According to Raiders report Steve Corkran, Jon Gruden is set to become the next head coach of the Raiders.

The date of the official announcement was first reported by RaidersSnakepit.com. He coached Oakland from 1998 to 2001 and has been working as an ESPN analyst as of late.

He's a really good guy and has a lot of space for improvement, to become one of the best players in the world. As such, an formal offer to Hazard is not expected before the end of the season.

Oakland had previously traded Gruden to Tampa Bay for four draft picks after Gruden spent four seasons with the team.

ESPN's Adam Schefter later confirmed the report. During that time, the Raiders won two AFC West titles and advanced to the conference championship once. 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. He has a 95-81 career record. Both the league and the Fritz Pollard Alliance, the diversity group that works closely with the NFL on its minority hiring practices, say the Raiders complied with the rule.

Per ESPN's Jim Trotter, the Raiders complied by interviewing tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and "an unidentified college coach" earlier this week. "We'll see what decision they make". Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year.
