"I told Coach Gruden that he's about to walk into a room full of hungry dogs", Penn said.
"So I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon!"
So, yes. Hiring Gruden was clearly a way in which the Raiders hope to keep their fans loyal to the franchise after they leave for Las Vegas, but their Northern California rivals were also guilty of the same when they hired Kyle Shanahan.
The naming of Gruden marks his return to coaching after spending almost a decade in broadcasting, including color analyst duties on the Monday Night Football franchise from 2009 to 2017.
Penn spoke with Gruden recently, and said incumbent Raiders will be ready for his coaching style, motivated to improve on last year's disappointment. But unfortunately for the Rams, it looks like the team may soon need to consider a replacement for their beloved quarterbacks coach since Olson is drawing interest from Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders, which shouldn't come as a surprise.
Rams head coach Sean McVay has often said how Gruden has been a mentor throughout the course of his young coaching career, especially considering Gruden hired McVay right out of college to be an offensive assistant in 2008.
In 2002, Gruden was traded to Tampa Bay, where he coached the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory over the Raiders the following season.
He spent the last eight years working as an announcer on "Monday Night Football" for ESPN.
Jon Gruden will once again be the Raiders head coach after previously coaching the team from 1998-2001.
"There's a lot of things, but every coach is part marketing", Kawakami said. It kind of fits that whole image for him.
Gruden is leaving ESPN as one of the top personalities at the network to take him $100 million in reported salary with the Raiders.
