Jon Gruden hasn’t coached since 2008, when his Tampa Bay Buccaneers would finish 9-7. Perhaps not coincidentally, 2007 was the last time the Bucs made the playoffs. In fact, they have seen just two winning seasons since Gruden stopped coaching.
But now that they are 4-10 and in the middle of a frighteningly disappointing season, he’s eyeing a comeback.

We’re not going to pretend Gruden is a good fit at this point anymore. It’s been a wile. And, he has said some awfully out of touch things since stepping down. However, his interest level hasn’t been this higha��it seemsa��in years.
But at this point, who knows? After all, the Buccaneers are such a mess. Why not make this a little more fun, right?
