Jon Gruden leaves broadcast booth to again coach Raiders

The Raiders are planning a news conference Tuesday to introduce Gruden as their next head coach. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the team has made no formal announcement.

Steve Corkran of the Raiders Snake Pit was first with the news of Gruden's return.

It looks like Jon Gruden will return to once again be the head coach of the Oakland Raiders after being out of coaching for 10 years, NFL.com reports.

Current Los Angeles Rams quarterback coach Greg Olson will be Oakland's offensive coordinator, while former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther will serve in the same capacity under Gruden.

Gruden is scheduled to work the network's playoff game Saturday in Kansas City between the Chiefs and Tennessee Titans.

Oakland had previously traded Gruden to Tampa Bay for four draft picks after Gruden spent four seasons with the team. Gruden accumulated a 38-26 overall record as the Raiders coach and was 2-2 in playoff games during his four seasons.
