Jon Gruden says again that he's committed to 'Monday Night Football'

By Cindy Boren

Jon Gruden wasn't really serious about coaching the Miami Hurricanes; he was just trying to be helpful.

"I'd just like to say I'm committed to ESPN," Gruden said on a conference call, apologizing about speculation that he might leave "Monday Night Football" for the Hurricanes' sideline. He reiterated what he'd said earlier in the week. "There's not a lot to add. I'm very thankful to have the job that I have and I'm eager to try to get better at it. And I know there was a lot of speculation over the last few days, and for that, I'm sorry. I'm just excited to be with 'Monday Night Football.' "

Although he met Wednesday with Miami Athletic Director Kirby Holcutt, Gruden said he was merely trying to help Holcutt find the right guy, adding "there was never anything really serious about this."

"My brother went to the U of M medical school, Gruden said. I'm a big fan. I want the Hurricanes to do well. If I can help Kirby and the Hurricanes find the right guy, I'm here to help him do that. It was an exploratory meeting. ... We never got into specifics of the coaching job."

Gruden's MNF commentary is as homoerotic as if he were reading passages from Huckleberry Finn...
