Former Raiders Executive Thinks Jon Gruden Will Be A "Revelation"

Gruden last coached in 2008, with the Buccaneers.

The man just signed for $100 million dollars guaranteed.

The Raiders have Derek Carr, not a Billy Bob, at quarterback, and Ditka said he expects Gruden to invigorate the Raiders' offense and elevate the entire team. "I never thought I'd be back", Gruden said.

The 54-year-old also compared his tenures with the Raiders and Buccaneers as teaching lessons for this unforeseen return to the head-coaching ranks.

Oakland Raiders new head coach Jon Gruden waves as he is introduced during an NFL football news conference in Alameda, Calif. Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018. Which is exactly why the price to get Gruden back doesn't matter. "This is something I feel strongly about".

Like most things sports-related, you can bet on it. Honestly, I'm not aware of any protests, I'm not really aware of that subject at all. I'm ready to roll, I'm just ready to go.

The challenge will be far greater than the coaches who precede him. Now, it's a reality, and Gruden brought the same passion millions saw in his commentary Monday nights. Now that the tuck rule has been repealed, perhaps Gruden will get another shot at the Patriots in the upcoming years. Not only did the organization feel a loss but the players did to.

Davis for his part said, "I think one of the biggest differences in teams is the front office and coaching staffs ..." I love the players that play it. "But here I am and I'm ready to get to work", Gruden said.

"I just want to say there's really four major reasons why I'm here coaching today, " Gruden said. I'm going to do everything I can. Many, inside and outside the Rams, refer to McVay as "Mini Gruden". Given the excitement once the reports began to come out in Week 17 and the buzz leading up to Tuesday's press conference, the initial impact has been pretty much what Davis was looking for. Gruden noted that he plans to call plays. I love the Raiders and most of all I love to win.

As Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have shown, a quarterback and head coach doesn't necessarily have to be the best of friends to be successful. He spent the past nine seasons in a broadcast booth as a color commentator for ESPN's Monday Night Football.

The top question of the day was "how do you turn this team around?"

Critics wonder how will time away from the sidelines affect Gruden's ability to handle today's National Football League locker room and the game's progression. I think you have to be careful what you read because it's not as always true and it's not always positive. "When I gather some information, maybe we can cover that subject later". We've got to improve the ways we practice. And we have to improve the way we play. Expect a joint effort on decisions to add assets via free agency and the draft wherever necessary. "And people in The Black Hole, if you're out there listening, I can't wait to see you guys".
