Mark Davis shoves all his chips in with a $100-million deal for Gruden

Jon Gruden will be announced as the new head coach of the Oakland Raiders at a press conference on Tuesday, according to multiple media reports.

ESPN reported that Gruden would receive a 10-year deal that will be the longest coaching contract in NFL history and could be worth close to $100 million U.S., which would make him the highest-paid coach in league history.

Gruden will replace former Raiders coach Jack Del Rio, who was sacked Sunday after a disappointing six-win season.

It is still quite early in the process, but this will be a key factor in determining if Gruden's return to Oakland will be successful early on, and possibly long-term.

Paris Hilton gets engaged and the ring is HUGE
This will be the first marriage for Hilton, who was previously engaged to model Jason Shaw and Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis. Hilton told USA magazine People that the engagement ring is "so gorgeous and sparkling".

The Raiders are scheduled to have two more seasons in Oakland before moving to Las Vegas.

But there has been mostly a run of losing seasons under nine coaches as only the Cleveland Browns had lost more games during Gruden's 16-year absence than the Raiders.

ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders.

He last coached for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, leading them to their first and only Super Bowl. Gruden has already started putting together a staff with Cincinnati defensive co-ordinator Paul Guenther among those expected to join. Gruden holds an all-time mark of 95-81 over 11 seasons with the Raiders and the Bucs and is 5-4 in the playoffs. Bisaccia was the special teams coordinator for all seven seasons Gruden was Tampa Bay's head coach.
