2 responses to “Panthers interviewed Jay Gruden for offensive coordinator

  1. You can tell a lot about a head coach by the coaching staff he attracts and who wants to work with him.

    Not really an inspiring list of offensive masterminds.

  2. Gruden was here in Washington. You can question if he’s head coaching material, but he’s an exceptional offensive coordinator and a great talent evaluator. We still have starters on the team that he identified, even on defense!

    He deserves a top job somewhere.
