Gruden Is Target of Miami Hurricanes’ Coach Search, Herald Says

Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden has drawn the interest of the University of Miami following Randy Shannon’s Nov. 27 firing, the Miami Herald reported.

Gruden, who is now a National Football League analyst for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” has been the focus of the Atlantic Coast Conference school’s coaching search, and Miami would be willing to pay Gruden far more than it paid Shannon, the Herald said, citing a school trustee.

Gruden in a statement released last night by Walt Disney Co.’s ESPN said: “I am committed to Monday Night Football and to ESPN.”

The 47-year-old Gruden led the Buccaneers to a Super Bowl title during the 2002 season, the first of his seven years with the team. He also coached the Oakland Raiders for four seasons, compiling a 98-81 career coaching record with five division titles. This is Gruden’s second season as a television analyst.

Shannon, 44, was fired after his team lost to the University of South Florida to drop to 7-5. He was 28-22 in four seasons, and signed a four-year extension before the start of the 2010 campaign that was worth $1.5 million per year, according to the Palm Beach Post.
