Gruden would be "temped to accept" such an offer from the Raiders but would hesitate to make any decisions until after the team's regular-season finale Sunday, according to ESPN, which has employed Gruden as an analyst since 2009. The latter's first foray into the National Football League was a job in Oakland's personnel department, one he accepted a year before Gruden initially joined the organization. I do believe we have established a solid nucleus.

"Though I did run into him in the elevator at the hotel in Philadelphia", kicker Giorgio Tavecchio said.

It feels like it's only a matter of time before Gruden is named as Del Rio's successor with the Silver and Black.

Three former Yalies picked for US Olympic hockey team
Women's Olympic Team has participated in every Winter Olympic Games since the first-ever women's ice hockey tournament in 1998. The players on the men's final roster came from colleges, from Americans playing in Europe and from the American Hockey League.

Jack Del Rio, who signed a contract extension last summer, is in trouble as the Raiders (6-9) have been the biggest disappointment in the AFC this season. Asked about Del Rio's job status. Del Rio had been the ninth coach in Oakland since Gruden left but the only one to get the team to the playoffs. "It was a great honor for me to lead this organization and get this opportunity, and I understand it's a results business". He owns a 100-85 career record and won a Super Bowl in the 2002 season with the Buccaneers over the Raiders.

Several players said they know Gruden, who was in the booth for the Raiders' Christmas night loss to the Eagles, more for his work on "Monday Night Football".

"We have to take our ownership as players", Carr said.

Raiders going after Jon Gruden, offer him stake in team
Among the perks the Raiders are said to be throwing at Gruden is a partial ownership stake in the team, which is unprecedented. A healthy Derek Carr was primed to bring his team back to the promised land after so much wandering in the desert.

Del Rio handled the press conference on Sunday with class.

"It's tough", cornerback Sean Smith said. This time, it feels real, as he could the Raiders' next head coach in the coming days. "He was a coach that played the game and he was a player's coach, you know what I mean, so you always like those kind of coaches because they relate to you easily".
