Jon Gruden kept his statement short and to the point on Tuesday night. But I’d expect that we’ll continue to hear him try to explain himself for the coming days and weeks.
When Gruden was given one of the biggest coach contract in sports history prior to the 2018 season, it looked like a slam dunk for the franchise.
But after he failed to put a competitive team on the field, Jon Gruden now has this extreme baggage hanging over his name forever.
I’d be shocked if we ever see him again in the NFL.
