"My understanding is they're interviewing candidates this week and they're going to let everybody know sometime early next week or whenever they make their decision", he said.
Jack Del Rio, who signed a contract extension last summer, is in trouble as the Raiders (6-9) have been the biggest disappointment in the AFC this season. However, with so many coaching vacancies expected, that shouldn't last long.
On the final day of the regular season, the Indianapolis Colts' Chuck Pagano and Oakland Raiders' Jack Del Rio became the latest head coaches to fall victim to the annual firing squad. ESPN first reported the likelihood of Gruden returning to Oakland on the eve of the season finale that Oakland lost.
Jon Gruden essentially confirmed Tuesday that the Oakland Raiders are considering hiring him as their next head coach.

The Jets hardly inspired much confidence in Morton's job performance this season, ranking 24th in points per game and 28th in passing yards per game.
Sources have said Gruden has made calls to coaches around the National Football League in an attempt to put together his staff, although he has done the same in prior years but never followed through with an of the different opportunities that were presented to him.
His Tampa Bay Buccaneers did win a Super Bowl back in 2002. If the rumors are accurate, it will be up to Gruden to recapture the magic which led to a 12-4 record a year ago. Then again, it's not like the first-year National Football League play-caller had much top-end talent at his disposal in NY.
