Jon Gruden to be named Eagles New Head Coach on Tuesday?
A source has told Philly2Philly to not be surprised if Jon Gruden is hired as the Eagles next head coach on Tuesday, replacing Andy Reid- whose been at the helm since 1999.
Does this make sense? Kind of. There have been rumors of discord between head coach Andy Reid and the Eagles management since the team's playoff loss to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers. Gruden however, has said he plans to return to ESPN in 2011. Moreover, would Gruden fire a recently hired Juan Castillo and hire a new defensive coordinator?
As you know, Gruden is no stranger to Philadelphia. He was the team's offensive coordinator under Ray Rhodes before leaving in 1998 to take the Raiders head coaching job. In January 2003, we all know what his Tampa Bay Bucs did to the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. Gruden's team later trounced the Raiders to win the Super Bowl.
Can Gruden give the Eagles the Super Bowl the city and their fans are long overdue for? Or has someone started a malicious rumor to rile up Eagles fans?
Philly2Philly is all over this, so if there is validity to it, stay tuned!
