Jon Gruden’s Statement Shooting Down Miami Rumors
Earlier today, rumors surfaced that ESPN’s Jon Gruden was being offered the coaching job at the University of Miami following the firing of Randy Shannon on Saturday.
Someone named Lake Lewis, Jr. of Sports Journey tweeted this in the mid-afternoon causing Twitter to go crazy.
It caused reporters to work to either confirm or debunk the rumor. Sports Illustrated’s Peter King managed to shoot it down with a simple 11 word tweet.
And to finally end the speculation, ESPN has just released this statement in the name of Gruden.
Jon Gruden Statement
ESPN Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden issued the following statement this evening in response to reports about him and the University of Miami
“I am committed to Monday Night Football and to ESPN. I enjoy working with Mike, Jaws and our entire crew and am just trying to get better at this job.”
And this hopefully will put an end to the rumors that burned up Twitter today. Interesting how this broke from outside ESPN and it was debunked outside ESPN.
