Sean McDonough emotional after Gruden's last ESPN game

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden's name is uncovered after being inducted into the team's Ring of Honor during the halftime of an NFL football game against the Atlanta Falcons Mon

It was a fun final game for the McDonough/Gruden combination, and whoever ESPN tabs to fill the role will nearly certainly not do the job like Gruden did, for (mostly) better and for worse.

McDonough had congratulated him on his new job with the Raiders and said his goodbyes.

The team reportedly offered Gruden an ownership stake in the team if he accepted the coaching position, but who needs an ownership stake when you can have $100 million in cold, hard cash instead?

A day after multiple sources reported that the Raiders next Tuesday plan to announce the hiring of Jon Gruden as coach, the "Monday Night Football" broadcaster called what could be his last game for ESPN before he takes the helm in Oakland.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following the end of a disappointing six-win season.

Sean McDonough is really going to miss his ESPN partner Jon Gruden on "Monday Night Football" and gave an awkward fist bump to prove it.

The Raiders touted Gruden's hire as "unfinished business" after Gruden went 38-26 in four seasons as the team's head coach from 1998-2001. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season. Gruden spent seven seasons as the Bucs coach, but was sacked following the 2008 season after a 9-7 season.

He has been with ESPN since 2009.
