Jon Gruden to be named coach of Oakland Raiders”

Gruden's new Raiders deal is for 10 years and $100 million, according to ESPN.

The Raiders fired head coach Jack Del Rio on Sunday at the conclusion of the team's 6-10 season in which they missed the postseason and finished third in the AFC West.

Gruden guided the Buccaneers to the 2003 Super Bowl title, defeating Oakland 48-21 in the championship contest.

One of Time's Up major aspects is a legal defense fund for which the organization is now soliciting donations via a GoFundMe. Time's Up also vows to fight for 'a significant increase of women in positions of leadership and power across industries'.

Gruden spent four seasons as coach in Oakland from 1998-2001. He was sacked by the Buccaneers following the 2008 season and has served as a color coordinator for ESPN's "Monday Night Football" ever since. Carolina Panthers coordinator Greg Olson is expected to be Gruden's offensive coordinator and Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is a top candidate for Oakland's defensive coordinator position.

The last time Gruden coached the Raiders was January 19, 2002 against the New England Patriots.

Gruden told ESPN earlier this week that he had a good talk with Raiders owner Mark Davis about returning to the organization and believed there was a "good chance" it would happen. He has a 95-81 career record.
