Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis is poised to commit to Jon Gruden for the next decade and pay a mountain of money for the privilege.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Raiders are preparing to sign Gruden to a 10-year, $100 million contract, per sources informed of the deal.
The pact, once finalized, is believed to be the richest coaching contract in NFL history, according to Rapoport. NFL teams do not disclose financial details on coaching deals.
Davis isn't opening the purse strings wide just for Gruden. Rapoport reported the coordinators are getting four-year deals. The deals would keep the staff under contract amid the team's move from Oakland to Las Vegas.
The 10-year deal with a massive salary underscores the Raiders' commitment to bringing back Gruden after trading him to Tampa Bay in 2002. Gruden spent the past nine NFL seasons as a color commentator for the ESPN's Monday Night Football broadcasts.
