Jon Gruden, former Super Bowl winning head football coach and perhaps the best or most widely known, color analyst in all of big-time sports broadcasting has once again declined interest in an NFL or college football coaching job. This is about the 60th time in the last five years.
According to multiple reports Gruden had interest in the Los Angeles Rams head coaching vacancy.
It seemed like a match made in heaven. Gruden in Los Angeles, man.
It’s beautiful click-bait. It’s a wonderful December story. It heats up the interwebs, but never, ever, has substance.
Jon Gruden said on ESPN radio’s Mike and Mike Tuesday he has no intention of coaching right now.
I love football, I’ve said that a million times, and I just want to say that I’m very happy doing what I’m doing,” Gruden said via Yahoo Sports.
“There’s a lot of chips on the table but right now I have no intentions of coaching. I really enjoy what I’m doing. I feel like I’m close to the fire. I’m getting plenty of satisfaction out of doing what I’m doing.”
What Gruden is telling us is that coaching the Los Angeles Rams is not better than broadcasting Monday Night Football with unfettered access to any NFL team and no loyalties to play or work for except for the boys in Bristol, CT who are quite thrilled with anything Gruden.
No Jon Gruden is not leaving Monday Night Football to coach your 4-10 football team.
