Guden’s old team introduced the former Dayton Flyers quarterback as their head coach roughly 16 years after his first stint with the team ended.

Gruden coaches the Raiders from 1998-2001 before being traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He led his second team to a Super Bowl win over his first one the following season and remained the coach of the Buccs through the 2008 season.

After they fired him, he went into broadcasting with ESPN.

The Raiders lured him back to coaching with a reported 10-year, $10 million contract.
