The Jon Gruden rumors won't officially end until the 2013 season kicks off. The latest rumor has fans wondering if Gruden will be headed to the Dallas Cowboys, especially since a lot of familiar faces are now on board in Big D.
Three coaches from Gruden's former staff on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been added to the Dallas Cowboys current staff, making fans in Dallas wonder if current head coach Jason Garrett may be on his way out and Gruden on his way in.
Dallas' new three coaches, Monte Kiffin (defensive coordinator), Rod Marinelli (defensive line coach) and Rich Bisaccia (special teams coach) all have had success under Gruden, but it doesn't look like Gruden will be taking Jason Garrett's spot as head coach - at least not any time soon.
According to a tweet by ESPN's Ed Werder, it's not happening.
Werder tweeted earlier today, Jan. 27,"Response from reliable team source when I asked if TB glory-days asst. coaches being hired in Dallas meant Gruden on way: "Ridiculous."
Gruden has said he has no interest in coaching this season, but he has talked to different teams as confirmed by Gruden's fellow co-worker at ESPN Ron Jaworski.
"He's had numerous meetings that he's told teams he's not interested in certain jobs," Jaworski said. "There are jobs he's interested in, but no one at those teams has reached out to him, or they may even have a coach in place."
If Gruden did decide to come back in 2013, Dallas does seem like a nice fit.
