New Sources Claim That Jon Gruden Will Be The Next Head Coach At Miami

South Florida Sun Sentinel reporter Steve Gorten has claimed that two separate sources have confirmed that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden will be the next head coach at the University of Miami. According to Gorten, Gruden and Miami athletic directer Kirby Hocutt are meeting Tuesday night or Wednesday to finalize the details of the contract.  

Gruden had been rumored to be making progress towards taking the position on Sunday night, but the current Monday Night Football broadcaster quickly shot down the whispers:

From Jon Gruden: "I am committed to Monday Night Football and to ESPN. I enjoy working w/ Mike, Jaws and our entire crew and am just trying to get better at this job.

Like we so often hear these days, Gruden's denial didn't exactly say that he wasn't negotiating with the Hurricanes, and if he ends up taking the job in the next few days it will be just another example of a coaching prospect trying to buy a little time while a contract gets finalized.
