Each time a coaching vacancy arises in either the NFL or college ranks, one of the first names associated with the opening is ESPN’s Jon Gruden. Gruden admitted this year that he would be willing to interview with any NFL that was interested, but currently, his brother Jay is fielding more calls from NFL teams than he is. So, is any team interested in hiring Jon Gruden this year?
There were two possible landing spots I thought that Gruden would wind up at. Dallas and San Diego. Dallas because of the high profile team, it’s one of the highest profile coaching jobs in professional sports. When Jerry Jones took to the airwaves days after the season ended and proclaimed changes were coming, I figured Jones would go after Gruden. Instead he fired Rob Ryan.
