Jon Gruden Oakland Raiders

It’s a new day in Oakland as Jon Gruden officially took the reins of the Raiders after an uplifting, spirited introductory press conference.

After 17 years, Jon Gruden came home to Oakland yesterday. It was an emotional, exciting, and optimistic afternoon as Gruden returned to the team that made him a household name – a team that has been to the playoffs just twice since he was traded away after the 2001 season.
