It appears that any speculation of Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie returning to the Packers can be put to rest after ESPN's Jim Trotter reported that McKenzie declined an interview with his former team this week. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season.

The Buccaneers went 12-4 in his first season and finished 57-55 with three playoff appearances in Gruden's seven seasons.

The Raiders have complied with the "Rooney Rule" and interviewed minority candidates for the job, according to National Football League spokesman Joe Lockhart. "We congratulate you as you head back to the sidelines with the Raiders".

Gruden told ESPN earlier this week that he had a good talk with Davis about returning to the organization and believed there was a "good chance" it would happen.

Lewis said when he signed a new two-year contract to stay on board as head coach that he wanted to retain Guenther on his staff.

Unofficially, Jon Gruden has been the head coach of the Raiders since Jack Del Rio was sacked immediatley following Oakland's week 17 loss to the Chargers. He took over as general manager in Seattle in 1989 before going back to coaching with the Seahawks in 1992.

This time it is really happening, and Raiders fans should be excited. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year. He came back in 2004 and had a 30-34 record in four seasons, leading Washington to two playoff berths. "Welcome home Gruden! Go Raiders!" Shell had spent his first six years away from the Raiders as an assistant coach but had been out of the profession entirely for five seasons when Davis hired him a second time. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year.
