Apparently Arkansas offered Gruden (lulz) and he obviously said no.
Word is that Tennessee boosters have put together an offer that is "mind blowing."
(via the twitters)
Spider 3 Y Banana?
If Tennessee lands Gruden, good for them. Can't see anyway that he is not a homerun hire. Kids would love to play for Chucky, and obviously he can coach some football.
That being said. I believe he will go to Tennessee like he was going to ND, Michigan, tOSU, UCLA, and every other job opening the last 5 years.
I say bullshit.
If he goes to a college team it will be Tennessee. With that said, he's not going to a college team.
Don't forget he was a to Miami.
If and when he takes the Tennessee job, the Vols will become the toughest team in the SEC inside two years and Chucky will be in charge of the biggest cfb dynasty ever. Just saying...
I've heard Tennessee is broke. Well, not broke but funds are limited and big money boosters are drying up. Gonna have to pay Dooleys buyout plus huge money to a knew coach. Should be interesting.
Don't see Gruden taking a college job if he turned down his alma mater when they offered him before they got Brian Kelly. I could be wrong but I'll believe it when I see it. I still think Charlie Strong or James Franklin makes more sense for Tennessee.
You're dumb as sheet rock. They had 1.8 mill sitting around and the university just said they dont have to hit them up with 6 mil for each of the next three years. Most schools who make cash donate to the school, Tennessee had to do so contracturally. Chancellor said that's waived for the next three years to give them 6 mill extra for each of the next three years.
And all that is before the boosters get hot and bothered. Bill Haslam pulls out his roledex, makes 5 calls and the Vols have 5 mill a year easy to give an HC.
Pretty sure that Gruden went to Notre Dame didn't he? I know that Notre Dame went after Urban Meyer and Gruden before they offered Kelly.

Steve Spurrier is a God, and Mark Richt worships him
Meh. Nobody knows a dang thing right now.
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
Gruden graduated from Dayton.
Gruden is currently coaching about 30 CFB programs and 15 NFL teams after all the rumors I've heard. He's like Slash, I'm not sure if he's real.
Well it's not the first time I've been wrong and certainly won't be the last. Thanks for the info though. Could have sworn he went to Notre Dame. Learn something new everyday.
Heard grudens wife is from Tennessee ... idk
She was a cheerleader at UT when he was a graduate assistant there. This will be the third time in the past 4 years that Gruden was/is our next coach. I'd be thrilled if it happens, but I'm skeptical until I hear it from a legitimate source, and right now, no one legitimate is talking.
I don't think you can do much better than what Saban is doing...Gruden is a decent coach...but not THAT great.
Why are you calling me names?
Neat. Too bad for you guys, the Pigs are well below Chucky. I suspect Tennessee is as well.
Why you always gotta be a dick?
I was wondering the same thing. You didn't even say anything definitively, just said you heard they were broke.
Nova made him mad again?
Gruden's just waiting to see what Chip Kelly does. If CK goes to the NFL, Gruden's all Oregon. Lol. Seriously though, I could see him looking at Oregon if CK does decide to leave which he is, but nobody knows when. I could also see Gruden going to USC if LK gets the boot which he will sometime soon.
