ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Colts owner Jim Irsay attempted to hire ESPN analyst Jon Gruden.
There have been rumors since the end of the season Irsay was pursuing Gruden as coach and Peyton Manning as general manager. It looks like at least half of those rumors were true, but Gruden turned down the advances and will stick to TV. Gruden's rebuff could be the end of the Colts' quest to replace coach Chuck Pagano and GM Ryan Grigson, but no one will know for sure until Irsay makes an announcement. Jan 14 - 10:56 AM

NBC Indianapolis' Bob Kravitz believes the Colts have reached out to ESPN analyst Jon Gruden about coaching the team.

Kravitz also believes owner Jim Irsay has touched base with Peyton Manning about overseeing the team in a John Elway-type role as the GM and top executive. These rumors have been swirling since the end of the season and will continue until Irsay publicly commits to coach Chuck Pagano and GM Ryan Grigson, something he's yet to do. Gruden has said he won't return to coaching unless it's the right situation with a quarterback. The Colts would fit that bill. At the end of the day, these are just unconfirmed rumors unlikely to develop into reality.

Appearing on Mike and Mike Wednesday morning, ESPN analyst Jon Gruden said, "Right now, I have no intentions of coaching."

"I love football," Gruden said, "but I'm very happy doing what I'm doing." Gruden, 53, wasn't very convincing in the interview, but for now, we'll have to take his word on it. There is one more Monday Night Football game this season, so maybe things could heat up on the Gruden coaching front after that. Gruden is said to be a "focal point" of the Rams' list of head-coach candidates.

Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson reports ESPN analyst Jon Gruden "has become a focal point" on the Rams' list of head-coaching candidates.

Per Robinson, the Rams are "moving toward a meeting" with Gruden, and Gruden would be "inclined to listen" if the Rams grant him authority over personnel. There's already a built-in connection, as Rams COO Kevin Demoff worked with Gruden in Tampa Bay. Gruden also reportedly "believes in" Jared Goff, and thinks he has "the stuff to be a franchise quarterback." Gruden hasn't coached in eight years. There would be some worry that the game has passed him by, though it's important to note how close he's remained to the sport as the Monday Night Football analyst, in addition to his annual QB camps on ESPN with draft-eligible passers. Gruden would qualify as a "splash hire" the Rams are aiming for in L.A.

The Los Angeles Times' Sam Farmer reports "those close" to ESPN analyst Jon Gruden "indicated he would listen" to a Rams pitch on their head-coaching job.

Early indications are the Rams are going to swing for the fences in their coaching search. Owner Stan Kroenke has extremely deep pockets and needs to sell PSLs to help pay for the new mega-stadium he's building in Inglewood. Gruden has been out of the game since being fired by the Bucs after the 2008 season. He already reportedly makes $7-8 million at ESPN, and has turned down several coaching interviews in recent years. Farmer also mentions Jim Harbaugh, Josh McDaniels, Kyle Shanahan, Jim Mora Jr., Norv Turner, and Mike Martz in his story.

A league source tells Philly.com that ESPN analyst Jon Gruden has expressed interest in the Eagles' head-coaching vacancy.

It's a juicy rumor, but Gruden himself has told FOX Philadelphia's Howard Eskin he's "not interested." Of course, even direct denials can't be taken at face value while the coaching carousel is spinning. Gruden rumors are an annual phenomenon, but he's never seemed truly close to leaving his friendly perch opposite Mike Tirico in the Monday Night Football booth. Frankly, that's where Gruden belongs at this point. He's been out of coaching since 2009, and is an excellent announcer.

ESPN announced a contract extension with Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden through the 2021 season.

That takes 51-year-old Gruden off the coaching radar for at least the 2015 season. Contracts are often broken, so we can't rule out a return to the sidelines for Chucky in the near future, but it's looking doubtful. Gruden seems content calling Monday night games with play-by-play man Mike Tirico, and Gruden has been a pleasant surprise in the booth. It's a good keep for ESPN.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reports a "pre-requisite" for ESPN's Jon Gruden to return to coaching would be a "franchise quarterback."

Per Breer, Gruden "really likes" Oakland's Derek Carr. Chucky is rumored to be atop the Raiders' wish list for a new head coach, but Gruden rumors have been an annual tradition with no pay off. At this point, Gruden is so comfortable — and good — in the broadcast booth we have a hard time believing he'd depart for a reunion with a team that's the biggest circus in all of football. Stranger things have happened, of course.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Raiders' first look for their new head coach will be Jon Gruden.

Gruden, the former Raiders head coach and current Monday Night Football color analyst, has been connected to a homecoming ever since leaving the Bucs in 2008. It's obvious he'd be the first choice for close friend and owner Mark Davis. However, there's a lot of doubt if this is the right time for Gruden to go back to Oakland. GM Reggie McKenzie has put together one of the worst teams in the NFL by trading for guys like Matt Flynn/Matt Schaub, drafting guys like D.J. Hayden/Menelik Watson and blowing cap space on washed-up veterans like Maurice Jones-Drew. No coach could make it work with this roster -- not even Spider 2 Y Banana.

Monday Night Football color analyst Jon Gruden reiterated Monday he has no intention of leaving ESPN.

Five NFL head-coaching vacancies have surfaced on "Black Monday," but Gruden wants no part of it. "I don't want to be considered for any of these jobs," said Gruden, who hasn't coached since 2008. "I don't want to be considered for anything. There are plenty of good candidates out there. I'm just sick for the guys who can no longer coach their teams. ... I'm hoping to do the best I can to hang on to my job." Gruden, 50, spent 11 years in the NFL as a head coach, compiling a 95-81 record with one Super Bowl ring.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 04:05:00 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on Sunday Countdown that ESPN Monday Night Football color analyst Jon Gruden will not coach in the NFL in 2014.

Gruden recently signed a new contract with ESPN, and Mort reported the old Bucs head coach has a "strong commitment" to Monday Night Football for at least one more season. Gruden turned 50 years old in August. ESPN's John Clayton had recently mentioned Gruden as a possibility for the Texans' head-coaching vacancy, but that story was more speculative than hard reporting.
