Raiders to announce Gruden hiring next Tuesday

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

It looks like Jon Gruden will return to once again be the head coach of the Oakland Raiders after being out of coaching for 10 years, NFL.com reports.

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

Despite not coaching in almost a decade Gruden has routinely been a magnet for head coaching rumors. He was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the 2001 season and led them to the Super Bowl, beating the Raiders 48-21.

The 54-year-old native of Sandusky, OH has been out of the coaching ranks since the conclusion of the 2008 season. During that time, the Raiders won two AFC West titles and advanced to the conference championship once.

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. Del Rio finished 25-23 record over the last three seasons with one playoff loss. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons.

The former and future coach of the Raiders will receive a 10-year deal that will pay him about $10 million per year. Bisaccia was the special teams coordinator for all seven seasons Gruden was Tampa Bay's head coach.
