Confirming the worst-kept secret in sports, the Oakland Raiders announced Saturday that Jon Gruden will be their next head coach.

Gruden reportedly will receive a 10-year contract worth $100 million.

The announcement comes almost 20 years to the day when Gruden was first introduced as the Raiders' coach.

It worsened, as 52 investors sold MPC shares while 292 reduced holdings. 63 funds opened positions while 146 raised stakes. Kelley Thomas M. also sold $2.31 million worth of Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:MPC) on Thursday, December 14.

The Raiders Research Project, a repository of historical information not readily available online or from the notoriously secretive Oakland Raiders, is back in action and once again working in conjunction with Silver & Black Report.

It was a fun final game for the McDonough/Gruden combination, and whoever ESPN tabs to fill the role will nearly certainly not do the job like Gruden did, for (mostly) better and for worse.

From 1998 to 2001, Jon Gruden coached the Raiders and in four seasons.

The Buccaneers, with Gruden, won Super Bowl XXXVII on January 26, 2003 (48-21).

The Raiders were in need of a coach after they chose to part ways with Jack Del Rio.

The Powerball jackpot is soaring as the year ends meaning 2018 will get off to a great start for some lucky lottery player. It could be a mega-powerful New Year's Eve weekend with the drawing of a Powerball jackpot exceeding $300 million.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio after the team went 6-10 following a season in which they made the playoffs with a record of 12-4. In 2009, Gruden got behind the ESPN color analyst desk for Monday Night Football. Could he be the man to replace Gruden on ESPN? He is the second-youngest head coach to win a Super Bowl in National Football League history, winning a ring at age 39 in his first season with Tampa Bay.
