Raiders make it official: Jon Gruden is their new coach

Reports in America suggest Gruden has been handed a 10-year contract worth $100m, which would make it the richest coaching contract in National Football League history.

The announcement was made about 90 minutes after Gruden worked as the analyst on ESPN's coverage of the AFC playoff game at Kansas City between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans.

The ESPN broadcaster agreed on a 10-year, $100 million deal with the Oakland Raiders.

"It's an emotional and bittersweet day for our Monday Night Football family as today we say goodbye to coach Gruden after nine very distinguished years in this Monday Night Football booth". The team called a news conference for Tuesday afternoon to introduce Gruden, who coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001. Good luck with the Oakland Raiders.

UN Security Council meeting on protests a Trump 'foreign policy blunder' - Iran
Ambassador Nikki Haley has praised the anti-government demonstrators as courageous freedom-seekers who need the world's support. These protests were followed on Saturday and Wednesday by large demonstrations in support of the government.

It was a fun final game for the McDonough/Gruden combination, and whoever ESPN tabs to fill the role will nearly certainly not do the job like Gruden did, for (mostly) better and for worse.

Gruden was last on the Raiders sideline during a New England game on January 19, 2002. In 2016, Oakland won 12 games, which gave Del Rio a four-year extension, but this season the team failed to deliver with a 6-10 2017 season.

'Game of Thrones' to return in 2019 for final season
Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik are confirmed to return for season eight, but none of the casting has been revealed. According to The Guardian , the fans will have to wait for a year as Game of Thrones will be reportedly returning in 2019.

Gruden beat the Raiders in the Super Bowl in his first season with the Buccaneers but didn't win another playoff game for Tampa Bay in his final six seasons. He has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season. You might be familiar with "Gruden's QB Camp", which was as segment on ESPN where Gruden would interview college quarterbacks entering the NFL Draft.
