Browns To Make A Run At Jon Gruden?

The Browns are going to reload their coaching search with Chip Kelly out of the picture, and one name to keep in mind is former Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer today is reporting that Gruden is going to get a call from the Browns about the job.

Gruden, 49, is a native of Sandusky, Ohio, and played quarterback at the University of Dayton. He also has ties to Browns owner Jimmy Haslam from his time as a graduate assistant at Tennessee in 1985-86. His wife, Cindy, is a former University of Tennessee cheerleader.

Earlier this season, Haslam denied a report by WREG-TV in Memphis, Tenn., that he offered Gruden a stake in the Browns if he’d coach the Volunteers.

If Haslam decides to go after Gruden, he would have to lure him out of his comfortable seat in ESPN’s Monday Night Football booth and as an ESPN analyst. Gruden signed a five-year extension with ESPN in September and has said he loves his job. Friends say he’ll only leave the booth for the ideal situation.

    Just like the Chip Kelly deal was all but done. Report facts, not whatever you feel like, there is a name for that, Yellow Journalism.
