CHICAGO (AP) - Jon Gruden has agreed to a contract extension with ESPN through the 2021 NFL season.

ESPN announced the deal Monday night.

Frequently mentioned for vacant NFL and college coaching openings, the Super Bowl-winning coach joined ESPN in May 2009 as an analyst. He teams with play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico on “Monday Night Football” and appears on other ESPN programs.

“There’s no place I’d rather be,” Gruden said.

ESPN’s NFL rights deal also runs through 2021.

Gruden became the youngest coach to win a Super Bowl at 38 when he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the title after the 2002 season. He also made a Super Bowl appearance with the Oakland Raiders.
