Gruden celebrates 100th game on MNF

Jon Gruden had a special night on Monday Night Football on ESPN. The former Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach celebrated his 100th game in the booth.

It was announced during the third quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. San Diego Chargers contest. After the announcement, Mike Tricio and Gruden went through some moments the duo had together.

This game was also the same place, which Gruden calls his favorite stadiums. He guided the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl in 2003 over the Raiders at this facility.

When Gruden was interviewed after winning the Bucs only Super Bowl in franchise history, it was Tricio, who had the honors.

There’s talks that the Chargers would move from San Diego and Qualcomm Stadium to a new stadium in Carson, Calif. with the Oakland Raiders. The Chargers could file for relocation beginning in December, but that’s another story for another day.

Gruden, who makes $6.5 million a year in his current Monday Night Football role, has been rumored to leave the job. However, it seems like he loves it too much to leave.

He’s already being considered the next John Madden. The former Raiders coach made a name for himself as a broadcaster and that’s how many remember him, besides the kids, who are playing in Madden video game series.
