Sparano named interim coach in Oakland; Gruden denied reports

The Oakland Raiders named Tony Sparano as their interim head coach, but there have been rumors about Jon Gruden since the team fired Dennis Allen. Well Wednesday on an appearance with ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike, Jon Gruden cleared up those rumors, or did he?

“Well, I appreciate those seven or eight bloggers, I have seven or eight friends that are bloggers and use different screen names and they bring my name up every year when there’s a coaching job,” Gruden joked. “I’d like to thank those anonymous bloggers, I appreciate it. I’m just trying to hang onto my job to be honest with you guys. It’s four weeks into the season; some of these teams haven’t even played three games yet, so I’m not even thinking about coaching.

“I’m thinking about heading to Washington next week, watching the world champions and my brother coach. That will be exciting for me.”

I would bot be surprised if Gruden does take another shot soon.
