Davis said Tuesday at the news conference introducing Gruden as coach that he had been trying to make the move for six years and finally believed it would happen after a meeting in Philadelphia on Christmas Eve, the day before the former Bucs coach worked a game between the Raiders and Eagles on ESPN.
