Gruden spent four years as coach for the Raiders before being dealt to Tampa Bay

    Gruden has been out of coaching for nine years while serving as the lead analyst "Monday Night Football" telecast.

    Gruden is scheduled to work the network's playoff game Saturday in Kansas City between the Chiefs and Tennessee Titans.

    Gruden spent four seasons as coach in Oakland from 1998-2001. After leading the Raiders to 8-8 records his first two years, Gruden helped the team reach the AFC title game following the 2000 season and got Oakland back into the playoffs the following season.

    Conley was slowed down by a shin injury throughout the season and was finally placed on injured reserve before having surgery to repair his injury. All told, Conley ended up playing just two games as a rookie.

    Former Raiders coach and analyst Jon Gruden has indicated that there is a good chance he accepts Oakland’s job offer.
