Jon Gruden Reportedly Wants To Coach In 2012; ESPN Says Otherwise

ESPN's Monday Night Football announced Jon Gruden is back in the news after a Monday night report from the San Diego Union Tribune stated he wanted to return to coaching in 2012.

Gruden is currently under contract with ESPN, who issued a statement to Pro Football Talk regarding Gruden's future.

"Jon signed a multi-year extension with ESPN this fall. He remains committed to being a part of Monday Night Football for many years."
