REPORT: Jay Gruden Hired as OC

Well go figure, we put the podcast “in the can” when the Pro-Football Talk blog post comes out. League sources according to Mike Florio are saying that Jay Gruden has accepted the job in Cincinnati to replace Bob Bratkowski as Bengals Offensive Coordinator.

Gruden is the brother of Jon Gruden and a former quarterback at the University of Louisville. He recently spent the last two seasons as the head coach of the Virginia Destroyers, formerly the Florida Tuskers of the UFL. According to the Destroyers Wikipedia entry, Jay has accepted the job as Offensive Coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals.

NOTE: We do mention Gruden in tomorrow’s podcast however we’ll have much more reaction in episode 23, WHEN or IF it becomes official.
