If you thought the Raiders had hype entering this 2017-18 season, just imagine what the expectations are going to be with Jon Gruden at the helm. It’s Super Bowl (s) or bust, really. That’s the reality when you shell out $100 million for a coach.

The Raiders officially introduced their man in a massive presser on Tuesday, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Chucky was pretty much the same guy we’ve come to know from Monday Night Football, though he did it keep it real by going out of his way to mention Tom Brady’s infamous fumble:
Even after all these years, Jon Gruden still isn’t over the Tuck Rule.

Given that he mentioned it pre-presser, it’s safe to say he really isn’t over it:

As for the the fat contract he’s reportedly getting, all Chucky could do was laugh a little:
Yeah yeah this guy doesn’t know he’s getting $100 million. Sure sure. pic.twitter.com/QQGHxoNrlA

However, he did reveal ownership in the team was not included with the millions:
Jon Gruden confirms he will not receive an ownership stake in the Raiders as part of his deal, doesn't address reported $100 million number.

Additional highlights from Chucky’s presser:
No doubt Mark Davis wanted Gruden just for his looks, right?
