What's the word on Jon Gruden?


I will start off by saying i was a Cable supporter and am very very grateful for what he has done for our Raiders. I changed our atmosphere I made the players play for something more than just there pay checks. But he has been let go and wish the best of luck the Cable guy.

Obviously there has been a lot of talk regarding Hue Jackson taking over as head coach and I feel we really REALLY need him back. This organization has proven it does not do well without some stability. Stability in coaching and stability in the QB position are much needed for success. There is nothing we can do now about Cable but Hue has been with this team for a year and would be a familiar face as head coach and is less of a change than hiring a brand new coach. The locker room is already gonna be divided with many tired of the constant coaching changes and bringing in another coach besides Jackson will only make the locker room worse. However... it is many Raider fans dream that another particular someone would come back to join the organization and acquire his old postion as the Raiders head coach. That person is Jon Gruden.

Jon Gruden has lead us to success and was the last HC to take the Raiders to a winning season. I know Gruden is interested in returning to coaching football but is he interested in coming back to the Raiders? I have not heard much talk at all about Gruden returning but then most of the talk has been focused on Jim Harbaugh. I would love for him to return and is the only other coach in my mind that can calm the locker room down. As many of you have read Shane Lechler has been really open with his frustration with the coaching change and has also said and i quote, "The last time I was this disappointed was when Jon Gruden was traded to Tampa. We went to the Super Bowl that next year but I'm not so sure that wasn't with Jon's team." If we brought him back im sure Lechler and Sebas will be open there mouth to the guys in letting them know Gruden is legit. My question is do you really think there is a chance Gruden can come back? He was the last head coach to drive us to success, but he also was the last coach to beat us in our last Super Bowl which im sure doesnt sit well with Al. So has there been any real talk on the return of Jon Gruden or is this just a Raider fans dream?

please comment and let me know.
