It’s time for some Grumors.
Jon Gruden, who currently has a comfortable Monday Night Football gig with ESPN, hasn’t coached football since back in 2008 – when he was the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFL. But that hasn’t stopped the football world from speculating every year that he might return to the gridiron.
In fact, at the moment, he’s listed with the best odds to be Tennessee football’s next head coach at +250.
Bet Online currently lists a number of candidates, including Gruden, Bobby Petrino, Les Miles, Brian Kelly, Lane Kiffin & more.

Gruden has never been a head coach in college, so it’s hard to see this turning into reality. But you never know – he might want a shot at dethroning Nick Saban in the SEC.
