Rumors of Tennessee Pursuing Gruden Denied

By Jim McCoy Wed 28th November Sportscollege footballJon GrudenTennessee
Jon Gruden says he hasn't received an offer to coach the Tennessee Volunteers as part of a deal that includes becoming part owner of the Cleveland Browns. Memphis TV station WREG reported Gruden was weighing a Tennessee offer that would give him a piece of the Browns, who are owned by Jimmy Haslam - brother of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam. Their father, Jim, played on Tennessee's 1951 national championship team. Gruden, a former NFL coach and current ESPN analyst, said Wednesday on ESPN's "Mike & Mike In The Morning" show there is "no truth" to the report. Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis says the report is "completely erroneous." Tennessee didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press. Tennessee is looking to replace Derek Dooley, who was fired on Nov. 18.
