Davis began the press conference by stating "once a Raider, always a Raider".
"I told Derek this is an unbelievable opportunity", said Gannon, who played under Gruden in Oakland from 1999-2001. "I'm so thrilled to be back, and I hope people understand the emotion inside me - I fell unfinished business and also I feel a lot of loyalty and I feel a lot of responsibility to get the Raiders going again".
"But over the last six years, I've really gotten to know Jon and his family", Mark Davis said. After coaching the Raiders for four seasons, owner Al Davis traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Since he was shipped to Tampa, Oakland has gone 92-164 (.359) with two playoff appearances - including the first year following Gruden's departure, when his Buccaneers beat the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII.

Normally when your team goes home early, it's a painful experience that takes a while to work its way through your system. If he is not healthy then Taylor is going to have to be able to throw the ball for the Bills to win this game.
In 11 years of total head coaching experience to date, Gruden has a regular season record of 95-81-0.
Added Gruden: "I've prepared to come back". The Raiders played a Monday Night Football game December 25 in Philadelphia, and Davis met Gruden before kickoff against the Eagles.
Gruden said the coaches face the challenge of creating a successful scheme for Carr to thrive in. "I thought that I could really get by with the quarterbacks we had".
After agreeing to a massive $100 million contract that spans 10 years, Gruden will now have a chance to write a new ending with the Raiders. With Raiders legends such as Charles Woodson, Jerry Rice, Jim Plunkett and Howie Long among the former players in attendance, the fanfare for Gruden's arrival seemed long-anticipated. He said he made the move to give something back to his hometown of Oakland before the team moves to Las Vegas in 2020.
Does Gruden have a no-trade clause in his contract this time?

We won't know who carries more clout, but Davis didn't hire his dream candidate only to minimize Gruden's influence on the roster. "He's been a great coach to us".
Sean McVay was asked if he would be looking forward to coaching against his mentor, Jon Gruden, next season. Gruden noted that he plans to call plays. That's been the No. 1 criteria I've tried to bring every place I've been as a head coach. "I have not coached since 2008".
Gruden became seriously interested in the job this season as the Raiders underperformed.
"Look, what has changed is the collective bargaining agreement as changed the way we practice, the way we conduct ourselves in the off-season", Gruden said.
