    Raiders reply to Gruden rumor

    Raiders respond to Gruden rumor - Inside the Oakland Raiders - A look inside the world of the highly classified Oakland Raiders from the writers of Bay Area News Group

    An e-mail from Raiders director media relations Zak Gilbert on the “rumor” that Jon Gruden could be rejoining the Raiders . . .

    Members of the media: There are two people on this planet that have the ability to make talks happen between Jon Gruden and the Raiders, with regard to him allegedly taking over the football operations, and/or the position of head coach. Each of those individuals, owner Mark Davis and general manager Reggie McKenzie, wanted me to communicate that this rumor has no validity whatsoever. And for the record, I’m personally disgusted that Hub Arkush would spread such an untruth on the day our head coach, Dennis Allen, had to determine with his mom, his brother and sister, whether to take his dad off life support or wait and hope that he would regain consciousness. Dennis didn’t have an opportunity to say goodbye to his dad, but he did have an opportunity to take a phone call regarding Hub’s story.

    Raiders reply to Gruden rumor

    I really don't see why anyone would think either side would admit to this at this point and time. Especially considering what just happened with Allen's father.

    Some of us knew, others simply didn't want to listen.

    Speculation is exactly that - and the "job" of media types.

    I think it's silly for anyone to think Gruden would actually come back here, the guy wants to go on a team that can win now (or at the very least not be in a "re-building" mode)

    Raiders reply to Gruden rumor

    Of course they would deny even if the rumors are true. And in regards to Gruden bit wanting to come here why not? He loves the raiders and is pissed about the fact people say he won with Dungys team. Perfect time to build his own team and show he can build a winner. All wishful thinking at this point.

    Why would Gruden want to come back? He's getting paid tons of cash to be the Monday Night guy and he gets to spend time with his family. Why would he leave all that to come to a team with salary cap issues for the next 2-3 years.

    To bad the former Raider Minister of DIS-information John Herrera didn't give that Gruden statement.....

    It's not over until the fat lady belts out a tune. 4-12 or 3-13 will do that for Mark Davis.....

    I think the only way to ever get Gruden back would be to offer him a Ton of Money and some control he has it good where he is now why come back other than try to prove a point..

    For what it's worth...

    People in the Phil area know who Howard Eskin is. He might be an AssClown. But he gets good inside info on the E-Girls and other local teams. He said a few weeks ago that there was a good chance Gruden will coach the E-Girls next year. So I do think there is a real good chance Gruden will come back and coach some NFL team. I just hope it isn't Philly......Misery loves company. Having Phil also suck this year takes some of my pain away. There isn't a team I hate more....Aso also does a show after E-Girl games. They are becoming comical.....

    I believe this press release as much as i believe the Gruden talk to begin with. Ill believe it when i see it, either way.

    "I guess I have to say it," Saban said. "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."
    "I don't know how many times I've got to respond to rumor and innuendo," Saban said. "I have no control over that. I've stated what my intentions are and they really haven't changed, so I don't know what the issue is. And I don't know why people keep asking about it. What they talk about over there is their business. But what's happening here is my business and our business, and that's what we're focused on."

    LoL
