Oakland Raiders sign Jon Gruden as their next head coach


NFL Media reported earlier this week Gruden already has plans to hire Rams quarterbacks coach Greg Olson as his offensive coordinator, Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther for the same role in Oakland, and Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia as special teams coordinator.

The Raiders officially announced Gruden will be their new head coach shortly after the game.

After days of speculation and reports, the team formally announced the move on Saturday evening following the conclusion of the Titans-Chiefs AFC Wild Card Game.
