Let The Tire Kicking Begin!
Gruden has expressed interest in the Texas Longhorns.
I would NEVER have guessed that Gruden would float his name out for the opening in Austin. It seems the original source (link) is orangebloods.
For the the sake of entertainment, I think Gruden would be a better hire than any realistic candidate we have (I'm excluding current pro coaches). The Longhorn Network would love him for sure. He talks about Austin and the program in a positive manner. I think his oldest son (Jon Gruden II, or Deuce) is starting college soon. Can you tell me that Gruden couldn't make it as a recruiter? It's not as if the guy has a hard time selling himself. He did interview with USC AD Pat Hayden who says Gruden will only coach in the NFL, but he's probably just saving face after an unsuccessful attempt to hire the Chuckster.
