Could Jon Gruden Be Back as Buccaneers Coach in 2018? Sounding More and More Like It

The Buccaneers may very well be in the market for a new head coach after Sunday, but the coach they may want the most may not be that all new.

Pro Football Talk reports that none other than Jon Gruden might be the number one name on the list for the Buccaneers, and there’s a growing sense around the league that the move very well may happen.

As the end of the regular season (and the launch of the annual coaching carousel) approaches, no one is saying anything about Jon Gruden returning or not returning to coaching. And that potentially says everything.

There’s a growing sense in league circles, as explained by multiple league sources to PFT over the past two days, that Gruden will return to Tampa Bay as the next coach of the Buccaneers.

Gruden last commented on the situation three weeks ago, at a Tampa-area press event that, coincidentally, a handful of reporters covering the team were told about. Said Gruden on the possibility of returning to coaching, “I’ve got a job I’m trying to hang onto. I love football, I love what I’m doing and I can’t control all the reports.”

He may not be able to control some of the reports (like this one), but it was Gruden who pulled the rip cord on the lawnmower by musing about coaching at a time when most assumed he’d migrated to the Bill Cowher don’t-bother-to-even-ask phase of his career.
