Jack Del Rio May Not Survive Disappointing Season


According to Adam Schefter, Guenther has two good options: join Gruden in Oakland as the defensive coordinator or take over for Marvin Lewis, who may be leaving his head coach position in Cincinnati. It has been nearly 20 years that Gruden was hired on January 8, 1998 to be head coach of the Raiders, for whom he coached through the 2001 season.

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.

Gruden spent four years as head coach of the Raiders from 1998 to 2001.

Gruden's own employer (ESPN) is behind the report, which makes this story seem legitimate. "And I can't say enough about Jon and what he's done and what he's been able to teach me, and kind of the way he put his arm around me and taught me this game".

It's looking more and more as if the Raiders will rehire Jon Gruden as their head coach, ESPN.com reported Monday, the morning after Jack Del Rio was sacked following Oakland's season-ending 30-10 loss to the Chargers.

The firing will add more fuel to the speculation of Jon Gruden returning to the Raiders. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others.

An ownership source said owners might not be so quick to approve the deal, because they wouldn't want to establish a precedent.

"You can line anybody up against me and I'm going to throw against them", Carr said.

With the Raiders preparing for a move to Las Vegas in 2020, it's clear the owner, Mark Davis, wants a big-time head coach in place to stoke fan interest. "I believe he could help him out tremendously and make him into the Hall of Fame type quarterback we think that young kid could be". He stuck around for three more seasons as Tampa Bay's offensive coordinator under Raheem Morris, but it was hardly a successful stint.

While getting fired and rumors of getting fired go with the territory, it's a shame that Del Rio finds himself in the middle of this. With Carr battling a back injury for much of the season, Del Rio is not entirely to blame for Oakland finishing with a losing record this season. He led the team to three playoff appearances and the Super Bowl title in his first season with the team in 2002.
