Jon Gruden Says “There’s a Good Chance” of Him Coaching The Raiders

The NFL rumor mill is heating up with who will become the next coach of the Oakland Raiders, and to this point everything points toward Jon Gruden as being the favorite candidate.

On ESPN’s Golic & Wingo, Gruden said that he had a good meeting with Raiders owner Mark Davis and “there’s a good chance” of him accepting an offer if and when he was extended one.

Currently, the ex-NFL coach is a broadcaster and personality for ESPN. He last was the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008, where he totaled a record of 57-55 and took home a Super Bowl along with two other playoff appearances.

“I’m excited about where I am in terms of studying the game and prepared to come back and coach. I just don’t want to sit here and speculate.”

Gruden refuted the report that a contract would include an ownership stake to the team. He said there was “no truth to that at all.”

Gruden coached for the Raiders for four years before his seven-year tenure with the Buccaneers.

The Raiders had a pretty disappointing season this past year, but they do have a lot of potential that Gruden could work with if he were hired.

For now, nothing is in concrete. But it looks like the Raiders are moving towards hiring Gruden.
