According to Fox Sports’ Clay Travis, Monday Night Football Analyst Jon Gruden’s name has come up at Texas. The Longhorns haven’t fired head coach Charlie Strong yet.
He could be let go this weekend depending on the outcome of Friday’s game with the TCU Horned Frogs. According to the Austin American-Statesman, Strong could keep his job if he’s able to blow out the Horned Frogs.
The Longhorns top target is Houston Cougars head coach Tom Herman. Their boosters are pressuring athletic director Mike Perrine to get rid of Strong.
On Thanksgiving night, news began to circulate that Herman could be the Louisiana State University Tigers head coach as soon as this Saturday. If that does happen and the Longhorns fire Strong, it opens up the possibility that a lot of top names would be interested in the job.
Speaking of Gruden, he has turned down many college football and National Football League jobs to stay with ESPN. He’s their highest-paid analyst.
He hasn’t coached a team since 2008 when he was let go by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In his first-year with the Bucs in 2003, he guided the Bucs to their first Super Bowl Championship in a win over his former team, the Oakland Raiders in Sam Diego.
