Rumors are still swirling regarding Jon Gruden and the Tennessee coaching job.

Jon Gruden's name seems to be brought up whenever a head coach is on the chopping block or there's a vacancy to fill, but this time, the rumors appear to be somewhat legit.

According to 247 Sports, Tennesee is "ramping up" their pursuit of Gruden, and you can read about it here (paywall).

So Tennessee is apparently pursuing Gruden, but we've yet to get a solid statement out of the former head coach on whether or not he wants to make a return to coaching. If anything, he's actively fanning the fire rather than dispelling the rumors, and it's apparently got some analysts in a frenzy.

Will Gruden end up in Knoxville? It's anyone's guess, but what we do known for certain is that Tennessee is making a run at him.
