Rumors are flying that the replacement for Bob Bratkowski will have a very familiar name.
A league source tells us that Jay Gruden, currently the head coach of the Virginia Destroyers of the UFL, will become the next offensive coordinator of the Bengals. The source says the deal is done.
We’ve yet to obtain confirmation of that fact.
Gruden fits the player-acquisition profile that the Bengals have used in recent years. He was arrested for DUI in 2005.
He’s the younger brother of former Raiders and Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden.
