Former NFL wide receiver and record-breaking Hall of Famer Jerry Rice gave a sobering message to today’s Oakland Raiders roster regarding their newly minted head coach.
The end of this year’s NFL regular season spawned some disappointing results for a vast number of teams, which created a lot of vacant head coaching positions.
Case in point: The AFC West’s Oakland Raiders. Jack Del Rio, the former head coach of the Raiders was summoned by Mark Davis (the team’s owner), in a recent meeting and was told that his services were no longer needed. Davis and Company had their sights set on the next number one guy.
After weeks of speculation, Raider Nation finally got the official confirmation that former Raiders head coach Jon Gruden (pictured right) was returning to the helm of team operations to help get the franchise back to its former glory.
