Jon Gruden: ‘Don’t foresee myself coaching anytime soon’

Good news, Positively Gruden enthusiasts. Amid rumors that suggest otherwise, Gruden told’s Jenna Laine that he “did not foresee coaching any time soon,” while visiting the Buccaneers facility.

Gruden was fired by the Bucs in 2008 and has been in the Monday Night Football booth since 2009. He has also been batting down rumors of a return to coaching since well, 2009.

But just last week Gruden indicated to that a return to the sideline was imminent.

“I’m not in here every day at 4:30 or 4:00 in the morning watching pinball, you know? I’m preparing myself to come back. I am. Every day. I’m preparing to come back.”

As it stands there are no open coaching slots, and Gruden is busy preparing for ESPN’s Saints-Vikings game in Week 1.
