Jon Gruden worth every penny of his $100 million contract from Raiders

The Raiders are planning a news conference Tuesday to introduce Gruden as their next head coach.

Gruden's contract will be worth around $100 million over 10 years, according to Schefter.

The previous coach Jack Del Rio was sacked after the last game of the season, and Gruden is set to interview with them Monday.

The Oakland Raiders are set to bring Jon Gruden back for a second stint as coach.

Despite not coaching in almost a decade Gruden has routinely been a magnet for head coaching rumors.

But there has been mostly a run of losing seasons under nine coaches as only the Cleveland Browns had lost more games during Gruden's 16-year absence than the Raiders.

The Raiders are scheduled to have two more seasons in Oakland before moving to Las Vegas. Gruden spent four years as coach for the Raiders before being dealt to Tampa Bay, where he beat Oakland in the Super Bowl following his first season in 2002.

Gruden, now a Monday Night Football analyst, coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001, winning AFC West titles in his last two seasons.

The Buccaneers went 12-4 in his first season and finished 57-55 with three playoff appearances in Gruden's seven seasons.

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.
