  • Steve Kerr jokes he needs to talk to Warriors GM after seeing Jon Gruden's $100 million deal

As Gruden himself pointed out to broadcast partner Sean McDonough before the start of Saturday's wild-card matchup between the Chiefs and Titans: "Nothing's official yet, but these Chiefs fans have been on my back since I got here".

Gruden replaces Jack Del Rio, who left the Raiders on December 31 after three years. The longtime head coach will reportedly sign a 10-year, $100 million contract. Gruden helped the Raiders earn back-to-back playoff appearances in 2000, and 2001, but was traded the following year to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he won a Super Bowl in his first season with team, against none other than the Raiders.

NYC, Long Island brace for winter storm
How much the storm affects the coast is contingent on a number of factors, most notably how far out to sea it tracks. Thursday morning through late evening, wind gusts are likely to reach over 50 miles per hour along the coastline.

"It's an emotional and bittersweet day for our Monday Night Football family as today we say goodbye to coach Gruden after nine very distinguished years in this Monday Night Football booth. It'll be tough for a lot of us on the crew to be impartial when we go into those production meetings and see you next year".

The defensive line struggles with defense coordinator Ken Norton Jr., leading to a late-season firing and replacement with John Pagano. His Buccaneers beat the Raiders 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII.

But, Khloe wasn't buying what she was selling, as you can see by the way the rest of the conversation played out. She quipped: "They say that men take on sympathy cravings, or pregnancy or whatever".

All this combined led to the firing of Del Rio at the conclusion of his third season and the fight to get Gruden.

In 2006, former owner Al Davis hired Art Shell, after firing him the first time. Paul Guenther will be his defensive coordinator with Rich Bisaccia as his special team's coach. While the quality of the Monday Night games for ESPN hasn't been that great, folks have tuned in to hear what a souring relationship sounded like in real time.

Justin Timberlake spent New Year's with James Taylor
With everything being released before his Super Bowl performance, time can only tell if he will perform any music from the album. Man of the Woods makes it debut at the flawless time as Timberlake is set to perform at the 52 Super Bowl on February 4, 2018.

After his firing from Tampa Bay, Gruden's Fired Football Coaches Association became a think-tank for coaches no longer ont he sidelines.
