Jon Gruden wants to put the headsets back on.
During a recent interview with host Bryant Gumbel on HBO's "Real Sports,'' Gruden discussed his future and said he has rejected several opportunities to coach again, both on the pro and college level.
Gruden said. "I'm trying to figure out where I'm going. If the right opportunity presents itself, I will come back.''
Well because of how impatient some franchises are when it comes to a coach's chances at turning the team around, there will be more than a few potential opportunities available in the 2013 offseason.
Fans and owners want someone that will win now—or at least someone who provides that more emphatically than the incumbent—and Gruden is just the man for the job.
Patience may be a virtue, but not when a guy like Gruden still has the itch to coach.
