Gruden reportedly wants back in
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
We saw a report earlier today from NFL writer Gregg Rosenthal that ESPN's Jon Gruden wants to get back into coaching.
In itself, that should not come as a major surprise to anyone. Gruden is only 49 and his name always seems to come up with numerous high profile jobs each off season. This season will be no different.
Rosenthal goes on to explain that he has heard from his source (Charlie Campbell of WalterFootball.com) that Gruden has already reached out to a few assistants, including former Eagles defensive coordinator and offensive line coach Juan Castillo and Chargers specials teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, about their potential availability after the season wraps up.
Take it for what it's worth, but Rosenthal says Campbell has been pretty accurate when it comes to NFL movement, and notes that Gruden is waiting for the perfect opportunity in a large media market, otherwise he's more than happy at ESPN and as president of the FFCA (Fired Football Coaches Association).
