Jon Gruden is a very good football coach. But as good as he is, even Chucky can’t coach two teams at once. Yet how is it that he accept one job and still get paid by another team at the same time? Ask the University of Tennessee Volunteers and Cleveland Browns.
This one is still just a rumor, but take a look at how this could work.
Reportedly, Gruden has received an offer from Tennessee to coach the Volunteers college football team. No financial terms of the deal have been released, but Gruden is at least weighing his options before deciding whether or not he will return to ESPN as a commentator and analyst past this season.
But while he could head to the college football ranks and join the Vols, could he still get paid by the Browns of the NFL at the same time?
While the Browns have come out in denial, there have been rumors that Browns’ new owner Jimmy Haslam – who is a Tennessee grad as well as a big booster – would give Gruden a stake in Cleveland’s ownership if he were to accept the job as Volunteers’ head coach.
Again, this is still just rumors and speculation. But, generally speaking, behind every rumor is a bit of truth.
