During an appearance on Inside the Locker Room with Rick “Doc” Walker and Brian Mitchell of ESPN 980, Walker asked Howard Eskin of WIP in Philly why the Eagles never pursued Jon Gruden.
“The Eagles internally felt Jon was too high maintenance. They looked at the way it ended for him in Tampa…….They thought he’d be too high maintenance,” said Eskin.
Gruden seems like a great guy, but I get the feeling he comes with a lot of baggage. Most NFL coaches are arrogant and know-it-all’s and I’m sure he’s the same way.
