Jon Gruden will be announced as the new head coach of the Oakland Raiders at a press conference on Tuesday, according to multiple media reports.

It looks like Jon Gruden will return to once again be the head coach of the Oakland Raiders after being out of coaching for 10 years, reports.

Gruden will replace former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, who was sacked Sunday after a disappointing six-win season.

Gruden has served as ESPN's color commentator on Monday Night Football broadcasts since 2009.

Gruden told ESPN earlier this week that he had a good talk with Raiders owner Mark Davis about returning to the organization and believed there was a "good chance" it would happen. During that time, the Raiders won two AFC West titles and advanced to the conference championship once.

This season Oakland missed the playoffs with a final record of 6-10, after ending a 14-year postseason drought a season ago finishing 12-4.

Gruden coached the Raiders from 1998-2001.

He last coached for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, leading them to their first and only Super Bowl. Overall, Gruden is 95-81 in 11 seasons.

The Raiders will be required to comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate or otherwise face discipline from the NFL. "Minority candidates were interviewed and we will wait and see the decision they make".
