There’s been a lot of breaking news in the NFL in the past couple of days. It comes as no surprise and now, Jon Gruden is added to the mix again as he confirmed that he’s in the running for the head coach position with the Raiders.
You remember when you’ve had to provide those pesky three references for work? Yeah, Jon Gruden probably doesn’t even need to provide those at all considering that he’s worked with this employer before. There might be a possible reunion between the Raiders and Gruden. The rumors have been confirmed by Gruden personally.
“Well, I think I am being considered, yes. I hope I’m a candidate,” Gruden said. “My understanding is they’re interviewing candidates this week, and they’re going to let everybody know sometime early next week or whenever they make their decision.”
I’m wondering who the other candidates could be. But alas, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter pointed out, his contract might be worth a pretty penny. This comes from UpRoxx.
“Dan, when it comes in I will just say that the total value of the deal will be the richest deal that any coach has, by a landslide,” Schefter said. “Now, I don’t know that the ownership stake thing is going to come through, that had been discussed 2-3 years ago. My sense is it is not going to happen. That’s my sense. But I do think it is going to be a lengthy contract, very lucrative, and look, I think they just made it such that he couldn’t say no and that’s what you’ve got. Whatever kind of contract we could conjure up in our own minds for whatever that could be, something you couldn’t say no to, that’s what it’s going to be.”
