There’s a new rumor floating around that Jon Gruden will be heading to the Dallas Cowboys next year. But you might now want to take that idea too seriously. A source close to the Cowboys called the new Jon Gruden rumors absolutely “ridiculous.”
According to the NFL Network, some believe that Gruden is Dallas bound because three former members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have also been added to the Cowboys’ coaching staff. Now, it’s only logical that Gruden will head down to Dallas to replace Jason Garrett.
But that might not happen.
ESPN’s Ed Werder wrote on Twitter: “Response from reliable team source when I asked if TB glory-days asst. coaches being hired in Dallas meant Gruden on way: Ridiculous.”
Gruden has been enjoying life on television recently but there have been several rumors about his return to football. In the last month, Gruden has been reportedly been close to signing deals with the Raiders, the Tennessee Vols, and now he’s apparently packing his bags for Texas.
ESPN’s Ron Jaworski said that Gruden could make a coaching comeback in 2013 but there are only a few jobs that he’s interested in.
“He’s had numerous meetings that he’s told teams he’s not interested in certain jobs. There are jobs he’s interested in, but no one at those teams has reached out to him, or they may even have a coach in place.”
What do you think of the Jon Gruden rumors?
