"There are four major reasons I'm here coaching today".
After a video montage of his first tenure, Gruden told a room packed with reporters and former players how excited he was to have another opportunity. I've felt, as I said, for six years that Jon Gruden is the person I want to lead this team. But the biggest story going into the playoffs, has to be the Oakland Raiders rehiring of Jon Gruden. He's healthy now. He's I think been in a lot of different systems - he's played for a number of different [coaches] or has not [had] a lot of continuity around him that way. I've always loved football, I've wanted to come back, I've prepared to come back. Following the season after trading Gruden, the Raiders would reach Super Bowl XXXVII only to be beaten by him and the Buccaneers.
- Oakland averaged 24.3 points per regular season game with Gruden as head coach (scored a franchise-record 479 points in the 2000 regular season). I've prepared to come back.

OAKLAND, Calif. - When owner Mark Davis envisions the Las Vegas Raiders, he imagines a team in silver and black sprinting onto the turf of a new, state-of-the-art stadium. The guy actually on the field playing football?
Davis for his part said, "I think one of the biggest differences in teams is the front office and coaching staffs ... We are going to work great together". "I saw Charles Woodson - Brady fumbled that ball".
The Raiders also are set to hire David Lippincott from Cincinnati as linebackers coach, per Alex Marvez of SportingNews.com. It's just hard to imagine that was the primary motivation for Davis when you consider Gruden's time away from the game and most recent sample size on the sidelines. As a head coach, he is 0-6 against Bill Belichick, and as noted by CBS Sports, the Patriots have won those games by a combined score of 172-78. Still, Gruden said it was his love for the city of Oakland that helped bring him back. Perhaps he can even reach his full potential with Gruden at his side, especially coming off a year where he had a dip in completion percentage and quarterback rating.
