Jon Gruden is a Super Bowl winning coach, color analyst for ESPN's Monday Night Football and host of Jon Gruden's QB Camp.
He is also the hottest name in the world of college football as schools start thinking about next year and who should be their head coach instead of the current guy.
Before you believe Gruden is coming to your school, you should still your anxious beating heart and realistically consider why he is not going to be the guy at your school.
Reality can be hard, but it can also help you not be let down when your athletic director does hire the coach that is going to lead your team to the promised land.
Why is Gruden not coming your way this fall? Here are a few reasons:
-His ESPN contract runs through 2016. Yes, contracts in sports are meaningless, but think about how much less pressure there is each week compared to being a head coach. No misguided freshman is going to get you fired.
-The competition for his services are Eagles, Cowboys and Panthers. Not Longhorns, Razorbacks and Tigers, Gruden is an NFL guy.
-Would Gruden really want to hit the recruiting trail? Bet he would be great in a recruits home, but for a guy that is use to drafting his talent and acquiring it through free agency, that is asking quite a bit.
So, which SEC schools will he not be on the sidelines for next fall?
