Grudens won't be coaching in tampa while glazers are owners of the bucs
Maybe I am crazy, but judging by a few conversations I've had, I have a hunch that Gruden would come back to Tampa. In fact, I'd say that Jon would be more likely to take a spot here than Jay, and I believe Jon would come to Tampa at least as fast as he would anywhere else. This is of course contingent on a few assurances by ownership. That said, I don't think the Glazers would ever make the offer.
I remember the Kelly-spoke-to-Gruden reports/rumors but don’t remember if I just saw them here or if there were actual reports.
Head Coach of an NFL team? you're crazy if you think he says no. Kelly had options. Jay doesn't. At least not at the moment.
It doesn't seem like Jay Gruden agrees with your thinking:http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/01/22/jay-gruden-turns-down-the-colts/"Most coaches would jump at the chance to become an NFL head coach. Or, at a minimum, to gain experience interviewing for one of the 32 most coveted jobs in all of sports.Not Jay Gruden.Twice this month, the Bengals’ offensive coordinator has rejected an opportunity to be considered for a coaching job. First it was the Jaguars. Now, he has spurned an overture from the Colts, according to Charley Casserly of CBS."
That was two years ago. Probably didn't think he was ready at the time. Or maybe he just doesn't want that kind of pressure.
Yeah, I'm sure he had good reasons. I'm just saying, I think it's unlikely he'd feel pressured to take a head coaching job now that his resume is better when he was comfortable in passing up on opportunities a few years ago.
