The Colts fired Pagano on Sunday, less than two hours after they ended a 4-12 campaign with a 22-13 victory over the Texans, and the Raiders handed Del Rio a pink slip after his third year when the impressive turnaround job he engineered for his hometown team collapsed with a disappointing six-win season.

Gruden's Raiders candidacy also complicates his current job status as Monday Night Football color commentator.

Gruden has spent the past nine seasons working as an announcer for ESPN and is scheduled to work the playoff game Saturday in Kansas City between the Chiefs and Tennessee Titans.

Davis said he will not have any other statement until after a new coach has hired but speculation is rampant that Jon Gruden will be back for a second stint with the team.

Jack Del Rio was sacked by the Raiders immediately after their Week 17 loss. The Raiders must comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate during the hiring process.

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.

Tom Flores was the first Hispanic coach to win a Super Bowl and the team also hired Hue Jackson as coach in 2011 and now employs Reggie McKenzie as general manager.
