According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Oakland (6-10) will try to lure former Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden out of the broadcast booth to take over.


Get the best sports content from the web and social in the new B/R app. "There is no news to report", Gruden said. The latter's first foray into the National Football League was a job in Oakland's personnel department, one he accepted a year before Gruden initially joined the organization.

So the question is, if Gruden isn't coming to Tampa then where will he go?

Also on Sunday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area asked Raiders owner Mark Davis about the initial ESPN report saying the team would pursue Gruden. Gruden already has been getting together his coaching staff with former Raider Rich Gannon joining him as quarterback coach, Jets offensive coordinator John Morton who would assume the same role under Gruden, former Raiders head coach Bill Callahan as offensive line coach, and either Gus Bradley or Paul Guenther as defensive coordinator.


One potential complication with the Raiders is the fact that current coach Jack Del Rio was just awarded a four-year contract extension in February. If the rumors are accurate, it will be up to Gruden to recapture the magic which led to a 12-4 record previous year. The Raiders must comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate during the hiring process.

If the Raiders do offer Gruden an ownership stake, there is a huge catch - it must be approved by other National Football League owners and there is a good reason to think they would be reluctant to do so.

Other teams that were expected to address their head coaching situation this week include the Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals, and Denver Broncos.
