Gruden returning to coaching?

Posted on: December 26, 2011 11:50 pm
 
Jon Gruden is leaning towards returning to coaching, two sources close to the situation confirmed to me.

The San Diego Union-Tribune first reported that Gruden had decided to return to coaching next season.

However, two sources said late Monday night that while Gruden is indeed leaning towards returning, it's not certain. But some of this might be semantics. I'm told Gruden wants to see what positions he could possibly get before making a 100 percent final decision and that he hasn't officially made one yet because of the uncertainty.

(I was also told Gruden didn't expect this news to get out so soon.)

But again, semantics. He wants to come back. That's the important part of this story. And while I fully expect Gruden to issue a statement with some sort of non-denial/denial saying he's happy at ESPN, he's eyeing a return.

Gruden wants to coach again as soon as possible. That part is fact.

"He's ready to leave television," said one source, "but only if the right job is out there."

And that job, as the Union-Tribune reported, could be the St. Louis Rams.

When Dallas loses to the Giants this week Garret will be canned and Gruden can pick up a team that is loaded with talent and can win (maybe not the SB) right away.

I hope he gets back into coaching soon.  In fact, the sooner the better.  I have a hard time listening to him for more than a quarter, and while he's leaving, it would be nice if he would hire Collinsworth.  The night games would be much better if these two were on the field and out of the booth.

Gruden should return. When you have bums like Norv Turner, Raheim Morris and Jason Garrett, jobs will be wide open.
Gruden and Jeff Fisher are going to be hot names. I expect both to land plum jobs.
