Once known as the youngest head coach in the NFL, Jon Gruden is now simply known as one of the best. Gruden’s father was an assistant coach at Notre Dame and after playing quarterback at the University of Dayton the younger Gruden followed in his father’s footsteps. After a few stints at small colleges, Gruden was hired as part of the San Francisco 49ers staff at the age of just 27. As a rising young coach, he also had positions with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles before getting his first head coaching job with the Oakland Raiders at age 35.
The Silver and Black were a mess when Gruden took over, but he brought the team back to prominence and to the verge of a Super Bowl appearance. However, disagreements with owner Al Davis led to Gruden going to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And Gruden earned sweet revenge in his first year with the Bucs as he took the team to their first ever Super Bowl. Their opponent in Super Bowl XXXVII was none other than the Raiders, and Gruden’s new team crushed his old one by a score of 48-21.
