So Jon Gruden is supposedly in talks to become the next head coach for a down-on-its-luck football team?
Haven’t we heard this story before? Many, many times?
Since he left coaching and went into broadcasting in 2009, Gruden has been the subject of such rumors concerning teams with coaching vacancies or teams whose fans want them to have coaching vacancies.
But the latest one out there is pretty interesting. CBSChicago.com senior columnist and WSCR radio host Dan Bernstein tweeted Tuesday that Hub Arkush of Pro Football Weekly had mentioned on air that Gruden, currently an analyst for ESPN's "Monday Night Football," is in talks with the Oakland Raiders to return as their head coach.
That's the same Oakland Raiders that allowed Gruden to go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (and were highly compensated for the move) after leading the team to a 40-28 record and an AFC championship appearance in four seasons.
