Gruden Visits Florham Park

New, comments

Former head coach and ESPN analyst Jon Gruden spent three days at the Jets facility last week, according to reports.

GM Mike Tannenbaum brought the former Bucs head coach in to observe practices and speak with coaches and players, looking for a different set of eyes to put things into perspective.

As the Jets look to build on last year's success and attempt to win a championship in 2010-11, it certainly can't hurt to bring in a head coach who has done just that.

Gruden was the winning-est coach in Bucs history (60-57), and coached them to victory in Super Bowl XXXVII.

It should be noted that Gruden is still contractually obligated to ESPN after he signed a  mult-iyear extension with the network in 2009. According to the source, there was no front-office talk about a position being offered as a coach or with management: just an opinion.
