Raiders are going all in to try and bring back Jon Gruden

ESPN broadcaster and former head coach Jon Gruden could be pursued by the Oakland Raiders to get back into coaching

The Oakland Raiders are reportedly set to see if they can lure Jon Gruden back to the fold to replace Jack Del Rio, who is said to be potentially on his way out.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen first reported Saturday evening that the Raiders could have interest in bringing Gruden back into the fold. Gruden was Oakland's head coach from 1998 through 2001 and led the team to a 40-28 record before being traded to the Buccaneers prior to the 2002 season. Rapoport would add that Davis and the Raiders have tried to bring Gruden back before, albeit unsuccessfully. "Gruden's contract even could be backloaded to pay him more in the Nevada years and lessen his tax burden during the Oakland ones".

ESPN, Gruden's current employer, reports that the Raiders are preparing to make a run at Gruden.

Under Del Rio, the Raiders went 7-9, 12-4 and then slumped to 6-10. This team needs a shot in the arm in a big way, especially since it will soon be leaving Northern California for Las Vegas.

I take a lot of phone calls from coaches, some others ... yeah, sometimes owners.

An ownership source said owners might not be so quick to approve the deal, because they wouldn't want to establish a precedent. The franchise has held off endorsing Del Rio as its coach next season until they know about Gruden's plans.

Gannon never has coached; he went straight to broadcasting upon his retirement.

Oakland's top brass must be growing frustrated of Del Rio's performance with the Raiders not making the playoffs for the second time in three years under Del Rio. "Im here to help people".
