    Gruden thinking of returning to coaching

    Report: Jon Gruden eyeing a return to coaching Nov 8 11/8/2012 10:50:18 AM

    Former Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden might be eyeing a return to coaching, Charlie Campbell of Walterfootball reports. Sources around him have shared that he is looking into different assistant coaches around the league and seeing what their potential availability will be after the 2012 season.

    Assistant coaches mentioned are fired Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo and special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia.

    Sources have said that Gruden's return to coaching is dependent on it being a perfect situation. He isn't interested in smaller-market teams like those he has coached at previously. Gruden wants a big-market team with good ownership and some talent on the roster. Thus, teams like Dallas, Philadelphia and the New York Jets could be potential landing spots if they make a change.

    Dont care where he goes, as long as it gets him off Monday Night Football, I will be thrilled.

    However the thought of him coming here just to lure his brother to run the offense, would be tempting.

    Interesting. Can't see Gruden going to Dallas, where he'd be under the thumb of a tyrant like JJ.

    If it came down to a choice between Philly and the Jets, I'd choose Philly if I was him. Gruden's an offensive guy, and they're loaded with talent at the skill positions. Plus he's got a guy in Foles that he can groom if he likes him.

    Certainly wouldn't object to him coming here, but Rex has a chance to save his job with a strong 2nd half. As disappointed as I've been with him over the last two seasons, I don't think he gets fired if the team is at least 7-9.

    I am just very impressed with what Jay Gruden has been able to do in Cincy.

    "these New York Jets...and this Mark Sanchez...."

    I'm about done with Rex. He's reached Herm status with me. Would have no problem with Gruden coming in, but Tanny must go back to his calculator and leave GMing to a non-boob, or its all for naught.

    Thaaats right. Naught.

    Absolutely agree, not like the Bengals are loaded with All-Pro talent.

    The jets need a football exec running the show first. Get a guy who can evaluate talent and let him decide whether Rex stays or goes. It's obvious that Tanny can't do it.

    Talk about overrated.

    After 4 years in Oakland Gruden managed a 1-2 playoff record.

    He won a SB with Tampa Bay's Dungy-built defense his first year in '02 and couldn't win a Wildcard his remaining 6 years.

    what makes you think John Gruden can run a team? I'm skeptical of his ability to judge talent. I wouldn't mind him as a head coach though

    No thanks...

    Truly think Rex is the better coach.

    Outside of that, no coach has ever won a super bowl with two different teams so there is no reason to believe that Gruden will stop that.

    He's going back to philthy(he's the former qb coach or RB coach or OC); gonna grow a great big offensive line to get away from that undersized cutting line that went out of business 15 years ago.

    Once he has his behemoths then he will get hard working - oh wait he's got maclin and the other guy...

    The 2000-2002 Raiders ran that WCO behind a great big line of Lincoln Kennedy and Barrett Robbins.

    That's what he'll tell ownership.

    I do not think Gruden will take a job without a qb in place. That was his problem in Tampa. I could see him liking San Diego as he loves phillip rivers.

    Looks like there might be some good jobs that will be open. If open, the Jets is not a "good job".
