New Raiders coach Gruden excited to finally meet reclusive RB Lynch

Gruden didn't delve much into the Raiders' upcoming move to Las Vegas or how his offense might look, but he was infinitely more engaging than Jack Del Rio ever was. It's just hard to imagine that was the primary motivation for Davis when you consider Gruden's time away from the game and most recent sample size on the sidelines. We can all go back to enjoying Monday Night Football this season! He also stated that the quarterback hasn't had continuity with his coaching core and he hopes that the new staff can help him take the next step. Paul Gunther will leave the Bengals to become the Raiders new defensive coordinator.

He wanted Gruden to be his first coaching hire in 2012.

Since 2009, Gruden has been the color analyst alongside first Mike Tirico and then Sean McDonough, but that all changed when he signed a massive 10-year contract worth a reported $100 million.

His introduction turned out to be a star-studded event with more than 100 credentialed media from across the country and dozens of former Raiders players filling the seats in the team's new performance center.

"I love the city of Oakland", Gruden said.

However, they may not see eye to eye on everything. I think he's got a huge upside. He's probably going to win. "So I'm looking forward to talking with him".

Mark Davis said Tuesday was the best day of his life.

In 11 years of total head coaching experience to date, Gruden has a regular season record of 95-81-0.

"The timing is right". Davis said. "And by far, to get Jon Gruden was the toughest". He's been offered coaching gigs throughout his broadcasting career, only to turn them all down. It should be noted that the Raiders are the last National Football League franchise that ought to be lectured to on this point, as the club has a long and proud tradition of hiring minorities as executives (such as McKenzie himself) and head coaches (Tom Flores and Art Shell each more than 30 years ago).

"I just, in my heart, feel this is the thing I want to do", he said. I am not a real deep, philosophical person. There's something brewing within the Oakland Raiders organization, and their new head coach called it "unfinished business'". "He's gotten exposed to a lot of different things". It's been a while since we consistently performed at a high level.

"I'd just like to thank Mark Davis and Mrs. Davis for this opportunity", Gruden said, referencing Mark's mother, Carole, the widow of Raiders icon Al Davis. Hair thinner than 20 years ago.

A few fans I spoke with before the presser spread the idea of removing the tarps from home games and selling those tickets.

In this case, the comments from Davis confirm that the Raiders necessarily violated the Rooney Rule because a pair of minority candidates interviewed for a job that was never actually open. Carr sustained a fractured transverse process injury against the Denver Broncos on October 1. "I haven't won a game since 2008".

In Week 7 against the Chiefs, Lynch sprinted onto the field in an apparent attempt to break up an altercation involving a fellow Oakland native - Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters - and made contact with an official, earning a one-game suspension.

And he is right. Gruden answered another when he confirmed that he, as expected, would be calling plays for the Raiders next season.
