Gruden on hand

← return to Redskins 360

Jon Gruden, one of the most rumored candidates to coach the Redskins in 2010, was on hand for practice today.

The former Oakland and Tampa Bay coach is in his first season as part of the “Monday Night Football” announcing team. The announcers almost always attend the home team’s final practice of the week in advance of calling the game.

Gruden, fired after last season when the Bucs lost their final four games, won the Super Bowl in 2002, his first season in Tampa. In 11 years with the Raiders and Bucs, Gruden was 100-85. He led Oakland to the AFC Championship Game in 2000 and the AFC West title in 2001. The Bucs won the NFC South in 2005 and 2007, losing a home playoff game to the Redskins the first year.
