  • Jon Gruden confirms interest in Raiders job: 'I hope I'm a candidate'

According to Jerry McDonald of the Mercury News, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes".

The Raiders are reportedly so interested in bringing Gruden back as their coach that they are willing to throw in an ownership stake in the team as part of the deal.

"Jon Gruden is going to be the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders".

The Raiders, who are slated to move to Las Vegas in 2020, would need to get the approval of all owners to give Gruden a piece of the team.

Gruden can not come out and say what's been widely reported - he is leaving ESPN for the Raiders job - but he did at least acknowledge the fact he is up for the job. If the rumors are accurate, it will be up to Gruden to recapture the magic which led to a 12-4 record a year ago.

Supply discipline and demand to prop up oil prices in 2018
Meanwhile, the net-bullish position on diesel rose by 26 per cent to a record as the cold snap boosted heating demand. Refiners have helped chip away at excess crude supply by turning it into products such as gasoline and diesel.

Gruden has spent the past nine seasons working as an announcer for ESPN and is scheduled to work the playoff game Saturday in Kansas City between the Chiefs and Tennessee Titans.

Jack Del Rio told reporters following the Raiders' 30-10 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers that he had been fired.

Rumors about Gruden's return to the sidelines have been going on ever since he entered the booth, and it always seemed like a matter of when not if he chose to take a job. The Raiders must comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate during the hiring process.

So why, considering how obvious the match is, is Gruden being coy about talk of his inevitable assumption of the Oakland head coaching job?

His Tampa Bay Buccaneers did win a Super Bowl back in 2002.

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.
