Gruden returns as Raiders' head coach

Gruden returns as Raiders' head coach

Gruden had said earlier Saturday during a national broadcast of the AFC wild-card game between the Titans and Chiefs in Kansas City that nothing was official.

The ESPN broadcaster agreed on a 10-year, $100 million deal with the Oakland Raiders. Even on Saturday afternoon, Gruden took some digs at his booth partner and the common consensus on Twitter was that the Raiders coach probably couldn't wait to leave McDonough behind and move to greener pastures.

He will be introduced by the Raiders at a media conference on Tuesday and replaces Jack Del Rio, who was sacked on December 31.

Dimitrov will face Australia's Nick Kyrgios in the semi-final after he overcame Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov 1-6 6-3 6-4. In the other semi-final Australian wild card Alex de Minaur will face America's Ryan Harrison .

"Well, thank you", Gruden said, adding: "Nothing's official yet, but these Chiefs' fans have been on my case since I got here!"

The Raiders Research Project, a repository of historical information not readily available online or from the notoriously secretive Oakland Raiders, is back in action and once again working in conjunction with Silver & Black Report.

From 1998 to 2001, Jon Gruden coached the Raiders and in four seasons. His Buccaneers beat the Raiders 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII. He has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season. "We congratulate you as you head back to the sidelines with the Raiders". From there he became more involved in commentary, and has been a member of the Monday Night Football crew since 2009 serving as a color analyst. For ESPN, Gruden was present for the 2010 Rose Bowl and 2010 BCS National Championship game for ESPN radio.
