Jay Gruden Finishes Meeting with Cardinals, Eagles Up Next

UPDATE 5:30 

Jay Gruden wrapped up his interview with the Arizona Cardinals today, and he revealed to the media that he will be interviewing with the Philadelphia Eagles next week:




According to Cardinals Vice President of Media Relations Mark Dalton, not only is Jay Gruden meeting with Arizona about their vacant head-coaching job, but will also be available to the media this afternoon:

The Jacksonville Jaguars have fired head coach Mike Mularkey after one season, the worst in franchise history. New general manager David Caldwell made the announcement today. Mularkey went 2-14 this season, and now there is one more head-coaching vacancy, and there’s already two coaches the Jags are expected to target:



If you recall, the Jaguars interview Bengals Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden last season before ultimately hiring Mularkey. While Jay denied that any interview took place and also said he never contacted the Jaguars, most believe he’ll eventually leave for a head-coaching job, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Jags give him a call sometime this offseason.

Jay has already been linked to the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals, and despite his unit finishing ranked 18th and 12th in points per game and 20th and 22nd in yards per game, NFL teams believe he is a worthy candidate of an NFL head-coaching job.

He has stated that he intends on being back in Cincinnati next season.
