The rumor mill in sports world today is centers on Jon Gruden, the ESPN analyst and former NFL coach. Apparently he's seriously considering a return to the sidelines next season. And while he said publicly he plans to stay with ESPN, that is not to be believed, according to sources close to the situation.

Mike Freeman of CBSSports reported that Gruden will indeed interview with NFL teams

Gruden was last coaching with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers until 2008, when he was fired. Sources close to Gruden, speaking with Yahoo Sports, says Gruden will start speaking to teams next Monday. 

While he has remained committed to ESPN publicly, Gruden's camp has quietly been talking to teams behind the scenes, according to Freeman's report.

NJ.com, also citing sources close to Gruden, says he is seriously after the Philadelphia Eagle's coaching job. 

NFL.com's own in-house reporter says he's heard rumblings that Gruden could also go to Oakland to coach the Raiders. 

Gruden was born in Indiana, to a football family. He graduated from University of Dayton and then was hired as an assistant coach at the University of Tennessee in the 80s. He spent two years after that as the quarterbacks coach at Southeast Missouri State. Gruden then moved to the University of the Pacific in 1989 as offensive assistant as the tight ends coach, where he coached Scott Lubow who was second team All Conference.

He was coach of the winner of the Super Bowl XXXVII.
