Raiders concerned about how Derek Carr will get along with Jon Gruden

According to multiple online reports, Jon Gruden will be introduced as the Oakland Raiders' next head coach on Tuesday.

The Raiders fired Jack Del Rio following a disappointing six-win season and talk immediately turned to Gruden. He has not coached since his seventh and final season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. During that time, the Raiders won two AFC West titles and advanced to the conference championship once.

Gruden coached the Raiders between the 1998 and 2001 seasons.

Current Los Angeles Rams quarterback coach Greg Olson will be Oakland's offensive coordinator, while former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther will serve in the same capacity under Gruden. ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders. He has a 95-81 career record. "Minority candidates were interviewed", National Football League executive vice president of communications Joe Lockhart said during a conference call Friday.

Egypt hot air balloon crash: casualties reported
The Valley of the Kings, which has dozens of ancient tombs, including that of King Tutankhamun, is located just outside the city. In 2009, 13 tourists were injured when their hot air balloon struck a communications mast in Luxor and crashed.

Per ESPN's Jim Trotter, the Raiders complied by interviewing tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and "an unidentified college coach" earlier this week. "Minority candidates were interviewed and we will wait and see the decision they make".

The Buccaneers went 12-4 in his first season and finished 57-55 with three playoff appearances in Gruden's seven seasons.

Other teams have also done it, with one of the most recent notable coaching hires being Joe Gibbs in Washington.
