Kawakami: Hiring Jon Gruden is 'in a large portion a PR move'

Not only did he bring in Wade Phillips to lead the defense, but he also hired Greg Olson to coach the quarterbacks. He has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season.

In 2002 Davis famously traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for multiple draft picks.

Questions about Gruden's "control" should be answered tomorrow when the Raiders introduce Gruden at team headquarters in Alameda. And as tough as seeing Olson leave would be after all of the success from this season, keep in mind the Rams will be just fine overall since everyone knows McVay is an offensive mastermind, meaning the head coach will make the necessary adjustments to make sure Goff and the offense remains in great shape for 2018. From 2014 through 2016, McVay served as the offensive coordinator for Jay Gruden in Washington. "He's been a great coach to us". Louis Rams (2006-07), Buccaneers (2009-11), Raiders (2013-14) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2015-16).

Gruden won a Super Bowl with the Bucs during his first year with the team. "We can't thank him enough".

"I think you still have one of the Carr brothers throwing the football, so I think you need a fresh start", said Ian Lock, sports fan. It far exceeded my expectations, as far as what he's done for myself and our whole quarterback room. Now, it seems, he'll have another voice in his ear.

"If that opportunity does present itself - the respect we have for Coach Olson, that's something that we'll allow him to pursue", McVay said.

Gruden should have say in roster tweaks, and two new systems installed this offseason. Even though the Jacksonville Jaguars weren't anything to brag about up until this year, Olson received praise for the work he did in developing Blake Bortles at quarterback in the two years prior to 2017. "We'll see what happens from there".
