Jon Gruden: “I Have No Intention Of Coaching”

Hollywood loves a good comeback story and no coaching comeback would be more captivating than Jon Gruden returning to the sidelines for the Rams. He is reportedly the “focal point” of the Rams’ search, but for his part, Gruden claims that he isn’t interested in coaching right now.

I’ve said it a million times. I’m very happy with what I’m doing. I have no intention of coaching,” Gruden said in an interview with ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike (video link).

Gruden added that he still feels “close to the fire” as the color commentator for Monday Night Football. Of course, his comments should be taken with a grain of kosher salt. It’s hard to imagine that there isn’t a big part of Gruden that wants to try and win another Super Bowl. With the Rams, Gruden would have several intriguing pieces to work with, including running back Todd Gurley, No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff, defensive end Robert Quinn, and defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

If the Rams want to land Gruden, they may have to give him final say over personnel. Reportedly, Los Angeles is open to granting that power to their next head coach.

    You all are fools! Jon Gruden is the best nfl tv analysis and teamed up with Tirico they are the only two I don’t have to watch the game on mute. They are insightful and they actually talk positively and give credit where credit is due. If anything I’d start the petition to get Aikman and Buck off the air, anyone with me?

      I definitely agree. Aikman and Buck are horrible. Always show favoritism

    If he doesn’t take this, he’s never going to come back. The rams would give him the world. I honestly believe he doesn’t want to coach again if he turns down the rams
