As such - and especially with Saturday afternoon's playoff game featuring one of the Raiders' division rivals, the Chiefs - fans on social media and at Arrowhead Stadium were quick to poke fun at the situation, as well as Gruden's reported 10-year deal and worth an estimated $100 million.

Prior to kickoff, broadcasting partner Sean McDonough congratulated Gruden on taking the Oakland Raiders' head coaching job.

Gruden is set to become the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland touted Gruden's hire as "unfinished business" after Gruden went 38-26 in four seasons.

More news: Jon Gruden's return to the Raiders is rapidly approaching

Jon Gruden still won't budge.

The news was announced on Twitter with the caption "Unfinished Business", a reference to Gruden's first tenure with the team.

The Raiders traded Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he won a Super Bowl in his first season in February 2003. Ditka became legendary in the city thanks to leading the Bears to their only Super Bowl title following the 1985 season, but he was sacked after going 5-11 in 1992. He was sacked by Tampa Bay following the 2008 season and has spent the past nine years as an announcer at ESPN. The 46-year-old is perhaps the most well-respected coach on their staff league-wide. Washington and Oakland are not scheduled to play again until 2021.

Gruden responded: "Well, thank you". "Minority candidates were interviewed and we will wait and see the decision they make". Gibbs returned to coaching in 2004 and his second stint in Washington wasn't almost as effective as his first. Gibbs stepped away following the 1992 season with three Super Bowl titles in his career.
