It looks like the Oakland Raiders have found themselves a new head coach.
According to ESPN, the team has offered Jon Gruden a 10-year contract, worth $100 million — the longest in NFL history.
The deal is not official yet, but the Raiders have called a significant news conference for Tuesday (Jan. 9), where Gruden is expected to be introduced as the new coach.
Gruden previously coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001, leadind them to first place in the AFC West in his last two seasons with the club. He has been working as an ESPN analyst in recent years.
Gruden will replace Jack Del Rio as the new head coach, after he was fired after the regular-season finale on Sunday.
According to ESPN, Raiders owner Mark Davis was prepared to pursue Gruden with a strong offer that could include an ownership stake in the team.
Gruden will be the 12th head coach since 1960 to have multiple stints with one team.
After his first stint with the Raiders, he coached the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and won Super Bowl XXXVII in his first season there.
