Jon Gruden and Bruce Allen Fired

After an unsuccessful few years in Tampa Bay, the tandem that brought the Raiders to the 2002 Super Bowl have been fired. You have to wonder if the Raiders might make a call to two men they used to employ. It isn’t likely they will be able to get a job together outside of maybe, the Raiders.

Bruce Allen is respected by Al Davis and was the closest to a GM the Raiders have had in many years. Gruden is a good offensive mind and provided he doesn’t land a head coaching job elsewhere, might make a good offensive coordinator.

Not sure how it would work, but Cable, Gruden, Bruce Allen would certainly qualify as the big splash Davis wanted to make. Stay tuned!

Tampa Bay Presser at 4 p.m. Pacific
