Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden has stated that he is open to interviewing for a head coaching job in the NFL, but his younger brother is the Gruden family member receiving all the attention so far this offseason. Jay Gruden interviewed with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday and according to reports, will now interview with the San Diego Chargers and the Philadelphia Eagles for their head coaching jobs.
The Philadelphia Eagles website confirms that Gruden is scheduled to visit with the team on Monday. NFL Network’s Albert Breer reported on Friday that the Chargers are also planning on meeting with Gruden, although no exact date was released.
The younger Gruden has been the offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals for the past two years and has no NFL head coaching experience. Under Gruden, the Bengals finished the season ranked 17th in passing offense and 18th running the ball, qualifying for the playoffs in each of the last two seasons.
