Before this, Gruden worked as an NFL analyst for ESPN on Monday Night Football where he was reportedly earning above $6.5 million per year. He was the highest paid on-air employee in ESPN. But, the ten-year contract is step-up from his previous pay cheque. So, now let's move on to his house.

The house has a big backyard and is surrounded by trees. It is fit for a well-off person like him. It seems the house has many bedrooms and other recreational rooms.
The Raiders' coach owns a beautiful collector car; Ford Mustang GT350R. The car is custom made for Gruden in silver with a black racing stripe.
