Jon Gruden Signs ESPN Extension, MNF To Remain Insufferable

Bad news for both teams in need of a new head coach and for those of us who used to enjoy watching football on Monday night: Jon Gruden has signed a multi-year extension with ESPN.

↵

There were rumors that Gruden was atop Dan Snyder’s wishlist as the replacement for Jim Zorn, somewhat by default with all other would-be options making their disinterest clear. So much for that. Even as a Redskins fan, I’m actually far more upset that I’m stuck listening to Gruden on Monday night’s than I am about not having him as the team’s next coach. Expect a few more years of hard-hitting analysis, such as, “THIS GUY here … THIS GUY, he just knows how to play the game of football,” which I always find much more insightful than Ron Jaworski’s ability to actually break down plays.
