Jon Gruden: Odds He Could Return to Each Team with a Tenuous Coaching Situation

The Black Eyed Peas famously asked "Where is the love?"  If the soon-to-be Super Bowl halftime show group are still searching for answers however, perhaps they should look no further than the NFL's bright stage.

When it comes to coaching sensations, many names grace the golden pages.  Tony Dungy, Bill Cowher, Tom Landry and of course the most recognized man to ever wear a hat—Vince Lombardi, are well noted front men throughout the leagues prevalent history.

But when it comes to the forgotten about yet well respected men of years past, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden pops into mind.

While resumes aren't overly important in the NFL, Gruden's coaching career certainly qualifies as one of the best.  As a player Gruden was nothing much to look at, playing for Muskingan College and the University of Dayton but as a coach though?  Well, that's a totally differently story.

Just for the record Gruden has served for nine different professional football teams, in a span that ranges well over 20 years.  Call him the golden haired boy if you will, Gruden may not be compared to Bill Belichick anytime soon, but he does have the credentials to satisfy any team looking for a new head coach in 2011.

So what are the chances Gruden returns to the Motorola headset and stocks up on a year's supply  of chewing gum?

Some say he is comfortable behind a desk calling Monday Night Football.

Call him crazy though, because it is not as doubtful as you may think.  Therefore, here's a look at several NFL teams who may consider Jon Gruden, along with a short summary on what the former Tampa Bay Buccaneer would bring to each franchise.
