As the University of Miami continues its pursuit of Jon Gruden, the school’s athletic director plans to meet with the coach today.
The Miami Herald reports that Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt traveled to Tampa to meet with Gruden, a meeting expected to take place Wednesday.
It’s not clear yet whether Gruden actually wants the job, but he is believed to be Miami’s first choice.
According to the Herald, Miami is already working on a marketing plan based around Gruden to sell 2011 football tickets, and the school has evaluated how much Gruden would improve attendance, which faltered this season.
Some reports have said that the deal is already all but done, but Miami trustees have said that’s not the case. Still, Miami’s athletic director plans to make his pitch to Gruden today.
