12:00 pm
good afternoon. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> i'm mike mibach. the raiders a welcoming back a familiar face, jon gruden. >> is being introduced as the new head coach. marquis bundy is live at headquarters before the introduction. >> reporter: right now jon gruden is right behind me hitting ready to be introduced to not only the bay area media but the bay area at large. he's waiting to be introduced probably by mark davis, i would imagine. what is otherwise a gloomy day in oakland, completely brightened by the presence of an amazing array of former raiders stars. how we long, charles woodson, rich gannon, jerry rice, you name it. they are here. if you can pan to the right a little bit. it's in that facility right there that they are all
12:01 pm
gathered. they moved it into the weightlifting room which is usually able to seat about 200 or 300 people. let's get back to jon gruden. he is being interviewed by probably the raiders' a channel. we overheard him say this is a great day in my life. very exciting. charles woodson pranced into the press conference a few minutes ago. basically saying, raiders! raiders! they are really like little kids. there is an extreme air of excitement. just so you know, i'm having a hard time hearing you guys. i'm going to go back. >> i think the owner of the raiders just sat down in front of the microphone. let's listen in to the owner right now. >> reports that jon gruden is
12:02 pm
out there looking to get into coaching. >> it looks like they are running a video first and then we will hear from jon gruden and mark davison a little bit. joe, i keep talking about his first priority. what do you think jon gruden wants to change with the organization? a year ago they were in the playoffs and this year was a dismissed appointment. >> i think we should also recap a little bit that it's almost 20 years ago to the day that jon gruden was initially introduced as the head coach. i think the number one thing the raiders need to address is no one knows exactly why derek carr went backward this year. and he is known as an offense guru, a quarterback whisperer. that will be topic number one. try to get derek carr straight. okay they were talking about in terms of potentially being an mvp candidate last year and the guy who undoubtedly went backward this last year. that's one of the major reasons
12:03 pm
why the raiders, who were initially talked about as a super bowl contender, struggle the way they did. that will be the number one priority. >> raiders fan base seems to be behind gruden? >> the one talking about it. just about every coaching vacancy for a decade or so that jon gruden has not been a coach, he's been mentioned as the one that everyone wishes for. is there a chance we can get him out of retirement? initially when you hear those things, you are wondering -- we've heard this before. i think it's fair to say that mark davis took a big swing and he got the big fish. talk about the fan base. they have loved him ever since he was here. in fact, one of the reasons he supposedly left here is because al davis, the old at the time, did not like the fact that jon gruden had become the face of the raiders. there is a famous story about al driving down the a katy freeway and seeing a billboard that had jon gruden's face on it. he saw he had become the face
12:04 pm
of the raiders and shortly after that he was traded to tampa bay. >> let's listen in. >> please welcome the head coach of the oakland raiders, mr. jon gruden.[ applause ][ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. thank you. i'd just like to thank mark davis and mrs. davis, for this opportunity. i used it to get phone calls from al davis at 3 am. now i get them from mark davis at 3 am. but i want to thank you for this opportunity from the bottom of my heart. i want to thank you, cindy, my wife and my three sons, for supporting me in going after this opportunity. and it takes a family effort, i
12:05 pm
think, to be all in on something like this. and i'd also really like to thank all of the rater players that are here today. i saw charles woodson. brady fumbled that ball. tim brown, howie long, eric allen, jerry rice, jim otto, ted hendricks -- it's about the people for me. and that's a big reason that i'm here today. obviously, this is very emotional for me. i never wanted to leave the raiders. i never thought i'd be back. but here i am and i'm ready to get to work. and i just want to say that there's really four major reasons that i'm here coaching today. number one, i love all. i love the players that play it. i love the preparation. i love the journey. i love football. and i love the city of oakland. i had a son here. some of my great memories in life are in oakland.
