Hide your kids, Chucky may be coming to an SEC sideline near you.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that both Arkansas and Tennessee have ex-Bucs coach and current ESPN analyst Jon Gruden at the top of their wish lists for their pending head coaching vacancies. We have heard Gruden’s name come up frequently in connection with coaching vacancies at both the NFL and college level in recent years, but La Canfora is reporting that Gruden has actually had exploratory conversations with potential assistant coaches this time around.
Who knows though. Derek Dooley didn’t win much on the field, but he had some pretty decent recruiting classes and Tennessee has enough talent coming through the pipeline to return to relevancy pretty quickly. If Gruden does take the job and win, we all know it wouldn’t be the first time that Gruden swooped in and reaped the profits of another coach’s labor.
