I just don't see Gruden coaching in college. He's got a sweet, stress-free gig with ESPN that pays him (what I heard, could be wrong) $6.3 million a year and he could get an NFL HC job whenever he damn well pleases. While coaching in the NFL is stressful, coaching in college is a different beast.
I could be wrong though. Auburn won't get him, but I'd sure love to have him. Hell of a coach.
Huddles are for rookies.
He grew up in & around South Bend. His dad was a long time assistant at ND. Gruden actually said that the ND fight song was playing in his head when he lost his virginity. True story look it up.
What is so great about Gruden he won with Dungy's players then his teams slowly got worse and worse...I just dunno the fascination with Chucky
Having only 1.8m sitting around equals flat broke in major college athletics. Most well funded departments have upwards of 50m on hand. You might want to get a clue before you call someone "dumb as sheet rock," moron.
It's fsufsu...It's hard for him to type sentences minus opposable thumbs
I wish I was the equivalent of flat broke in major college athletics. Having only 1.8 million dollars would be rough but I think I could manage.
Their athletic dept ran a $4 mil deficit in their fiscal 2011/12 according to ESPN and one of their biggest boosters can't give money to football anymore since he owns an NFL team.
What do I know or you or anyone? We're dumb as sheet rock.
Tennessee is broke????? But they have one of the highest recruiting budgets in the nation.... They also give 5 million to the academic side.... They just upgraded a one of their training center....
Yeah they are broke... And if anyone thinks the Haslam's won't be involved because they bought the Browns...... Geezzzzz

He wanted to learn the spread and Chip offered him the OC job but he declined. Could he take Oregon;'s HC job and leave the staff in place when Chip goes pro? Helfrich can run the same offense as Gruden learns it and oversees the team?
They can't give money to football. The Texans owner is a SCar alum, he can't either.
Grudens name will def be linked to the Eagles job when Reid is fired. He was the OC there before he got the Raiders job. Dunno if it is a real possibility though
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Um.... What... so I guess Jerry Jones doesn't give money to Arkansas either.... And there is more than one Haslam... His brother is the gov and their dad isn't poor either...
Gruden, Stoops, Jimbo, Strong, Greg Roman, in that order. $ won't be a detriment to the hire, regardless who it is (for reason OA mentioned). IMO, we miss on the top three and land Strong.
At Arkansas we have heard that money won't be a determining factor either, but you know what? It always will be. No matter if a school has 100 million to spend on a coach or 1 million. When you get down to it, there are the factor of is this coach worth it? Will we see a return on this? ect...
I know good and well that Arkansas will not get Gruden, and that while Tennessee has a better shot, that y'all probably won't either. If we get lucky, we will probably end up with Gundy, Patterson, or Franklin. If our luck really goes to shit and we miss on all of them, then we will end up with Strong, or a lower tier coach like that.

He has too much Northern in him.
Read what you responded to one more time. The Texans owner gives plenty of money to our university.
I admitted that I was wrong and was just guessing. I knew that he had some sort of ties to South Bend. I guess that I wasn't completely wrong going by the Notre Dame fight song playing when he lost his virginity. He still turned down that job before they hired Kelly.
Chucky will be the next coach of the iggles, Barring a New Years miracle.

I'm not so sure that he's ready to leave the job he has. I figure that most coaches always have that coaching itch, but you would have thought he would have already jumped if the itch was that bad to get back in the game. Not sure he would be so excited to jump for that job, even though it's a damn good one, to replace his good buddy Andy Reid. I could be completely wrong and don't know what goes on behind the scenes with those two, but I do know that they are good friends.
Pretty confident that is the job he wants
