The ‘Jon Gruden to Tennessee’ rumor has the Tennessee message boards on fire, and even though Colin has said he doesn’t think Gruden is likely to leave his lucrative TV gig and relaxed work schedule to the grind of dealing with recruits and boosters 365 days a year, that hasn’t stopped Vols fans from putting on their tin foil hats and convincing themselves this all ends up with Jon Gruden in Knoxville.
Gruden did his part to to fan the flames during a Seattle radio interview when asked when he would arrive in Seattle to call the Seahawks/Falcons Monday night game. He said he would be getting in after stopping in Knoxville first. He also mentioned how much he loves ‘Rocky Top.’ I’m telling you what, man.
This may be nothing, but for the thirsty black helicopter crowd that just suffered through Butch Jones, it’s surely another definite sign that Gruden to Tennessee is all but a done deal.
