Raiders announce Jon Gruden as new head coach

5 Must See Holiday Light Displays in LA

5 Must See Holiday Light Displays in LA

In leading off the telecast of Saturday afternoon's wild-card game between the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs, ESPN play-by-play announcer Sean McDonough wasted no time revealing one of the worst-kept secrets in sports.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following a 6-10 season as rumors team owner Mark Davis had targeted Gruden to replace Del Rio. He was Philadelphia's quarterbacks coach when the Eagles played in the Super Bowl against New England in the 2004 season.

The Raiders have complied with the "Rooney Rule" and interviewed minority candidates for the job, according to National Football League spokesman Joe Lockhart.

Marcus Mariota throws touchdown to himself against Chiefs
Mariota finished with more than 200 passing yards and had two touchdowns in Tennessee's 22-21 win over Kansas City. Somehow, Mariota threw a pass, had it tipped, and caught it for a touchdown.

We saw this same strategy being employed when the Raiders inked Derek Carr to his then-record contract (before Matthew Stafford signed his).

He last coached for the Silver & Black when the Raiders lost to the New England Patriots in the infamous "Tuck Rule Game", and was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shortly after.

Sure, Gruden. Whatever you say.

Stick, Bison win 6th title
Each championship game was played in Frisco except for James Madison's first title, won in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Marshall then paraded through a stack off defenders to slip into the end zone and narrow the deficit to 17-13.

Gruden coached the Raiders between the 1998 and 2001 seasons. He took over as general manager in Seattle in 1989 before going back to coaching with the Seahawks in 1992. He was sacked by Tampa Bay following the 2008 season and has spent the past nine years as an announcer at ESPN.

This time it is really happening, and Raiders fans should be excited. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons. The team went 30-34 in his four seasons, making the playoffs twice and winning one game before retiring again.

The Raiders haven't yet confirmed Gruden's hiring, though an official release shouldn't come too far after the conclusion of Saturday's game once Gruden puts pen to paper. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year.
