Jon Gruden Will Not be Taking the Notre Dame Job – or Any Other – This Offseason

Jon Gruden: “Jon Gruden has agreed to an exclusive multi-year agreement with the company. In addition to his MNF role alongside play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico and analyst Ron Jaworski, Gruden will appear on ESPN’s NFL Draft and Super Bowl week coverage, among other platforms, and he will call the 2010 NFL Pro Bowl in South Florida on January 31, 2010. Gruden will serve as an analyst for ESPN Radio’s 2010 Rose Bowl and BCS title game broadcasts.” Notre Dame fans can cross Gruden’s name off the list. No other name besides Cincinnati’s Brian Kelly (that connection began last Fall) has legitimately surfaced in the hunt to replace Weis, who seems certain to be canned at season’s end. [ESPN PR]
