Jon Gruden is going to be the next coach of the Tennessee Vols! Or maybe the New York Jets! Or maybe the Arkansas Razorbacks! At this point, it’s hard to tell what Jon Gruden rumors to believe but that doesn’t mean you can’t sit back and enjoy the frenzy.
Saying that Gruden is going to end up in Tennessee or Arkansas or anywhere else is a little premature at the moment. Gruden is currently gainfully employed at ESPN. Rumors are circulating that the former coach is going to leave his position on Monday Night Football to head back to the sidelines but nothing is official yet.
According to Pro Football Talk, a portion of a discussion on ESPN was edited out this week because it stated that Gruden would soon be leaving the network.
In the edited out segment, Peter King of Sports Illustrated said:
“I think at some point Jon Gruden definitely will go back to a sideline. I think your bosses at ESPN would be miffed, to put it mildly, if that happened this year, for a very simple reason: They dumped Jaws out of the booth to give the booth totally to Gruden.”
The Jon Gruden rumors have also inspired a few fans to make videos for their potential coach.
Here’ s a group of kids at Arkansas attempting to serenade Gruden into taking the coaching job with the Razorbacks.
Tennessee fans created this fake movie trailer about Jon Gruden’s triumphant return to the Vols.
