After talking a bit (but saying nothing) about rumors linking him to the job at the University of Louisville during an appearance on ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike In The Morning, Gruden was spotted at Thursday night’s game between Cincinnati and South Florida.
John Taylor of CFT has the details on Gruden’s response.
Well, J.T. would have the details if Gruden had actually said anything.
“I’m just here to support the Bulls,” Gruden said. (Which, given his SNL Super Fan/”maybe this will make me sounded taller” accent, probably sounded more like, “I’m just here to support da Bulls.”)
So there has yet to be an unequivocal “I’m not going to be the Louisville coach” denial from Gruden, and that makes sense. The guy is looking to keep his name at the top of the “A” list, and that doesn’t happen by saying things that suggest he’s never going to leave his new job, which despite early rave reviews has quickly dissolved into an exercise in praising Brett Favre, the Wildcat, and one or more players per week that Gruden might like to sign as free agents if/when he returns to the NFL.
