Jon Gruden's 10-year deal with Raiders to approach $100M

Jon Gruden's 10-year deal with Raiders to approach $100M

Gruden, who coached Oakland from 1998 to 2001 and has been working as an ESPN analyst, is returning to the Raiders to replace Jack Del Rio, who was sacked after the regular-season finale on Sunday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says Gruden's return will be made official in a Tuesday press conference, and that he's be handed the coaching keys to the franchise for the next decade.

Owner Mark Davis is giving Gruden a 10-year contract worth $100 million, which would be both the longest and most expensive contract for a coach in National Football League history, according to multiple reports. He was sacked by the Buccaneers following the 2008 season and has served as a color coordinator for ESPN's "Monday Night Football" ever since.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Gruden's co-ordinators are already in place.

Gruden's salary is believed to be in the range of $10 million per year, twice what Del Rio was making and a figure that would make him the NFL's highest-paid coach. During that time, the Raiders won two AFC West titles and advanced to the conference championship once.

We also contemplated what Gruden's relationship might be with quarterback Derek Carr and current general manager Reggie McKenzie, and whether Al ever regretted trading Gruden.
