NFL teams with head coaching vacancies have already brought in multiple candidates as they are conducting their search. One name that has been absent from interviews is former Super Bowl winning head coach and current Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden.
While there doesn’t appear to be much of a market for Gruden at this time, there is one job that he would be interested in taking.
Per John Clark of NBC10 in Philly:
Ron Jaworski on 975 Fanatic says he talked with Jon Gruden. Eagles havent reached out to Gruden, and says Jon would be interested

The lack of interest in Gruden has been surprising, so it is possible that his ESPN pal is trying to do him a solid by getting his name out there and in the discussions.
Whether or not Gruden gets an interview opportunity this season remains to be seen, but he is secretly sitting back and hoping for a call from Philly.
