The NFL said Friday that the Oakland Raiders complied with the ”Rooney Rule” when they hired Jon Gruden as head coach.
The league said a review found the Raiders conducted ”bona fide” interviews with minority candidates during their search for a replacement for Jack Del Rio Von Miller Jersey , who was fired after a disappointing six-win season. The ”Rooney Rule” requires NFL teams to consider at least one minority candidate before making an offer to a head coaching candidate. The team officially hired Gruden on Jan. 6.
The Fritz Pollard Alliance, which had called for an investigation out of concern that Raiders owner Mark Davis came to an agreement with Gruden before the team interviewed any minority candidates La'el Collins Jersey , released a statement saying the NFL made the wrong call in not penalizing Davis.
”In his enthusiasm to hire Jon Gruden, Raiders’ owner Mark Davis failed to fulfill his obligation under the Rule and should step forward and acknowledge he violated the Rule Josh Allen Jersey ,” the alliance statement said.
The Fritz Pollard Alliance is dedicated to promoting diversity and equality of job opportunity on the coaching, front office and scouting staffs of NFL teams.
Gruden is in his second stint as coach of the Raiders after being traded by Oakland to Tampa Bay following the 2001 season. He led the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl title over Oakland the following season. He has been out of coaching since being fired by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season.
Detroit Lions running back LeGarrette Blount returned to training camp a day after walking off the field during practice.
Blount declined interview requests Monday.
The Lions are counting on the 31-year-old Blount to help improve their running game Julius Peppers Jersey , which has ranked among the NFL's worst in recent years.
He helped Philadelphia and New England win the past two Super Bowls. Blount ran for 1,927 yards and 20 touchdowns over the previous two seasons.
Safety Tavon Wilson attended practice KeiVarae Russell Jersey , but was not in pads with his teammates. It was not clear why Wilson was held out of drills. Defensive lineman Da'Shawn Hand left the field with his right knee wrapped in ice.
Detroit has its first day off during training camp Tuesday.
