Yeah they are hiring the name. Nothing about Gruden makes sense for Tenner.

Gruden would fare about as well in college as Spurrier and Kelly did in the NFL IMO. He has made comments numerous times about his disdain for the NCAA rulebook. If they want to hire him, they better be prepared to open up the vault, also..
7 years for 71 million sounds like they did open the vault.

Hahahaha I honestly hope they hire Gruden. He is a complete unknown in the College Football world. I would much rather them spend $6M-$8M/year on him rather than a proven College Head Coach that I'm sure they can get.

Yes, this is for real.  Tennessee honestly thinks that they can get him to come be their coach.  In fairness, he does have several ties to the program and the area, plus his future at ESPN can't be as secure as it was a few years ago, given all the cuts and lay-offs.
they will, too.

The only chance UT has of landing Gruden is based on 1) the current culture at ESPN is a shell of itself former self (due to continued/still to come cutting of high contract labor), 2) Gruden’s rapport with Sean McDonough off camera is the equivalent of pudding skin compared to the relationship he had with Tirico, and 3) Gruden finally realizes NFL owners aren’t exactly lighting up his voicemail for job offers.

Highly unlikely unless previously mentioned 1 and 2 become unbearable and allow his ego to accept 3.

But will he have Dooley-style fashion on the sidelines?

As I reported earlier Jon Gruden did not meet today with John Currie and other boosters about the Tennessee job. As I also reported Tennessee might talk to Gruden in the future but I do not think he will take the UT  job. If he returns to coaching I think it will be in the NFL

Dream on, Tennessee, but Jon Gruden isn't Nick Saban


Quote
Scarblog: Said it before, but it bears repeating as the #Grumors reach critical mass. SEC football programs would be much better off if they would stop trying to hire another Nick Saban.

There's only one of those.

So here's a little friendly advice for our neighbors to the north whose favorite color is dreamsicle orange. Dream on, Vols for Life, but if your Jon Gruden fantasy were to happen, he wouldn't be even a reasonable facsimile.

Look at the SEC coaches who've beaten Saban since he got things rolling in his second season in Tuscaloosa: Urban Meyer, Steve Spurrier, Les Miles, Gene Chizik, Kevin Sumlin, Gus Malzahn and Hugh Freeze.

Only Spurrier had NFL head coaching experience, as weak as it was, on his resume. With the exception of Meyer's relentless intensity, none of them bears much resemblance to the Alabama coach. With the exception of Malzahn and Sumlin, none of them still works in the SEC.

Spurrier throwing out coaching search hints to the Gator Nation doesn't count as work.

The truth about Jon Gruden and Tennessee coaching search

Quote
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The Jon Gruden-to-Tennessee “Grumors” are in full effect. Reporters are fruitlessly staking out airports. Bloggers are looking to out-sensationalize one another.

Don’t kill the messenger, Vols fans, but it’s extremely unlikely that Gruden is coming to Rocky Top.

“I can’t see it happening,” a prominent booster told SEC Country on Thursday.

“I don’t think Jon Gruden is coming,” a Tennessee football staff member said later in the day.

But Gruden recently said “never say never to nothing” in regard to a possible return to coaching, and that is all the hope some Vols’ fans need.

Having done this for 30 years, I've never seen anything rise to this level of lunacy with all the Gruden stuff. Not even close.

Was Jon Gruden in Knoxville Saturday or wasn't he? 'Grumors' continue to swirl


Quote
Jon Gruden might have been in Knoxville, Tennessee, on Saturday, but then maybe he might not have been.

With Tennessee's football coaching job officially open, the last few days have been a peak time for #Grumors. The former NFL coach -- and current NFL analyst -- may or may not have been spotted dining with former Volunteers quarterback Peyton Manning at Calhoun's, a popular area restaurant.




 bill hofheimer @bhofheimer_espn

For all those wondering, Jon Gruden is actually 2,500 miles away from Calhoun's ... in Seattle prepping for #MNF. Production mtgs w/ the Seahawks this afternoon. https://twitter.com/calhouns/status/932050993788936192

Gruden was a pro coach, and he has no interest in coaching again.  He's making good money at football telecasts and isn't leaving.
