Raiders preparing to offer Jon Gruden head coach job

The Oakland Raiders have fired coach Jack Del Rio after a 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that capped a disappointing 6-10 NFL season

Asked specifically if he was a candidate, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes". "But I knew this team and this brotherhood, and I owed it to all my coaches and all my teammates".

Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was sacked Sunday after his third year when the impressive turnaround job he engineered for his hometown team collapsed with a disappointing six-win season.

Davis said he will not have any other statement until after a new coach has hired but speculation is already rampant that Jon Gruden will be back for a second stint.

Jon Gruden essentially confirmed Tuesday that the Oakland Raiders are considering hiring him as their next head coach. Del Rio then had an awkward and emotional post game press conference with the media where he addressed his dismissal.

"(Del Rio) came here and changed the attitude of the whole program, the whole atmosphere", fullback Jamize Olawale said.

But Del Rio's decision to fire coordinator Bill Musgrave after last season despite a dynamic offense and replace him with quarterbacks coach Todd Downing backfired.

Pagano went 53-45 in six seasons in Indianapolis, missing the playoffs the last three years. Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports that New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton will be a target of Gruden's should he officially be tabbed by the Raiders. But again, Gruden has not coached since 2008. We had a great first two years and this year was a big disappointment.

Pro Football Weekly will have more on this developing story soon.

Vea, the Pac-12 defensive player of the year, said he did give some consideration to sitting out the Fiesta Bowl to protect his draft stock - a growing trend for top prospects around college football. The Raiders won just 13 games in the three seasons before he arrived. This time, it feels real, as he could the Raiders' next head coach in the coming days.
