|Gruden-to-Dallas rumors "ridiculous" -- Sun Jan 27 9:50 pm --|
No truth yet to Cowboys paving the way for ex-Bucs HC
|The Cowboys have a bunch of coaches on their staff that coached for Jon Gruden in Tampa, leading some to speculate that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones might be mulling a move at head coach. Ed Werder of ESPN, who has spent a lot of time covering the Cowboys over the years, reports that he asked a “reliable team source” if the reunion of former Buccaneers assistants was a precursor to Gruden making his way from the broadcast booth to the sideline at JerryWorld. The response?
“Ridiculous.” (Pro Football Talk)|
FF Today's Take: There are certainly enough dots here to make a connection. DC Monte Kiffin, DL coach Rod Marinelli and special teams coach Rich Bisaccia all worked for Gruden in Tampa while OL coach and newly installed offensive play caller Bill Callahan worked for him in Oakland. Jones continues to stand by HC Jason Garrett as "a leader of men", but the Gruden whispers will only get louder if the Cowboys don't start fast in 2013.
