Gruden won't be savior. A deeper dive into his recent work shows bigger issues.

After the Buccaneers' Super Bowl victory, Gruden did not win another playoff game in his remaining six seasons with Tampa Bay.

Also damaging: the fact that coaches get stereotyped.

Lee leads the team in receptions (56) and ranks second in yards (702).

Jon Gruden hasn't coached a football game since 2008.

Jan. 19, 2001: The Raiders, following a resounding 38-24 playoff win over the New York Jets, visit the New England Patriots in a divisional round game. Yes, people like him on television and he says funny things like "Spider 2 Y Banana", but he's getting paid like a sure thing when he's far from that. Gruden again takes a victory tour along the stands and to the Black Hole.

Tesla's cheaper electric auto the Model 3 struggling
It comes after a disappointing third quarter past year when only 222 Model 3s were delivered (Tesla was predicting 1,500). Tesla shares fell as much as 3.6 per cent to US$305.68, the biggest intraday drop in five weeks.

Another Monster Hunter World Beta Coming To PS4 On January 19
The three-minute clip features several dragons from the series' next chapter, some of which we've seen in previous footage. Interestingly, it focuses on the elder dragons, and showcases returning monsters like Teostra and Kushala Daora .

The new stadium will have that extra bit of sparkle, hosting a team on the rise.

After firing Jack Del Rio, the Raiders are bringing back coach Jon Gruden on a 10-year contract worth about $100 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Anything short of that would be a disappointment. That said, spending big on coaches and general managers is smart.

Lamar Jackson is leaving Louisville to enter the NFL draft, one season after becoming the youngest Heisman Trophy winner. Coach Vance Joseph took the "interim" tag off Musgrave following Denver's 5-11 season.

Black candidates wrestle with whether to go through potential sham interviews for the experience or to decline them all together.

And that's exactly how minority coaches see it. Remember, this is the same league that contends that Colin Kaepernick isn't good enough to be on an NFL roster because he wasn't playing at an elite level on a very bad football team. Cut out the meaningless regular-season games against FCS schools and expand the playoffs by a week. That's a realistic goal, and we're about to see a wave of players hit the NBA who grew up wanting to be Curry. It seems like a lot, but that's only 27 wings per player on the Bengals' 53-man active roster.
