Jon Gruden confirms he will call plays for Raiders

Oakland Raiders new head coach Jon Gruden speaks during a news conference at Oakland Raiders headquarters on January 9, 2018 in Alameda, California. I've paid very close attention to it. "I think over the last six or seven years we have talked about the Raiders. I never thought I'd be back", Gruden said.

The Raiders are clearly all in on Gruden. They have won 50 games since firing Gruden after the 2008 season.

"For my career to end on that night in New England, it still ticks me off".

"I kind of look at it like Steve Kerr when he came to the Warriors", Penn said.

"I have a lot to prove". And most of all, I love to win and I'm going to do everything I can. He has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season. Overall, he is 95-81 in 11 regular seasons and 100-85 including the postseason. The Raiders are committed to Carr being the long-term answer under center as the franchise quarterback after inking him to a five-year, $125 million contract extension last June.

"All I know is this year I'm coaching in Oakland", he said. In 2016, Penn was named the recipient of the Craig Long Award which is presented to the Raiders player who best exemplifies professionalism with the media.

The 26-year-old has been able to throw more than 20 touchdowns and 3,250 yards in each of his first four years under center. It was going to take the right opportunity and the right time for that to happen. It should be quite the scene today for Gruden's return. "No guarantees, no promises, but I want to win".

Just as the press conference was wrapping up, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that they may be looking to add to their front office. "I worked for Al Davis in 1998". I love the preparation.