12:06 pm
and i want to give them two of the best years of football that i can possibly help deliver. and i love the raiders. the brand is global. everywhere i went as a monday night football analyst, the raider nation would come out of the ground. i love the raiders. most of all i love to win and i'm going to do everything i can , no guarantees, no promises, but i want to win. i look forward to working with reggie and his staff. we have a lot of work to do. we've hired three coordinators already. paul guenther from the cincinnati bangles is official. a great addition to our football team. which percent cheat will be our special teams coordinator from the cowboys and greg olsen will be our offense coordinator coming over from the los angeles rams. i can't wait to get started and it's an emotional time for me but i will answer any questions i can. thank you.
12:07 pm
>> media, please raise your hand and find the microphone on a side. when you ask a question, please stand up and state your name and affiliation. >> terry mcdonough, bay area news group. can you take us through the process of when this really got serious and to where you are now? >> i don't know. mark and i have been friends a long time. i think over the last six or seven years we have talked about the raiders, not necessarily becoming a coach but maybe ways that we could improve the raiders or my vision of how i thought i could help them. market came to me a few weeks ago and asked me or a couple weeks ago and asked me if i had any intentions of coaching and with the support of my family i said yes, i do.
12:08 pm
it's a mysterious way that it all came together but, here i am. i really don't have a solid explanation other than that. >> phil barber, santa rosa gazette. i'm sure that you have had offers pretty much every year to be back on the sidelines since you left them in tampa bay. why now? why was the timing right this year? why was a different? >> in my heart. i feel this is the thing to do. this is what i want to do. this is the organization i want to be part of and i'm all in. i only live one time. this is something i feel deeply, strongly about and i'm going to do everything i can to hire a great coaching staff and put the raiders back on track. >> vern glenn, kpix-tv. once you make that decision,
12:09 pm
from that point on, where you diagramming police in your head? were you thinking spider 2 wide banana? what were the emotions once you made that decision and said hey, this is a. >> the reality is i have not changed at all since 1998. i really haven't. i'm not a deep, philosophical person. i've always loved football. i wanted to come back. i'm prepared to come back. i ready to roll. i'm just ready to go. i'm at a point in my life where i need another challenge and i know i have a lot to prove and am eager to prove that i can do it. yes, i've been thinking of a lot of place. and when i met derek carr this morning, i thought of a few more. just so you know. [ laughter ] >> john, and killian with the san francisco chronicle. you say you haven't changed all that we are all a little bit
12:10 pm
older than we were the last i'm out here. do you still have the maniacal energy and passion and three 3:17 am wake-up call and all of that? >> subpar, i do. yes i do. my wife and kids i think can attest to that. work ethic is a big part, i think, of anyone's success. and any success i've had, i think, starts with the drive. the excitement of getting up and helping a team and helping a player improve. my schedule hasn't changed at all. it really hasn't. >> ed gray me from las vegas review-journal. what we've seen of you in the last week with derek carr is you and he at the camp many years ago. you've met him now. talk about what you've seen in his maturation and development and what you are looking forward to working with him? >> my feelings are similar. he has a great arm talent. he is athletic. he's got natural leadership skills. he's young and in his prime.
12:11 pm
he's healthy. he is i think been in a lot of different systems and he's played for a number of different quarterbacks. does not been a lot of continuity that way around him. i think he has a huge upside. i think with greg olsen and the system we are putting in place, it will demand a lot from him and i think that's what's going to unlock the greatness in him. but, very, very excited to have him as our quarterback. >> john charles stuart from various inews group. 10 years is a long time to be away from the sidelines. how is the green chick -- game change in her opinion? has a change that much and how much are you going to have to adjust from the coach you were 20 years ago? >> 20? i'm not that old, carl. what has changed is the collective bargaining agreement has changed. the way we practice. the way we conduct ourselves in the off-season. obviously, the rules have changed.
12:12 pm
player safety has now emerged as critical part of the game. i paid very close attention to it. i have a lot to prove. is no question. i have not coached since 2008. i have not one game since 2008. i haven't lost any, either. i want to keep that in perspective. i need to hire a great coaching staff. that's been the number one criteria i've tried to bring everyplace i've been as a head coach. it's about the people. it's about the staff. it's about the temple we establish as a coaching staff. with that said, i have a lot to prove. i know that. but the game is still decided by players between the lines and we all have to adapt every year. >> the new head coach of the oakland raiders, jon gruden, addressing the media and answering their questions thing he has a lot to prove but also saying he's all in and he talked about the fact that he is not won a game since 2008. he had a sub .500 record.
