So...why not Jon Gruden for IU?
Yes, he said reprehensible things in a bunch of e-mails more than a decade ago. Yes, he sounds like a bit of a Neanderthal. He's also a brilliant head coach. It's about winning now. Call him.
I was messing around on X late Sunday night when I saw that the two top IU writers in town, the IndyStar’s Zach Osterman and Peegs.com’s Jeff Rabjohns, were both shooting down a report from The Athletic naming Jon Gruden as a long-shot candidate for the IU job.
Now, Zach and Jeff have good sources and I have absolutely zero doubt they’re right about Gruden’s candidacy, but it got me wondering:
Why WOULDN’T you have interest in a Super Bowl-winning coach who has Bloomington connections and desperately wants to return to the coaching game?
