Word around the league is that Jon Gruden is in line to rejoin the Raiders

• Jon Gruden has been out of the NFL since his abrupt firing by the Buccaneers in 2008, when inside sources said the players turned against his hard coaching style. Known for his admiration of John Madden, many executives around the league believed Gruden was destined for a prime-time role in the broadcast booth and would seek to spend the rest of his career there, capitalizing on the naming rights involved with the video gaming world that reportedly have generated more than $100 million for Madden. While spending the past three seasons working for ESPN on Monday nights, Gruden also has not stopped spending extensive time grilling and getting to know the next batch of quarterbacks to come through the NFL in his annual "Gruden's QB Camp" series, logic would indicate, in preparation for the next coaching opportunity. The latest scuttlebutt in the league has Gruden, on the brink of turning age 50, in line to rejoin the Raiders' organization in a prominent role. The franchise’s downturn can be traced directly back to his departure a decade ago, he has a relationship with GM Reggie McKenzie from their time together in Green Bay and he has an even better understanding of the infrastructure in Oakland and the Al Davis brand of football than anyone in football. With more autonomy to run the organization how he sees fit, adapting a model that Davis taught him, Gruden is very well-positioned to resurrect a faitering franchise that went 0-for-November and has yet to win a game since owner Mark Davis put everyone on notice and said he was not pleased with the direction of the team.

Wouldn't surprise me at all. I would take Gruden in a second.

Barkley will do enough in Grudens WCO to go 8-8 year-in and year-out.


Perfect.

Perfect.
I don't think Gruden is running WCO. While I'm not sold on the guy, if he's been studying up big time on Chip Kelly's offense, it would be a very interesting offense for Geno to operate in.

If he plans on going there, then my guess is that the Raiders will be in LA soon.

I heard he was pushing to get Al to hire him in 2009- Word is he has a good relationship with Marc Davis the new owner- Kinda makes sense- Gruden loves those older vets- Palmer would be a perfect player for a Gruden WCO

Not so sure.

IMO he would be a great hire because he would find the right QB.

Again... this is ignoring the fact that Gruden has been intently studying Chip Kelly's offense in Oregon. I am pretty sure Gruden is going to have a lot more spread than he usually runs.

I think the Gruden retread thing is being overblown.

He will draft a QB as soon as he is hired.
