Raiders. The longtime color analyst will be a huge draw for Oakland as the team transitions to Las Vegas.

On Monday, the Detroit Lions axed coach Jim Caldwell, who finished the season with a 9-7 record but missed the playoffs for the second time in three years. Many changes are expected over the next few weeks, and Raider Nation can't wait to see how it all unfolds.
