Raiders to introduce Jon Gruden as new head coach Tuesday — Reports

Today's Gruden Grinder goes to JON GRUDEN'S AGENT- who's reportedly landing a $100 MILLION contract for Chucky to coach the Raiders

"Be honest with your fans". Be honest with the public. "Don't insult our collective intelligence", she said in a telephone conversation with USA TODAY Sports on Thursday.

On Friday, Kerr, a fellow Oakland coach, was a guest on "The Damon Bruce Show" on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco. "In other words, be honest, forthright and direct". Gruden previously coached the Raiders from 1998-2001, compiling a 40-28 record and two postseason appearances. Gibbs stepped away after the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career. But I've seen Barry Melrose do this.

Under the new deal with the Raiders, Gruden's coordinators will receive four-year contracts, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. I took advantage of the opportunity.

Though the Raiders appeared to single-mindedly pursue Gruden as Del Rio's replacement, the N.F.L. spokesman Joe Lockhart said the team had satisfied the "Rooney rule" by interviewing minority candidates for the job. Remember, this is the same league that contends that Colin Kaepernick isn't good enough to be on an NFL roster because he wasn't playing at an elite level on a very bad football team. In fact, Jim Caldwell (most recently of Detroit) has been fired twice in the last decade with a winning percentage - 55.4 percent - superior to Gruden.

It was exactly what a team that is trying to sell seats in a new stadium that's not even built yet didn't need to see happen. Late owner Al Davis hired Art Shell in 2006, 11 years after firing him the first time.

In 2012, the Raiders made Reggie McKenzie one of the few black general managers. The roar of the crowd is deafening. "They had a lot of adversity and fought for four quarters", Gruden said.

In 2003, former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue fined then-Lions president Matt Millen $200,000 for failing to interview a minority candidate before hiring Steve Mariucci as coach.

Owners were told that further violations would draw a $500,000 fine.

But, c'mon. These guys are billionaires, so $500,000 is chump change.

The news conference was first reported by the Raiders Snake Pit website.

It's expected that owners will discuss intensifying the penalty in the offseason to include the loss of a significant draft pick. Anything short of that would be a disappointment.

And only two clubs have black quarterback coaches. That's a bio of a coach who gets a pink slip, not $100 million. No position in sports is more important than quarterback and Gruden inherits some talent at that position. Washington and Oakland are not scheduled to play again until 2021.

He spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of repercussions. How crazy is this? But no, I haven't heard anything. Derek Carr also landed a huge contract extension that was, at the time, the richest in NFL history. We'll never know, and that's a shame. Is UCF better than Georgia or Alabama?

Owners can eliminate that dilemma by committing to truly making their organizations places of equal opportunity.
