Because why not. This is not my info, I know who got and that the guy he got it from would absolutely know. Explains a lot of the smoke from the first dance with one Sir Jon Gruden.

Save guy is saying Gruden is again interested, maybe even more this time around and Currie is very smart and wants it to happen. TIFWIW

Gosh I donít know man. Majority of me says no just on the principle of what happened last time. But a lot of people who would know are saying things that make it tough to discount the possibility. I know for a fact he was an inch away from taking it last time, itís possible he still has serious interest.

Yeah, I read all that stuff that goes along with the AGR shoutout. Fairy tale stuff.

That said...I want to believe.

I just don't really believe that's true. I do believe that there were a bunch of UT boosters who thought he was an inch away from taking it, but that's not the same thing at all. It seems clear that Gruden A) has a real soft spot for Tennessee and B) really loves attention, so it's easy to see how there could be a situation where all the boys back in Knoxville thought it was almost a done deal but for Gruden himself if was mostly just an impractical fantasy that he loved the idea of but was never something he was realistically going to take.

I put a little more stock in it until he was walking around Market Square gladhanding this weekend. There is no way he shows up Butch like that if he's actually talking to us.

A little odd that he was sitting in the stands though.

And apparently didnít meet the coaches. Or the players.

Personally, I think it really was that close last time. Hart didnít want to give him the level of control he wanted or the money he wanted for his staff, so he walked.

And I do believe Currie will make the best possible run he can at him this time. If he says no, he says no.

Isn't it far more likely that if Gruden had decided he was ready to be coaching again, he'd have found something else? Do you really think that he was really ready to walk away from his incredibly lucrative, cushy life and go back to 20-hour days for the rush of competition, and then when it didn't work out with Dave Hart....he just didn't do anything? So that five years later he's still sitting here hoping that this time around this one job works out?

What this scenario requires is that for whatever reason our job is the only one Super Bowl-winning Jon Gruden really wants. No NFL job, no other college job. I love Tennessee as much as anyone but I find that pretty hard to believe.
