It seems that the dance between Jon Gruden and Miami may not be done after all. Two days after Gruden released a statement saying that he was happy with his current job at ESPN, a report on Canesport.com says that Gruden and Miami are very close to a deal. In fact, the report says that the two sides are basically just hammering out the final details.
Sources have told CaneSport that final details are being hammered out and, barring a last minute glitch, Jon Gruden will be the next Miami Hurricanes football coach.
The report also says that if Gruden is hired, his brother Jay Gruden will be brought on as his offensive coordinator, and that the deal could be announced as early as Wednesday.
Still, the phrase from the report that stands out to me is "barring a last-minute glitch." That leaves an awful lot of leeway should this not come to fruition. Especially since this is the same site that pronounced Dan Mullen "Option 1A" earlier on Tuesday.
If I were a Miami fan, i wouldn't go getting my hopes up or start trying to sell Chuckie dolls in Miami jerseys just yet.
