Former Eagles Assistant Jon Gruden May Be Back in Coaching

Former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Jon Gruden is rumored to be headed to the college ranks as a candidate to be the next head coach at Miami, according to a report by ESPN.

Gruden was the Eagles offensive coordinator from 1995 to 1997 before taking head coaching jobs with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders.  Gruden, now a broadcaster on ESPN’s Monday Night Football, was 95-81 overall in his NFL head coaching career and won t he Super Bowl with Tampa Bay after going 12-4 in 2002.

Gruden has not coached at the college level since 1989, when he was a wide receivers coach at the University of Pacific.  Gruden previously coached quarterbacks at Southeast Missouri State in 1988 after spending two seasons as a graduate assistant at the University of Tenesssee.

The Miami Hurricanes fired Randy Shannon on Saturday after losing to South Florida in the last game of their regular season.  Miami is 7-5 and went 28-22 in four seasons under Shannon.
