Jerry Rice attends Jon Gruden’s introductory press conference with Raiders

New, comments

One year with Jon Gruden, apparently left an impression with the G.O.A.T.

The Oakland Raiders introduced Jon Gruden as their new head coach on Tuesday, and there were a host of former Raiders players on hand. Former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice was among those in attendance.

Rice left the 49ers following the 2000 season and joined the Raiders in 2001. Gruden was head coach of the Raiders from 1998 to 2001 before heading to Tampa Bay to take over the Bucs. One season with Gruden might not seem like enough to justify Rice showing up, but given that it was his first season after such a lengthy career with the 49ers, I suppose it makes a little sense.

I’m curious how regularly we see Jerry at the Oakland Coliseum in 2018 vs. Levi’s Stadium....
