He is scheduled to work his final game Saturday in Kansas City when the Chiefs take on the Tennessee Titans in a playoff game.

It had been reported from a number of media outlets that Gruden would return as coach and receive a formal introduction Tuesday during a news conference.

After getting fired from the Bucs in 2009, Gruden went to ESPN and became the main color commentator of Monday Night Football. The longtime head coach will reportedly sign a 10-year, $100 million contract.

Jon Gruden's presumptive last ESPN broadcast before becoming coach of the Raiders started with a farewell - even as Gruden declined to make it official.
