Jon Gruden has been a popular name at a variety of spots during coaching rumor season
during the last few seasons.
The current ESPN Monday Night Football analyst has not coached since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fired him in 2009. But, he’s
been thought of as a potential prime target for college programs looking to turn things around, although he still hasn’t
yet left his perch in the broadcast booth.
That doesn’t stop the rumors though, and this weekend, Gruden is in Knoxville, Tn., where the coaching situation
is currently, uh, tenuous. And the #Grumors have taken off.
It is worth noting that Gruden has a child attending Tennessee and also will be in Nashville for the Tennessee Titans on
Monday Night Football in a couple days. But then the former coach showed up at the Volunteers game Saturday against South
Carolina, and Tennessee Twitter went nuts.
