Jon Gruden has been linked to virtually every coaching vacancy in the college and professional ranks in the last few years after he joined the broadcast booth. This year, reports have suggested that Gruden may indeed be willing to re-join the sidelines as his time away from the game might make his coach relevancy less important. Gruden has a premiere job, siting alongside Mike Tirico on Monday Night Football, so are his competitive juices flowing so strongly that he could return to the NFL coaching ranks with the Cleveland Browns?
Superb beat writer Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer suggests this afternoon that the Browns might now be looking at Jon Gruden as a coaching possibility. Cleveland passed on the odds-on favorite to win the coaching job, Oregon’s Chip Kelly. While entertaining Kelly, the Browns lost out on Doug Marrone of Syracuse, a coach they interviewed twice, and eventually signed with the Buffalo Bills.
