Report Jon Gruden will replace Jack Del Rio as Raiders head coach

"I hope I'm a candidate", Gruden told the San Jose Mercury News, before adding he expects to know more next week.

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

The Oakland Raiders fired Jack Del Rio as coach Sunday after the team's season-ending 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, The Oakland Tribune reported.

The Raiders are interested in bringing back Jon Gruden, who they traded to the Bucs after 2001 season. He told me he loved me and appreciated all that I did to kind of get this program going the right direction, but that he felt the need to change. Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports that New York Jets offensive coordinator John Morton will be a target of Gruden's should he officially be tabbed by the Raiders. Del Rio then had an awkward and emotional post game press conference with the media where he addressed his dismissal. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others.

IMA calls off strike after NMC Bill sent to select committee
The IMA statement said the Bill bestows such widespread power to the Board that it was liable to be misused. The bill also allows private colleges to decide fee for 60 per cent of the seats; it is 15 per cent now .

But Del Rio's decision to fire coordinator Bill Musgrave after last season despite a dynamic offense and replace him with quarterbacks coach Todd Downing backfired. He went on to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl championship in 2002, beating the Raiders in the title game.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, however, there is only really a 50-50 chance of Del Rio being released at the end of the season. He played coy. Said focus is on winning next game.

The Raiders' six-win dropoff was the second-largest in franchise history from one season to the next.

Vea, in the team's worst-kept secret, confirmed to The Seattle Times that he is planning to hire an agent in the coming days and declare for the National Football League draft.
