There's a lot of pressure on Jon Gruden to succeed immediately in his return as head coach of the Oakland Raiders. That's the weight of a $100-million contract.
Gruden knows the expectations that come with his price tag and says he's all about earning his money.
"If I can't get it done, I'm not going to take their money," Gruden said to USA Today's Jarrett Bell on Tuesday.
Gruden said he's not focusing on perceptions of his 10-year deal or the narrative of his return to coaching from broadcasting.
"Expectations, bullseye, whatever," Gruden said. "When you start to think about the magnitude of all that, it's like the open for Monday Night Football. It's great to talk about. But that's a story for Lisa Salters to do."
