Jon Gruden still won't say he's the next Raiders head coach

NFL broadcaster and former Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden greets fans before an NFL preseason football game between the Oakland Raiders and the Dallas Cowboys in Oakland Calif. Monday Aug. 13 2012

The Raiders are transitioning into a new era with the return of coach Jon Gurden, but it appears McKenzie's job is safe moving forward. His Buccaneers beat the Raiders 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following the end of a disappointing six-win season.

According to Jim Trotter of ESPN, the Packers requested an interview with Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, but McKenzie declined.

A top priority for Oakland's next head coach will be re-establishing Carr, who struggled this past season. He last coached the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008.

Even with that said, however, this has the feeling of a farce to it, but then again, it would be the Raiders to be front and center in it. Gruden has vast football knowledge, but there is a good reason for his firing so many years ago. "More specifically, the source says the early years are much closer to $5 million annually than $10 million". He served in that role from 1998 through 2001, before being traded to Tampa Bay.

The NFL club took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon to offer its former coach a 'welcome back'.

JOE GIBBS: Gibbs won three Super Bowl titles with three separate quarterbacks during a 12-year run in Washington.

This would not mark the first time the Raiders brought back a coach for a second stint. The team went 30-34 in his four seasons, making the playoffs twice and winning one game before retiring again. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year.

ART SHELL: Shell was let go by the Raiders following the 1994 season as late owner Al Davis wanted a fresh start for the team for its move back to Oakland. Shell went 2-14 that season and was sacked after one year.
