Jon Gruden's 10-year deal with Raiders to approach $100M

Steve Corkran on Twitter:

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden (L) greets Raiders running back Charlie Garner after Garner ran an 80-yard, fourth-quarter touchdown against the New York Jets at the AFC playoffs, 12 January 2002, in Oakland, California.

ESPN reported that Gruden would receive a 10-year deal that will be the longest coaching contract in NFL history and could be worth close to $100 million USA, which would make him the highest-paid coach in league history.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that a good deal of Gruden's staff is already in place, though Reggie McKenzie will remain the team's general manager. He has not coached since his seventh and final season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. He coached the Raiders for four seasons from 1998-2001.

Gruden hasn't coached in the National Football League since 2008 and has since worked as a color commentator and featured on-air personality for ESPN, where he's reportedly one of their highest paid employees.

The Raiders entered this season with Super Bowl aspirations, but the team finished the year 6-10 after reaching the playoffs in 2016.

He would replace Jack Del Rio, who was sacked after the team's regular season finale.

NFL Analyst Jon Gruden will leave his microphone behind and head back to the sidelines to coach the Oakland Raiders, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It is believed that he will bring in well regarded Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther to run his defense.
