National Football League reportedly investigating whether Raiders violated Rooney Rule in hiring Jon Gruden

  • Mark Davis Was Ready to Violate Rooney Rule the Moment He Took Over for Al

After a disappointing 6-10 season, the Oakland Raiders have chose to make some major changes to the coaching staff.

The NFL is officially looking into whether the Raiders violated the Rooney Rule, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Gruden's hire provoked some suspicion nearly immediately upon being reported last week.

However, during Gruden's introductory news conference Tuesday, Raiders owner Mark Davis said he met with Gruden in Philadelphia on Christmas Eve, and felt "pretty confident that he was all-in" after their meeting.

Mark Davis made it clear he'd been trying to convince Gruden for years and, even though the Raiders said they interviewed minority candidates, the National Football League is now investigating the Raiders for a violation of the Rooney Rule.

Gruden coached the Raiders from 1998 to 2001 before being traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and capturing Super Bowl XXXVII.

The Rooney Rule requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate as part of an open process.

Of course, the rule works only if the NFL enforces it, which is why the Fritz Pollard Alliance and others are so adamant that the league look into whether the Raiders took it seriously in this case. Those candidates were Oakland tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and Southern California offensive coordinator Tee Martin. In a way, it led to a bogged down offense under former head coach Jack Del Rio.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said Tuesday he interviewed two minority candidates before Gruden's hiring was announced.

Carr averaged 14.5 FanDuel points this season while averaging 233.1 passing yards a game and completing 62.7 percent of his passes, with 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Before firing Del Rio, they wanted to get a read on if Gruden would leave a cushy job in the booth to coach the Raiders. In the offseason, Bell got the franchise tag after turning down a long-term contract that reports said was worth up to $30 million in the first two years because he believed the team didnt value his full skill set.
