The “Jon Gruden to The U” rumors are gaining some substantial credibility Wednesday. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Gruden is meeting with Miami athletic director Kiry Hocutt.

A small caveat, though: If Gruden were traveling to Miami to meet with Hocutt, we could assume the former Bucs coach is interested in the job. But Hocutt is traveling to Tampa to meet Gruden at his home. Hocutt’s mission is to gauge Gruden’s level of interest.

Word is that level of interest was originally zero but has since changed. Two members of Miami’s board of trustees have said Gruden is the school’s top choice.

It’s hard to picture Gruden leaving the NFL for the college route. Most professional head coaches who go the amateur route are not former Super Bowl champions. In college, Gruden would have restrictions placed on practice time. He’d also have to worry about recruiting and classroom issues. Those who know him believe all that is far less appealing than the freedoms of the NFL.

UPDATE 11:10 a.m. ET: The website SportsbyBrooks tweeted that, "UM may be wishful thinking, but Gruden told a source his next job will be college."

Report: Gruden meeting with Miami Wednesday

So the other day I read that there is "No way he was going to start coaching again let alone in college", so if that was true why this story?  If he's not interested then why meet with them?  If he's interested then why come out with the statement back on Monday?  Pick a path and walk down it Jon, but don't play these media games and come out looking like a jerk!
