When Adam Schefter says it, he means it, and if that stands true currently, then many Oakland Raiders fans are going to be very, very happy with his comments on Sunday evening.
After the Raiders announced they had fired head coach Jack Del Rio, the speculation surrounding Jon Gruden coming back to coach the Silver and Black picked up a ton of steam. Then, ESPN’s Adam Schefter took that already red-hot fire and just piled a ton of logs right on top of it.
As 247Sports cited on Twitter, Schefter said that Gruden will unquestionably be the next coach of the Raiders and that it’s just a matter of time before it happens.
“Jon Gruden is going to be the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders. Only question is when it happens”

Many Raiders fans were clamoring for it, and it seems that it’s going to come true.
Obviously, Mark Davis and company have some type of a plan here, as it took literally almost no time for the decision to be made to part ways with Del Rio. Now, we’ll play the waiting game until the news on a potential hire (Gruden) winds up dropping.
