Report: Jon Gruden tells Tennessee no thanks

The Big Orange dream of hiring Jon Gruden as its football coach has officially come to an end.

The Knoxville News-Sentinel reports this morning that the former Tennessee graduate assistant, who married a Tennessee cheerleader, has told the Vols that he has no interest in their open head coaching job.

“The source said Tennessee reached out to Gruden late last week, but after discussing matters with his family, Gruden declined to pursue the job,” reports Evan Woodbery. “The source said no financial figures were discussed and no contract was offered.”
