Jon Gruden’s name has been thrown around in recent weeks as a potential replacement for Tennessee head coach Butch Jones. However, it remains to be seen if he would even return to the coaching profession as he’s spoken on it a few times. Ahead of the Denver-Kansas City matchup on Monday Night Football, he spoke with DenverBroncos.com and didn’t exactly rule out a return to coaching:
The important part comes in the last bit of that video as he basically says anything is possible. Here was his response when asked if might coach again:
“I draw plays every day. Who knows what life will bring? I haven’t lost a game in a few years, though, so I’ve got that going for me. You never know. We’ll see what happens.”
That’s going to have Tennessee fans drooling as they desperately want Jones to get replaced and Gruden would be their first option. He’s been sighted in Knoxville recently and the Grumor mill has been churning in earnest since.
