05:36 PM ET 12.30 | Coaches in college football and the NFL are losing their jobs this winter. One of the names that commonly comes up as a replacement is that of former NFL head coach Jon Gruden. He led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl win before joining ESPN and the Monday Night Football crew. Gruden however says he isn't interested in the jobs despite reports and rumors that teams are interested in him or he is interested in them. Gruden went as far as to say he didn't even want to be considered.

That's good, because he's not considered an announcer either!!

To Bad! He was a better head-coach than he was a sports announcer.

Please , someone make him an offer he can't refuse and get him off MNF

December 30, 2013  08:23 PM ET

He's got a good gig now.. he doesn't get fired when he says something stupid.. so he'll be on MNF until he dies.. which ain't good thing

....a lack of energy, he doesn't have.

He's waiting for the offer that gives him complete control, GM/HC, and a piece of ownership.
May never get it, but if not he's got a good thing going now.

ESPN is so smart that they inserted a clause into Gruden's MNF contract stating he can't become a head coach again until his contract is up 2016.

The Vikings might be interested...

Really? Cause every time I see him announce a game he slips in a bitter line about not having a coaching job.

They think he's responsible for the high ratings...

Why would he want the headaches of coaching?

Its unanimous Gruden. No one wants you announcing games. So you can move back to Somalia and resume your roll as Pirate leader Captain Toe-Head . No one will miss you.

Hey Peter King, maybe you should tell your friends at ESPN that the public is tired Chucky he wore out his welcome.

He's got a good gig with tons of money and no pressure. He sleeps well at night.

I'm sure ($10-mill./yr.) from some dumb-de$perate/owner would change his mind......!

December 31, 2013  07:12 AM ET

Ummm...... What's wrong with Gruden announcing games ?

I enjoy him in the booth as well as his annual QB prospect shows.

You guys are lame yo.

As long as he stays away from Dallas I don't care what he does.
