NFL to 'look into' whether Raiders violated Rooney Rule

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The NFL said Thursday it will investigate whether the Oakland Raiders violated the "Rooney Rule" when they hired Jon Gruden as coach.

The Fritz Pollard Alliance called for the investigation on Wednesday out of concern 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.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement that the NFL will "look into this."
