Jon Gruden brings up Tom Brady anger in Raiders welcome

  • Oakland Raiders new head coach Jon Gruden speaks during a news conference at the team's headquarters in Alameda California

Gruden reportedly agreed to a 10-year contract that will pay him $10-million per season to coach the Raiders.

Join us in this post for live updates throughout the day on the scene at the facility, notable quotes from Gruden's press conference and more from Chucky's return to Oakland.

The Oakland Raiders introduced Jon Gruden as its new head coach on Tuesday. "Never been more appropriate than today", Mark Davis proclaimed Tuesday as he announced the hiring of coach Jon Gruden.

In his first season in Tampa Bay, Gruden led the Bucs to a win in Super Bowl XXXVII over the same Raiders team he had just left behind. I've paid very close attention to it.

"How long I say here will be determined by how well we play".

"I have a lot to prove". He came back in 2004 and had a 30-34 record in four seasons, leading Washington to two playoff berths.

GoPro announces layoffs and end of drone business
Following a 25 percent plunge , GoPro Inc (NASDAQ: GPRO ) sharply recovered Monday on news that it may be exploring a sale. GoPro has reportedly hired J.P Morgan Chase to help the firm get ready for a potential acquisition, according to CNBC .


"I love the excitement and the thrill of competing". Gruden last coached in 2008, with the Buccaneers. "This is what I want to do, this is the organization that I want to be a part of and I'm all in". I haven't won a game since 2008.

I don't know whose idea it was to kick off a press conference with a hype video, but I can get behind that idea.

The coach also steered clear of discussing any specifics about the nature of the team he's taking over, which is coming off a disappointing 6-10 season, but did heap praise on quarterback Derek Carr. That deal was an obvious source of quizzing from the media, questions Gruden deftly deflected.

"Look, I've gotten to see every facility in the league", Gruden said.

Gruden and general manager Reggie McKenzie should work well together.

"I think he's got a huge upside", Gruden said.
