Not that Haley was going anywhere to begin with but for those of you bandying around the thought that Haley is getting fired at the end of the season... or in Go Athan's case before the next game.

Gruden agrees to five-year extension with ESPN

Jon Gruden will remain in the ESPN "Monday Night Football" broadcast booth for another five seasons.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders coach agreed to an exclusive contract with ESPN that begins in September 2012.

"Our Monday Night Football crew is special, and to have the opportunity to continue to be a part of this team, working these big-time NFL prime time games every week on ESPN, I'm fired up," Gruden said in a statement.

Gruden has earned two Sports Emmy Award nominations for his work in the "Monday Night Football" booth, where he is joined by play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico and analyst Ron Jaworski.

The 48-year-old Gruden is the winningest coach in Buccaneers history (60-57) and coached the team to victory in Super Bowl XXXVII, where Tampa Bay defeated the Raiders, his former team.

"Jon is a rare individual who has been successful at everything he has done, going from one of the youngest coaches to win a Super Bowl to reinventing himself with this new broadcasting career in his 40s," Gruden's agent, Bob LaMonte, said in the statement.

The only loser in that scenario is the real estate agent in Leawood, Clark's pilot, Best Buy, and the gang.

He would break that contract for a New York team. I bet he still practices grimacing in the mirror for that day

Drinking game idea: every time Gruden says "This Guy" you have to drink. You will be unconscious before any MNF game.

Doesn't Dungy have a better record than Gruden, W/L wise? I think their article might be wrong. (Dungy is 54-42)

I think they just mean that Gruden has more wins....not a better winning percentage.

ESPN probably pays him a shit load for this to happen. There are going to be coaching vacancy's next year that would probably fit his bill and ESPN wanted to lock him up before that could happen I guess.

Dungy's record would be like Herm's if he didn't have Peyton Manning.

It's pretty unfortunate that Tim Tebow and Kyle Boller are going to save Haley's job.

Just a rotten turn of events.

Petro was talking about this deal today with regard to who might replace Sparano in Miami when he mercifully gets the axe. Both Petro and his guest from the Miami area seemed to think that Gruden's contract with ESPN would be quickly broken for the right coaching opportunity.

I think we all know that pretty much any big name guy Scott wouldn't hire.

So that includes, Chucky, Fisher, Cowher, etc. None of these guys would come here because they'd want too much control and Scott can't be the only man that way.

No I would expect some lesser assistant.

These days contracts are made to be broken. Contract or no, I'm sure there's an out for him to accept a head coach job in the NFL.

ROFL

I can't wait till the Chiefs play the Chargers on Monday night. Jackie Battle will tear off an 8-yard run, and Gruden will just be beside himself with excitement. "This guy is becoming one of the premier backs in the league! Look at the way his legs just move forward as he runs. This guy is like a thoroughbred horse out there!"

Yeah I'm guessing the ESPN gig is pretty good, I'm sure he's making decent coin for working one day a week and has about 10,000% less bullshit to deal with.

I think he's motivated to deal with the bull. I hope this team isn't in the market, but if we are, realize that nobody has the drive to be able to take 2 different teams to the promised land in the NFL.

That's not totally fair. He completely turned the Tampa franchise around, and they were pretty much the only team that shut the 99 Rams down.

Boller aint saving Haley ass LMAO the Chiefs may very well win the game (and I do not think they will) if they do Boller will not be the factor~

They likely would have beat the Rams with Shaun King at QB if today's rules were in place as far as catching a low thrown ball are concerned.
