Jon Gruden is expected to be introduced Tuesday for his second tour in Oakland, according to multiple reports. His deal could be in the 10-year/$100 million range.
NFL Media reported Gruden already has plans to hire Rams QB coach Greg Olson as his offensive coordinator, Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther for the same role in Oakland and Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia as special teams coordinator.
Rich Gannon, who played under Gruden for three seasons before becoming the NFL MVP in 2002, has been linked to Gruden’s staff in Oakland as the quarterbacks coach.
When asked about how to work with Derek Carr, Gannon sounded as if he was already on the job.
“I would start with the lower half of his body,” Gannon told The Mercury News. “I don’t think there’s any question he’s got really great arm talent, but he gets lazy with his feet at times, he doesn’t push away through center, he gets lazy when he’s in the gun sometimes.”
Gannon also suggested the team could get more out of Carr’s athleticism without turning him into “a guy that’s running all over the yard," but it’s up to Carr to make the most out of his opportunity to return to his 2016 form.
