Steve Kerr's response to Jon Gruden's Raiders contract was hilarious

"These Chiefs fans have been on my case since we got here", Gruden said jokingly.

While the Raiders announced the hiring of Gruden on Saturday evening, they have yet to make public his coaching staff. McVay wouldn't commit to Olson taking the job with the Raiders. His new contract with the Raiders is for 10 years and likely approaching $100 million, sources previously told ESPN's Adam Schefter, which will take him with the franchise to Las Vegas in 2020.

In 1998 Davis hired Gruden when he was 34-years-old, and in four years Gruden became one of hottest coaching commodities in the NFL.

After spending the last eight years with ESPN as a commentator, analyst, and quarterback scout, Gruden made it known that he was looking to rejoin the National Football League in a coaching capacity again.

That's what current Rams head coach and former Gruden assistant Sean McVay wants to know. It'll be interesting to see, will he run the same offense that he was running when I got a chance to work with him in Tampa, or will he now implement some of the different things that he's had a chance to continue to be exposed to over the last handful of years?

"I think Gruden is a wonderful quarterback coach and will be ideal for Derek Carr".

"If that were to happen, we're very happy for him and everything he's done for us", Goff said of Olson's expected departure to Oakland, where he would be reunited with Derek Carr.

Gruden's return to coaching ends his nine-year stint with ESPN. Some think the transition back to coaching will be an easy one for the seasoned gridiron veteran. "He knows what he's doing", Geaslen said.

Other teams have also done it, with one of the most recent notable coaching hires being Joe Gibbs in Washington. "He just has a lot of passion and I believe in him", Brayer said.

The announcement comes almost 20 years to the day when Gruden was first introduced as the Raiders' coach.
