Raiders Rumors: Jon Gruden Turned Down 'Double' What Michigan Reportedly Offered Jim Harbaugh

Some interesting rumors regarding Jim Harbaugh, Jon Gruden, and Oakland's pursuit of a new head coach, via CBS NFL insider Jason La Canfora:

With Harbaugh's offer from Michigan reportedly in the 6-years, $50 million range, that would mean Gruden turned down something in the neighborhood of $15 million per year - over twice as much per year as the next highest-paid football coach - to coach the Raiders. If the rumors are true and that wasn't enough to lure him to Oakland...well, fans should probably accept that Gruden isn't coming back.

What's more interesting, though, is the idea that Davis could offer Harbaugh - who reportedly would prefer to stay in the NFL (and ideally in the Bay Area) - more than Michigan could.
