    Jon Gruden to coach the Raiders again?

    Looks like the Raiders are set to make Jon Gruden an offer he may not be able to refuse.

    Raiders will reportedly chase Jon Gruden with offer including ownership stake in team - CBSSports.com

    When you've been on television for a decade as a "coach" with no negative proof of your abilities then you'll always be overhyped.

    I am wondering...... How many current NFL coaches have a higher winning percentage?

    Using Wikipedia, I counted 15.

    List of current National Football League head coaches - Wikipedia

    I'm on my phone so I may have missed one or two, or counted one or two twice.

    Looks like a lot are hovering right around 59% for their career. And you have guys like McVay and Zimmer who have very high numbers that are skewed a bit by the sample size.

    Only 6 have at least 95 wins and a higher percentage than Gruden.

    The problem is they (NFL) just recycle these coaches among teams, i.e the rumor of bringing in Hugh Jackson as Bungals HC. I know it’s the Browns but the dude is like 1-29 with them. One team fires them another brings them in as HC. It’s the good ole boy system. More teams need to follow the Rams blueprint and bring in some of these young offensive minds. Who cares if they never been a HC before.

    I'd say it's 99% or more that he'll be their next coach.

    Gruden said there is no truth to the story that he will have ownership of the Raiders.
