Raiders to introduce Jon Gruden as head coach on Tuesday

A year after going 12-4 with a playoff bid in hand, the Raiders trudged to a 6-10 record and did not even compete for a spot in the postseason this time around.

"Per a league source, there's a real concern that Carr won't be able to put up with Gruden's style for very long", Florio reported.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, and Gruden said on Golic & Wingo earlier this week that there was "no truth" to ESPN's own reporting that the Raiders would offer the broadcaster an ownership stake in the team. He has been with ESPN since 2009, having last coached the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. In an ironic twist, Gruden beat his former team in Super Bowl XXXVII, 48-21. His first season was magical, as he piloted the franchise to a Super Bowl win over who else? Gannon was an MVP quarterback for the Raiders in 2002 and finally tapped into his potential as a passer under Gruden.

Gruden, who went just 57-55 in seven seasons in Tampa, was sacked after the Bucs collapsed down the stretch in 2008.
