Found November 19, 2012 on The Sports Bank:
Wouldn’t it be great to get Jon Gruden out of broadcasting? Then we wouldn’t have to hear about how EVERY NFL player is the best at his position. Well maybe he’ll leave the booth for an SEC college football gig. Or Chucky will make his decision based on the winner of this weekend’s “fired bowl.” Derek Dooley is gone after three losing seasons at UT, and if the Vols fall to the Wildcats this weekend, it would be the first time since the turn of the century that Tenn would be winless in conference. Still a better gig than UK. Big Blue is a college basketball school through and through. Although Joker Phillips was the coolest name in coaching. It’d be a stretch for Lexington to land a guy who led both the Oakland Raiders and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Jon Gruden, Tennessee Would Be Perfect Match For Tyler Bray’s NFL Future, School’s Return to Prominence

If Jon Gruden wants to leave his cushy gig as a Monday Night Football analyst, he would be wise to move to the college game, rather than try his hand at a return to the NFL. The move from broadcast booth back to the sidelines isn’t a common one, and there’s a reason for that. It’s a hard transition. The best thing a coach can do is just keep working. The time and stress required...

College Football: Would Jon Gruden Be the Next ‘Nick Saban’?
