The 54-year-old Gruden spent four seasons as Oakland's head coach from 1998 through 2001 before getting traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has not coached since his seventh and final season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. After leading the Raiders to 8-8 records his first two years, Gruden helped the team reach the AFC title game following the 2000 season and got Oakland back into the playoffs the following season. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons. It is believed that he will bring in well regarded Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther to run his defense. Both the league and the Fritz Pollard Alliance, the diversity group that works closely with the NFL on its minority hiring practices, say the Raiders complied with the rule.
Gruden, who was hired by ESPN in 2009, reportedly already has made some key hires to his coaching staff.
