I know most people on here don't watch much pro football but Jon reportedly signed a 10/$100 million contract. That's crazy!

i guess Tennessee came up short in the offer to obtain Gruden.

I like Gruden and hope he does well. Don't blame him for that big of contract. But I think most people make far better commentators than they do coaches and he's one of them.

They always say the best way to get a promotion/raise is to leave a business and come back. I think the Raiders may be suffering from nostalgia a bit though. He's a good broadcaster, but he's been out of coaching for 10 years and was fired from his last job after circling the drain for a few years.

I'd rather coach a crappy Raiders team than have to put up with the finicky nature of UT fans.

Yep agree 100%. He wasn’t a great coach back then. Took over a pretty good Tony Dungy built Tampa team.

Yes he fell in at the right time at TB. I will miss him commentating and the qb camps he was doing. I will follow Oakland because of him and hope he does good.

I think he will do well at Oakland, they are loaded with talent to start with.
I don't think he was a good match for the Tenn. job.
I agree with you Rem. He is a better commentator than a coach