12:13 pm
he did not win a lot when he was with tampa. since he's been in the broadcast booth, will that help him be a winning coach from here on out? >> i thought he address a couple of those outstanding points. number one, when you're in the media, you don't lose any games but you don't win any games. you are like switzerland. you can say that was a great game and you don't care that you were on the losing side of an incredible finish. gruden goes from that into that cauldron, and i thought a very telling question -- he was known for his crazy work ethic. a guy who originally, as what they call quality control, the guy who breaks down the tapes for the other assistant coaches -- that started in the 49ers offices under mike holmgren. gruden was this kid who was not high enough up the food chain to be allowed into the actual meetings. he would get there at 4 am and
12:14 pm
have his back to the wall so he could hear what was going on in the offense meetings but finally they said, come in and you can listen to the stuff. that's how driven he was. he had an incredible work ethic and that's what you need to have as a head coach in the nfl. you don't work that hard in the media. you study all week for a game that you will do. the question was, as a 50-year- old, as opposed to a 30-year- old or 20-year-old, are you willing to put in those hours. he said he is. his family has grown and his kids are in school so now he has the ability to do that. the other pertinent question was today's player. he's had a generation of being out of the guys who are snapchating and tweeting what's going on in the locker room. he is a very hands on style coach. he is in-your-face. can today's player deal with that? or does he have to adjust and ease off on that? i thought it was interesting. he said you're always evolving with the game. the other thing that's changed dramatically was all the attention to the head injuries and things like that. the rules have changed to protect the players.
12:15 pm
there are a lot of things he will have to adjust to but i think the most important thing is is he ready to bring the fire in the passion and the chucky expressions and all that. we saw some of them already today. it will be fun to watch. the other interesting thing is two years in oakland where he loves her. guess where the raiders are going after two years. that one year that has yet to be decided where they are playing because there's no lease on the colosseum at that point. that's another element that he will be, by all accounts, aerator head coach for 10 years but two of those will be in oakland. the rest will be in las vegas. >> he said it was football, oakland, the raiders and winning. we will see. a great reintroduction to jon gruden. let's look at the weather. that's another major concern of the day. we saw a lot of rain yesterday. upwards of 2-3 inches in urban areas and up to 5 in the hills. this is winding down.
12:16 pm
we are looking at mostly cloudy skies and if you scattered showers into the afternoon. here's a look at the satellite and radar. let's take a look at portions of the sale today. portions of the santa cruz mountains are still picking up some rain along highway 101. also in portions of saratoga, cupertino and los gatos. as we shift into the central by and east bay, some light rain is falling. sprinkles here and there from san francisco stretching across the bay bridge and into the east bay of oakland. if we go further north we have the richmond-san rafael bridge. maybe a few sprinkles there and around american canyon. along highway 4, you also find some in antioch, bay point and along 680 and concord. the second half of the afternoon, this will continue to wind down. snow levels her back up in the sierra. here is the system over southern california.
12:17 pm
southern california is dealing with a lot as far as flooding and debris flow and mudslides. for us, we are in good shape. here's a look when you can expect into the afternoon. this continues to push out of the area as the storm moves to the east. here is a look at what we would consider the start of the evening drive. into the evening hours, continuing to dry out. we will have a slight chance for showers on wednesday. i will detail that and look at the rest of the week and what you can expect for the afternoon highs today. the storm is not caused any major problems in sonoma and napa counties in the areas burned by the fires. the flash flood watch was canceled around 2 am. people have done what they can to reduce the risk of debris flow and mudslides. the area got several inches of rain which caused some floating. the assistant buyer marchal said this is the first significant test to see if all the precautions put in place over the past few months will pay off during the winter storms. >> hopefully the rainfall rates
12:18 pm
