Per Brice’s blog:

“The overtures to Jon Gruden, a Super Bowl champion coach, the NFL’s most recognizable broadcast voice and one-time UT assistant coach in the 1980s, are very real and much further along than at any point in any of Tennessee’s previous courtships to the mega-star football mind.

Six different sources, ranging from current coaches to former all-time great Vols to college administrators, in the past 72-96 hours tell me that Gruden is far more seriously considering this Tennessee offer than ever before; so much so that Gruden is making some preliminary calls to coaches and other college athletics folks about potentially joining him in Knoxville.“

Also from Brice:

"Next weekend he (Gruden) is allegedly on the verge of his third trip to Knoxville within the past few weeks in between his Monday Night Football obligations for ESPN, which pays Gruden approximately $6 million annually as its top NFL on-air personality.

It remains a situation that must be seen to be believed, but, if this was Santa Claus and his plate of chimney-side cookies, well, someone’s at least taken a drink of the milk."

Should have a final answer at that time as I would guess Tennessee will push him to sign a contract. Right now I think Brice is being conservative with his 50/50 declaration, though he is the bitb.”



“The feeling within the Mullen and Taggart camps is now that the Tennessee job is not going to be open long.”
Gruden in town later this week... Hubbs says Currie will work on the search later this week 🤔

Here is the latest that I can gather from him.


I do not believe Gruden has given Tennessee a Y/N yet
Here is what I have gathered from really my only good nug provider on this: Kelly to UF is looking more and more likely and that could be done very soon. Gruden is still Tennessee's top guy as he has been for over a month and they are waiting on him and he is still expected to be in town later this week. They expect a yes or no in the next 48-72.

Tennessee and Florida filling quickly is very bad for business if you are looking to get a raise or extended security for your client. There is a concentrated effort to try and get Tennessee buzz with some guys like Mullen, Fleck, Taggart and Leach, even more so today with the feeling being that Kelly is going to take UF.

Remember there is ZERO coming from UT about this so everything you are getting from national guys is coming from agents and coaches who have strong incentives to kill the Gruden talk for as long as possible for their own benefit.

I am at about the same spot I was yesterday on this in my belief that it is somewhere around 70/30.

I think Brice, Wallace, Feldman are the guys to trust on this. Some wild stuff coming from most of the local guys on this.

he started posting on 98 recently. He knows the board owner pretty well and he lured him on.

I'm confused, what board is even being referenced in both of our threads right now? Are they talking about the "Harry Potter" board? The board that must not be named?

I went to look but you have to register to read the Grumors so I'm not reading them.
