Raiders to make Jon Gruden highest-paid coach in National Football League history

Raiders to make Jon Gruden highest-paid coach in National Football League history

It seems to be all but a foregone conclusion that Jon Gruden will return to the Oakland Raiders as head coach, replacing the recently fired Jack Del Rio.

Gruden's new Raiders deal is for 10 years and $100 million, according to ESPN.

Gruden will replace former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, who was sacked Sunday after a disappointing six-win season.

Gruden has built a strong reputation as a brash head coach known to get on his quarterbacks quite roughly.

Insane fees won't stop - Puyol on Liverpool's Van Dijk raid
The Netherlands global completed a £75million move to Liverpool from Southampton on Wednesday and became the most expensive defender of all time in the process.

The Raiders are scheduled to have two more seasons in Oakland before moving to Las Vegas.

Gruden last coached in the National Football League in 2008 with the Buccaneers, whom he led to a Super Bowl title in 2002. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year. 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. ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders. Carolina Panthers coordinator Greg Olson is expected to be Gruden's offensive coordinator and Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is a top candidate for Oakland's defensive coordinator position.

The former and future coach of the Raiders will receive a 10-year deal that will pay him about $10 million per year.

Gruden has been lining up potential members of his coaching staff. He coached the Raiders for four seasons from 1998-2001.
