Jon Gruden's contract heavily backloaded to take advantage of Nevada tax law

Gruden is in Kansas City to call Saturday's AFC wild-card game between the Chiefs and Titans for ESPN.

Gruden will be announced this week as the next coach of the Oakland Raiders, and thus was working his last game for ESPN; McDonough made clear that Gruden was liked and respected not just by his broadcast partner, but by everyone involved with ESPN's National Football League production.

"Oh, thank you", Gruden said.

Of course, the Warriors won't want a lame-duck coach next season and Kerr has a good chance to add a third title before Gruden even coaches another game with the Raiders.

It's been widely reported that Jon Gruden will be the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders. The Oakland Raiders are set to bring Jon Gruden back for a second stint as coach. Oakland won 12 games in 2016 to earn Del Rio a four-year extension but the team fell flat this season.

Gruden has reportedly agreed to a 10-year, $100 million contract, the largest for a coach in National Football League history.

Then after that he will head to Oakland with the task of resurrecting Carr after a down year and getting the Raiders back to the postseason. It's an emotional and bittersweet day for our "Monday Night Football" family as today as we say goodbye to coach Gruden after nine very distinguished years.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Gruden's contract, and the contracts his assistants will sign, will be heavily backloaded. Gibbs stepped away following the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career.

Gruden beat the Raiders in the Super Bowl in his first season with the Buccaneers but didn't win another playoff game for Tampa Bay in his final six seasons.
