ALAMEDA (KRON) — The Oakland Raiders officially announced Jon Gruden as their new head coach Tuesday.
During Tuesday’s press conference, Gruden said he’s “all in,” on this reportedly 10-year venture with the Silver and Black.
Gruden is returning for a second stint as coach of the Raiders after being traded to Tampa Bay following the 2001 season. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season. He has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season.
The team announced the move Saturday as soon as Gruden finished his final broadcast as an announcer for ESPN.
The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following the end of a disappointing six-win season.
“I’m gonna do everything I can to hire a great coaching staff and put the Raiders back on track,” Gruden said.
He also claims he hasn’t changed since
During the conference, Gruden announced three coordinators the Raiders officially hired along with him:
-Paul Guenther from the Cincinnati Bengals
-Greg Olson as Offensive Coordinator, from the LA Rams
-Rich Bisaccia as Special Teams Coordinator, from the Dallas Cowboys
