Advocacy group calls on NFL to investigate Raiders to violating 'Rooney Rule'

ALAMEDA — The Fritz Pollard Alliance called Wednesday for the NFL to investigate whether the Oakland Raiders violated the "Rooney Rule" when they hired Jon Gruden as coach. Fritz Pollard Alliance counsel Cyrus Mehri and N. Jeremi Duru said they were concerned that Raiders owner Mark Davis came to an agreement with Gruden before the team interviewed any minority candidates as required by the NFL since 2003.
