Eagles High on Jay Gruden. Bills & Browns Also in Pursuit





Black Monday is here, and several NFL teams are parting ways with their head coaches as they look to rebuild their franchises from the ground up, and after playing a key role in reviving a Bengals franchise coming off of a 4-12 record in 2010 and having lost it;s franchise QB, many teams believe Gruden can come in and do the same for their franchises.

Multiple reporters from ESP, NFL Network, and other sports outlets are reporting that Jay’s name is popping up frequently in head-coaching searches. Last year, Gruden was reportedly offered a deal to become the next head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he ultimately declined it.

This year, the offense got off to a hot-start, but has gone ice-cold as of late, scoring just two offensive touchdowns in their last 27 possessions. Still, Gruden’s name continues to pop-up, and one report regarding the Cleveland Browns has them considering both Gruden and defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer:

Some other candidates include Patriots OC Josh McDaniels, 49ers OC Greg Roman, Colts OC Bruce Arians, Denver OC Mike McCoy, Falcons OC Dirk Koetter, Bengals OC Jay Gruden, Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan. Jaguars DC Mel Tucker and Bengals DC Mike Zimmer.
