Former Tampa Bay head coach Jon Gruden will replace Tony Kornheiser in the Monday Night Football booth in 2009. Gruden, who coached the Bucs from 2002-08, will call Monday Night Football games with play-by-play man Mike Tirico and analyst Ron Jaworski.
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden was fired in January, but it didn’t take him too long to find another job.

Gruden, who coached the Bucs from 2002-08, winning three division titles and Super Bowl XXXVII, will replace Tony Kornheiser in the Monday Night Football booth in 2009.

Gruden, who is Tampa Bay’s all-time winningest coach with a 60-57 record, joins ESPN’s Monday Night Football team of play-by-play man Mike Tirico and analyst Ron Jaworski, starting in September.

"This is a tremendous opportunity and I am very excited to be associated with ESPN and Monday Night Football," Gruden said in a statement released by ESPN. "I grew up a fan of Monday Night Football, and whether I've coached on Monday night or watched, I've hardly missed a game all these years.

"To join Mike and Jaws in the booth and to work alongside this top-notch team is going to be a real thrill."

This isn’t Gruden’s first television gig. He served as a guest analyst on the NFL Network during the Combine and 2009 NFL Draft earlier this year.
