Raiders coach Jon Gruden announces hiring of Greg Olson as offensive coordinator

12 January 2018

In 1998 Davis hired Gruden when he was 34-years-old, and in four years Gruden became one of hottest coaching commodities in the NFL.

"It's something that he and I have discussed as far as where they're at in their process and how that goes with the Raiders", McVay continued, "but if that opportunity does present itself - the respect we have for coach Olson, that's something that we'll allow him to pursue and we'll see what happens from there".

But if Tuesday was about a clean slate for everyone, nobody will be more impacted by the arrival of Gruden than Carr, and how he responds to the insanity of which his new coach refers will go a long way in determining how fast the Raiders are again winning more games than not.

McKenzie said the Raiders interviewed Bobby Johnson, Oakland's tight ends coach for the past three seasons, and Tee Martin, now the offensive coordinator at USC.

It's been more than six years since Al Davis died at age 82, with Mark ascending to managing general partner.

Gruden said the coaches face the challenge of creating a successful scheme for Carr to thrive in. I've asked for Marshawn Lynch in production meetings and have never met him. "I really haven't. I'm not a real deep philosophical person". "And the football Gods are calling me one last time".

"Everybody knows that I've been infatuated to get him here", Davis said. THE MMQB's Peter King writes the total value of Gruden's deal seems a "little bit out of whack with even the NFL's warped reality". Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders have unfinished business. Not only did the organization feel a loss but the players did to. "I think he loves Oakland. We lost going to the Super Bowl in 2002 and weren't able to execute and bring the Lombardi Trophy home, but who knows". And I want to give them two of the best years of football that I can possibly help deliver. He's just that type of coach, very inspirational.

"I think he has a character like Bill Walsh-he can be your best friend or your worst enemy", he said.

Minutes before Gruden took the stage, the room fell silent.

Gruden declined to get into specifics of his monstrous contract - playing coy - and joked (maybe?) that he has a no-trade clause in his deal this time.

"Coach Gruden's coming into a good situation", Penn told NFL Network on Monday. He hasn't coached since 2008 but he's still been apart of the NFL with a prime seat as Monday Night's Football top analyst. Tuesday was a day for "Chucky's Return", a much-anticipated sequel.

Barlow played in the National Football League for seven seasons, his final two with Gruden and the Buccaneers. But this place, this man [Davis] right here, has a lot to do with why I'm here today. We have to improve the way we meet. Expect a joint effort on decisions to add assets via free agency and the draft wherever necessary.
