According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, some people around the NFL are convinced Jon Gruden will get back into coaching this offseason and the one team that might be the right situation for him is the Philadelphia Eagles.
People around the NFL who know are convinced Jon Gruden is coming back to coaching this year, provided the right situation presents itself. I’ve been told Gruden feels he needs to come back now if he’s ever going to do it. He already has been away from the game for four years, and it becomes increasingly difficult for a coach to return the longer he is away. The right situation for Gruden very well could be in Philadelphia. People close to him think he has a good chance of landing there.
I think Philly would be a great fit for Gruden. Despite two very bad seasons in 2011 and 2012, they’re still loaded with enough talent to win.
