The Los Angeles Rams are targeting former NFL coach and current ESPN pundit Jon Gruden to fill their head coaching vacancy.
Yahoo Sports reporter Charles Robinson broke the news writing, “The Los Angeles Rams are moving toward a meeting with ESPN analyst Jon Gruden about the team’s head coaching vacancy, multiple sources with knowledge of the Rams’ coaching search have told Yahoo Sports. The sources indicated Gruden has become a focal point on the Rams’ list of candidates, but that other candidates could also come into play — notably Stanford Cardinal head coach David Shaw and New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton.”
Gruden won a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before being fired, and he now is an incredibly popular and successful ESPN personality.
However, the Rams will have to open the bank in order to lure Gruden away because he’s currently making a reported $6.5 million a year.
If the Rams are able to reach a deal with Gruden then prepare for the internet to break down because it’ll be absolutely wild to see the eccentric coach back on the sidelines.
