Del Rio's firing catches Carr by surprise


And even before owner Mark Davis made Del Rio's firing official, rumors had started to swirl about a potential reunion between the Raiders and Gruden, who coached in Oakland from 1998-2001.

In an interview on ESPN's "Golic and Wingo" Wednesday, Jon Gruden said it's likely he'll be the next head coach of the Raiders if offered the job.

Jon Gruden will be the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders. "There is no news to report", Gruden told the network Saturday.

When the coaching carousel begins 24 hours from now, the Oakland Raiders are expected to make a push for current Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden.

The Daily News reported if Gruden does go to Oakland he might try to recruit Jets offensive coordinator John Morton to go with him and that NY will not stand in his way.

But looking back, he wishes he had returned earlier: "I think I stayed out too long", Vermeil, a member of the San Jose Sports Hall of Fame, said Tuesday. Yeah, sometimes owners. Guys want to bounce ideas off me.

According to Forbes , Durachinsky has been in custody since he was arrested in January a year ago and is now awaiting trial. He then gave his findings to law enforcement, which may have provided the evidence used to bring this week's indictment.

"You can line anybody up against me and I'm going to throw against them", Carr said.

As such, it figures to be a busy off-season in the Bay Area as the team prepares to move to Las Vegas for the 2020 season. Following the Super Bowl run of his first season in charge, the Bucs never won another playoff game under Gruden. It seems all that needs to happen before Gruden's hiring is made official is the satisfaction of the Rooney rule and Gruden calling the National Football League playoff game for ESPN this coming weekend.

Asked specifically if he was a candidate, Gruden said, "Well, I think I am being considered, yes".

Gruden and Reid worked together on Mike Holmgren's staff before each eventually ascended to head coaching positions. What have they got?

Del Rio, who grew up in the East Bay city of Hayward cheering for the Raiders, took over a three-win team in 2015 and immediately changed the culture and helped Oakland win seven games that season.

Gruden told Carr that if he were choosing, he would factor in the brothers' different skill sets and the differences in the game. The reason we identify Del Rio's dismissal as most notable is because of his reported replacement. "We are kind of angry that we let it get to that, but we understand the business part of it".
