As Jon Gruden returns to the Oakland Raiders, Hall of Famer Jerry Rice has some words for the team.

According to Bleacher Report, Rice warned current Raiders about Gruden’s alter ego, “Chucky.”

He said:

“I hope these players are ready, because they’re going to get Chucky. They’re going to get him, and how they deal with that could tell the whole story. But Chucky’s going to come out. And either you buy in or you’re not going to be part of it.”

Rice played under Gruden for one seasonĀ during Gruden’s first stint in Oakland.

Rice also compared him to Bill Walsh, adding “he can be your best friend or your worst enemy.”

Nonetheless, Rice credited Gruden for helping build his career. He said:

“You need a coach that’s going to keep you focused, and Jon Gruden is that type of coach.”
