Jon Gruden: 'I am committed to Monday Night Football'

By Cindy Boren

The firing of Randy Shannon by the University of Miami created a job opening and you know what that means. The Jon Gruden rumors immediately began to swirl.

There were reports that Chucky had initiated contact to discuss his return to coaching, that there was a $3 million offer ... but Gruden shot the talk out of the sky, at least for now, by issuing a statement through ESPN:

"I am committed to Monday Night Football and to ESPN. I enjoy working with Mike (Tirico), (Ron Jaworski) and our entire crew and am just trying to get better at this job."

Who turns down 3.4 million? A guy who makes 4.3 million sitting in a booth talking.

College has rules and you have to recruit. Jon will sit tight for an NFL gig.

Why the heck would he want a college job when he can probably make $5M/ the NFL. Heck if he was available few years back the midget would have given him $7m/yr.
