OAKLAND (KRON) — The Oakland Raiders will offer Jon Gruden the head coaching job after the firing of Jack Del Rio on Sunday, according to a report.

ESPN is quoting league sources that the Raiders will also include ownership in the team.

Now that the Raiders disappointing season is behind them, bringing in Gruden would be quite the move because he was traded away in 2001.

Gruden is currently an analyst at ESPN.
