One of the most compelling stories of the offseason was a move by the Oakland Raider where they signed a familiar face in now former broadcaster and coach Jon Gruden to become their head coach. Gruden is returning to the sidelines by signing a 10-year, $100 million contracts for a second stint at the helm of the Raiders. The enlightening personality of the veteran coach recently told the media that he's not going to accept the Raiders money if he can't drive Oakland down the right path.

Gruden says he won't take his contract money if he can't "get it done."

Gruden has many big paydays in his future, that is if he believes he deserves to take the money.

In a recent article by USA Today, Gruden told the outlet that he may not take the Raiders' money.

"If I can't get it done, I'm not going to take their money," Gruden told USA Today Sports.

Gruden has been out of the coaching realm for nearly a decade, taking on the broadcast booth with ESPN. He became a pinnacle in the booth alongside Mike Tirico and most recently Brian McDonough on Monday Night Football.

Now to see him back on the field is an interesting story to most until the football world can see if his old-football style can adapt to the new era with quarterback Derek Carr and Khalil Mack, the centrepiece of the Raiders defence leading the way on both sides of the ball.

Gruden is in a win-now mentality

The way Gruden talks about his contract and his team, it sounds like he's playing for the now.

His 10-year contract is the biggest contract for an NFL coach in the history of the NFL, but he knows there are no guarantees in the future with the Raiders ultimately staying in Oakland Coliseum for now.

"Who guarantees I'm going to live 10 years?" he said. "So I don't think about that. You start thinking about a 10-year contract-people don't know how it's structured and it doesn't matter... I've got more important things to worry about than eight years of my contract."

He referred to whether or not Mack would be showing up to camp being that he likely wants a new contract while he is in the final year of his rookie deal. As of right now, Mack is set to make about $13.9 million dollars.

Gruden reiterates that he can only control what is in his hands. "...I can only control what I can."

Gruden hopes to bring the same like the success that he had during his first stint with Oakland as their coach from 1998-2001 and as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach from 2002-2008 where he won Super Bowl XXXVII in 2002.

Maybe being out of coaching won't be a factor for the highly-liked coach, he's had a front-row seat to the games since leaving for the broadcast booth.
