But the Raiders new head coach did confirm that he and Davis have been talking for the last six years.

The Raiders famously traded Gruden to Tampa Bay in 2002, where he proceeded to beat Oakland in the Super Bowl.

Here are the five biggest takeaways from Gruden's introductory press conference as the next head coach of the Raiders on Tuesday.

"I never wanted to leave the Raiders, I never thought I'd be back", Gruden told reporters.

The Oakland Raiders made waves across the National Football League on Tuesday when they announced Jon Gruden as their new head coach during a press conference, but it appears they may not be done.

Saints' Cam Jordan sends Cam Newton a bottle of wine after game
I would take a free bottle of wine that, if it's the 2009 carbernet sauvignon for example, is expensive and probably tasty. After the week 3 game, Jordan made remarks on Newton's style, and again in week 13, saying he could send him "some sauce".

Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia will be allowed out of his contract to join Gruden, per Rapoport.

"Brady fumbled that ball", Gruden said, before turning serious. Gruden will be formally introduced at a news conference Tuesday. I've paid very close attention to it. Olson has been all over the map over his coaching career, making pit stops with the Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars in some sort of offensive capacity. "I feel a lot of loyalty and I feel a lot of responsibility". Gruden's coordinators will receive four-year deals, Rapoport adds. "This is what I want to do, this is the organization that I want to be a part of and I'm all in".

"I have a lot to prove", Gruden said, via NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano. I haven't won a game since 2008 - I haven't lost any either.

The energetic coach will now be tasked with turning around a mercurial Raiders team, led by quarterback Derek Carr, that fell to a disappointing 6-10 in 2017 after a 12-4 playoff trip in 2016.
