According to Raiders report Steve Corkran, Jon Gruden is set to become the next head coach of the Raiders. It is believed that he will bring in well regarded Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther to run his defense.

Despite not coaching in almost a decade Gruden has routinely been a magnet for head coaching rumors.

His tenure ended shortly after the "Tuck Rule" loss to the New England Patriots when he was traded the following month to Tampa Bay for two first-round draft picks, two second-rounders and $8 million.

The Oakland Raiders have apparently completed their interview process and decided on their next head coach, and you will never guess who landed the job. ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders. He went on to win Super Bowl XXXVII with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons.

Several assistant coaches have already been hired by the Raiders in anticipation of Gruden's hiring.

Gruden will become the 12th head coach since 1960 to have multiple stints with one team, and the 16-year gap between jobs with the Raiders is the largest in National Football League history for a head coach with the same team.

Gruden has been lining up potential members of his coaching staff.
