On Friday, news broke that the Oakland Raiders are set to announce Jon Gruden as their next head coach on Tuesday and that he’ll land a 10-year deal worth $100 million.
That kind of news predictably had social media in a frenzy. Twitter users had some great reactions to the madness, and we decided to share the ones that grabbed our eyes.
Easy to pay a coach when you’re getting $750M in free money for a stadium.

Shout out Gruden for flipping one Super Bowl win into a lucrative job with the media that allowed him to develop the cult of personality that he then flipped into this absolutely absurd deal. https://t.co/49r3IFIMfB

if Bill Belichick isn’t getting paid $100 million, there’s no way any other Coach in the sport should be paid that amount.. Gruden hasn’t won 100 games yet, but getting a $100 million dollar contract. Salute. pic.twitter.com/BuJcwcn8kG

I’m going to laugh so hard when this 10 year deal backfires in 3 years. Good for Gruden tho. He really finessed them. pic.twitter.com/XnUW7ecATa
