Tracking Jon Gruden’s coaching staff

The Oakland Raiders will sign Jon Gruden to the longest coaching deal in National Football League history - a 10-year contract likely approaching $100 million - when it is made official Tuesday, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Friday.

The Raiders fired Del Rio following a disappointing six-win season and talk immediately turned to Gruden, who has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay following the 2008 season.

The Oakland Raiders are making a long-term commitment to Jon Gruden.

Current Los Angeles Rams quarterback coach Greg Olson will be Oakland's offensive coordinator, while former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther will serve in the same capacity under Gruden.

ESPN's Adam Schefter later confirmed the report. Gruden was then traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Oakland Raiders have apparently completed their interview process and decided on their next head coach, and you will never guess who landed the job.

Gruden posted a 38-26 record with Oakland from 1998-2001, guiding the team to a pair of playoff berths and the AFC Championship game in his last two seasons.

Steve Corkran of RaidersSnakePit.com first reported the news. Gruden holds an all-time mark of 95-81 over 11 seasons with the Raiders and the Bucs and is 5-4 in the playoffs. "We'll see what decision they make".

This would not mark the first time the Raiders brought back a coach for a second stint.
