Gruden Done as Coach of the Bucs?


We’ve got no hard information on which to base this one.


But the reality is that, after seeing a 9-3 start disintegrate into a 9-7 finish and no playoff appearance, Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden doesn’t seem to be nearly as secure in his position as he was a month ago.

The team’s late-season skid coincided with news of the departure of long-time defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, who’ll be joining his son, Lane, at the University of Tennessee. Ironically, that’s the same school to which Gruden had been linked via rumor and speculation after Phil Fulmer announced that he wouldn’t be returning next year.

So how about Notre Dame? Even though the Irish have declared that coach Charlie Weis will be back in 2009 and despite a 49-21 win over Hawaii to cap the season, we could see the powers-that-be in South Bend trying to finagle an upgrade, if in the aftermath of a season of disappointment and failure Gruden decides that the time is right to hurl “F” bombs under the watchful eye of Touchdown Jesus.

It’s pure speculation on our part, but we wouldn’t be surprised at all if, at some point in the next week or two, the media is shocked to learn that Weis is out and Gruden is in at ND.

    jon gruden fucking SUCKS! lets get that out of the way first. whoever said he is a coaching genius needs to have their heads checked. i’ve never seen such a collapse like the bucs had in the final and most important month of the dicipline, no offense, no nothing. and monte kiffen….good riddance. go join your punk son in that death trap called tennessee. i hope UF beats you by 60 every year. your so called “great” defense let the whole city down. pathetic. we need football people to run this team. not people who are full of themselves. i swear if we dont get somebody in who knows how to run a football team, im gonna be a pittsburg fan next year. this is truly pathetic. i cant even watch football now.
