NFL Trade Rumors:
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that ESPN broadcaster Jon Gruden has “no interviews scheduled” for any of the head coaching positions that are currently available.
Rapoport adds that there’s no indication that Gruden is even preparing to meet with anyone, so it’s fairly likely that he’ll be returning to the booth for another season.
The Eagles and Chargers have been mentioned as possible landing spots for Gruden, but you have to wonder whether or not returning to the NFL as a head coach is something that he really wants. Gruden has a great job that pays him well and keeps him close to the game, without the extreme pressure that comes from running a team. Several franchises have offered him good money in the past, but even that hasn’t been enough to persuade him to leave the booth.
I’m sure we’ll hear more about this topic in the coming days and probably at this time next year.

The NFL coaching carousel took full effect on Monday as seven coaches were hit with the axe, meaning there will be at least seven fresh faces guiding teams next fall.

Mediocrity is not something that sits well with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and in recent years, he’s seen plenty of it from his team on the field. In fact since the Cowboys last Super Bowl win in 1995, Dallas has posted a tepid 141-140 overall record. Dallas finished the 2012 season at 8-8, while a .500 record would have been welcome in say, Jacksonville this season, another...

When NFL coaching jobs open, the names Jon Gruden, Bill Cowher and Tony Dungy immediately surface as potential candidates.
Much more likely than any of those Super Bowl winners returning to the sideline for 2013 would be the hirings of more obscure assistant coaches such as Mike Zimmer, Mike McCoy and Gus Bradley.
And Jon Gruden's brother, Jay.
Sure, some of the best-known...
