During an interview with the "Golic and Wingo" show on Wednesday morning, Gruden dispelled the rumor that an ownership stake is on the table. "And they've got to fix this auto and I am going to be intrigued with how Jon does that, along with Rich Gannon". "When [Raiders owner Mark Davis] knows, I think we'll all know". Furthermore, if Gruden accepts the job, he would be working with a team that is scheduled to go to Las Vegas in 2020, which means that that would not have to worry about paying state income tax. In 2015, as an analyst for Monday Night Football, Gruden became ESPN's highest-paid on-air employee with a yearly salary of $6.5 million.
Most recently, Gruden is believed to be the leading candidate for the Oakland Raiders head coaching job, a team he previously coached. The Raiders have just made another coaching change, and have just one winning record since the last time Jon Gruden coached them. "None. Zero. No ownership that's for sure".
Despite the fact that he has not been a football coach in any capacity since 2008, there is a growing chance that Jon Gruden could soon return to the NFL as a head coach. "I am excited about where I am in terms of studying the game and prepared to come back and coach".
Gruden: Between you and your brother "I want you. Whoever comes in here has a chance to take that nucleus and go to special places, and I'll be pulling for them".
"It's been a long couple of weeks, I know they've gone through their process of interviewing candidates and until they're done I won't know, but I did have a good meeting with Mark". "When you interview people you know have the ability to do this job, you are not hurting them".
This in light of a late-season tongue-lashing by former coach Jack Del Rio and assistants following the Raiders' 26-15 loss at the Kansas City Chiefs on December 10, a game Oakland entered with a record of 6-6 and tied for first place in the AFC West.
Perhaps some foreshadowing? another gem from the QB Camp segment was Gruden saying that "Al Davis would be very, very proud" of Carr.
Gruden was the color analyst for the Raiders Christmas Day game in Philadelphia.

"He's such an upbeat, great kid", Gruden said.
Gruden is still slated to call this weekend's AFC wild card game between the Chiefs and Titans on ESPN alongside Sean McDonough, Lisa Salters and Adam Schefter.
